Here is a Kickstarter project I really heart. Clip Tree by Minnesota based designer Matthew Plumstead of McCarty Quinn studio is a great customizable entryway item and not only. The piece is a configurable valet that can be used in any room of the house, and even in the office. “From cell phones to soap, from spring scarves to towels, from messenger bags to a child’s raincoat, Clip Tree provides a way to elegantly frame our possessions,” – says designer in his Kickstarter intro. The product comes to you with six multifunctional clips – hook, bowl, tray, peg, hoop and mirror. In order to attach these clips to a wooden dowel all you need is a screwdriver. Both wall mounted and free-standing versions are available. Pledge at Matthew’s Kickstarter page to get yours!
This valet designed by Linda Altmann for German brand STADTNOMADEN, is not only minimal and slick – it can be a truly multifunctional item around the house. The piece, appropriately called Kammerdiener, comes apart to create two leaning valets that can be used anywhere you need mobile storage. It can also serve as a single unit with the optional tray for smaller things. Made from solid ash, Kammerdiener does not need any tools for assembly - the parts simply interlock. Lightweight and easily movable, the piece can be taken in any room and put to work. Lovely idea!
