High/Low: Space-Saving Retractable Wall Hooks

Team 7 Wall Panel with Coat Rack

Lately we’ve been admiring polished versions of the retractable wall hooks used on planes, trains, and boats. Here are three versions at three very different prices. Now if only our clothes, tools, and dishes would put themselves away when not in use.

Team 7 Wall Panel with Coat Rack
Above: This Wall Panel with Coat Rack by Austrian design firm Team 7 has integrated metal hooks that fold flush when not in use. It’s available in six woods, including walnut (shown), and can be installed alone or with additional features such as mirrors, benches, and shoe cabinets. For pricing and purchasing information, contact Wharfside in the UK and Möbili Mobel in the US.
Knax Beech Lacquer
Above: The Knax Beech Lacquer Coat Rack, handmade in Denmark since 1995, is a made-to-last classic (its springs have been tested more than half a million times without breaking). Shown here in beech with aluminum hooks, Knax is available in 11 wood finishes, 12 painted colors, and three hook finishes—aluminum, black, and special-edition copper. Prices range from $102 for a two-hook rack to $258 for a 10-hook rack. In the US, a selection is available from CA Modern Home for $110 to $269.

Ikea Bjarnum Folding Hook

Above: For a basic option, Ikea’s Bjärnum hooks are made of aluminum and fold flat when not in use. They aren’t spring-loaded, but at $9.99 for a pack of three, you might not mind manually closing them.
