Ready for winter? The New Hang Out extends for more coats

When living in a small space such as an apartment or dorm or traveling in an RV, where to hang clothes can be quite the conundrum. The New Hang Out offers a place to hang clothes when those dinky closets just aren’t big enough. This product can also fold up, so it’s rather versatile in that it can also be used as a coat hook in the winter, a summer solution for wet towels and swimwear, or in the laundry room as a temporary place to hang clothes that need to be line dried rather than put in the dryer.

One drawback of the Hang Out is that it only holds about 10 pounds using a command strip unless it is secured into a stud or wall anchor, though it isn’t noted how much extra the product can hold in that instance. This campaign seeks to raise $25,000 by December 14, 2014. For $39, backers get one product with an expected deliver of May 2015.


Ziggy hooks up with belongings as modern wall art

ZiggyMany home accessories that make life a little easier forget design and succumb to functionality only, much like the U-Hook. Ziggy — not to be confused with the comic strip character (even though it resembles the detail on Charlie Brown’s shirt) — is a functional hook with a little bit of interior design added on. One Ziggy looks simply like the top of a triangle, but when put together, these hooks look like zigzags. Items either hang off or rest on top of this nifty hook system and sizes are easily customizable. One of these Australian-made hooks goes for $15 AUD with a black or white option and an estimated delivery date of August 2014. Its creators hope to raise $10,000 AUD in their 30-day Kickstarter campaign.
