We bought Luca Nichetto’s Hook Box several years ago, without any idea of where we would install it (we did consider it for the downstairs bathroom in our house, but it didn’t fit nicely). We just both loved the design, and knew we’d eventually put it to good use.
Anyway, I finally hung it up last night! It’s in the entryway to the apartment, and will work perfectly for hanging dog leashes and stashing keys, sunglasses, and mail when we walk in the door. There’s no room for a little table since there are doorways everywhere (five of them in the tiny entry area!), but this is just right.
(Oh, and by the way? I refuse to use to term “landing strip” in reference to anything in my home. It’s right up there with “water feature” and “window treatment” on my list of cringe-inducing décor-speak.)
The Alexander Girard canvas is from Urban Outfitters. I was a little twitchy when UO released their line of licensed Girard good last year. He’s one of my longtime design heroes, and, well. You know. But then I got over myself and ordered this canvas, and I must say…the quality is very good, and I’m happy with it.
