Hung this in our guest bath for extra convenience. Looks great and takes up zero space. I really like that there aren't sharp hooks always out, but only when needed.
Best coat hook ever!
Petra from Moss Beach, CA– Verified Buyer
Best coat hook ever! Sleek, super functional, holds tons of stuff, and coat hooks can be closed so they do not stick out when not in use (a fantastic feature for narrow spots or for a clean look). I have already gotten compliments on it from numerous people. Great overall design!

The U+ Studio Collection, which offers a range of sophisticated aesthetics from raw to sleek, can be found exclusively at contemporary design retail specialists.
Umbra began in 1979, when boyhood friends, Paul Rowan and Les Mandelbaum joined forces to create exciting, everyday products that alter the overall aesthetic of a home, beginning with a printed window shade unlike anything then in the market ("umbra" means shade in latin).
Twenty-five years later, Umbra's award-winning design team - 22 men and women from all over the world and notable outside product designers, all under Paul Rowan's direction - remains the heart and soul of the company. Its offices worldwide now house more than 450 people.
