Front Door Addition
Khom from Chelsea, MI– Verified Buyer
This coat hook is pretty neat with the hooks that flip up when not in use. We placed it by the front door since our coat closet is farther down the hall and this way we can have extra hooks for guests' coats and hats. We got the lighter wood which works great with our base boards in the house.

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.
