Art + Design + I Want This

Walnut Hang-It-All.

I don’t usually do “new product” posts, but it’s a quiet Sunday, and geez . . . how gorgeous is this? A walnut Hang-It-All?! We already have the standard multi-colored version in our hallway, but I think we might need to find a place somewhere else in the house for this guy, too.

From the DWR website:

In August 2010, Herman Miller, Inc. introduced this limited edition Hang-It-All made with a black frame and solid walnut balls. This special item brings a sophisticated twist to the classic multi-colored version, and it will be in production for only a few months, ending in early 2011. In the mid-1940s, Charles and Ray Eames began designing toys and furniture for children, including molded plywood animals, colorful building blocks and whimsical masks. “We have to take pleasure seriously,” said Charles Eames, and the Hang-It-All (1953) is an example of this mantra.

    Yup, it is gorgeous and I’ve already found the perfect spot in my hall. Now all I need to do is find someone who stocks this in the UK…

    Have a great quiet Sunday.

    Wow I had no idea this existed! I still prefer the multi-coloured version though (can’t help it, I’m a Charles & Ray Eames nerd hahaha) but this is so good for people who still want the great design but not the loud colours 🙂

    “solid walnut balls”.

    really cool, and I want one, but I giggled in a very un-adult way.

    It is lovely! I saw a picture of this recently and now I am torn between it and the coloured version.

    I like it! I´m really starting to love walnut more and more..

  • Reply Stacey August 16, 2010 at 10:19 am

    I’ve always admired the coloured version of this. However, i can definitely appreciate this walnut option. If i were to choose, i would still opt for the colourful one. I am nuts for colour:-).

    LOVE. I have no idea where I’m going to put it, but I’m gonna need to buy this asap. Thanks for sharing!

    I never did love the multi-colored version, but I LOVE this. Now if only I had an extra $250 just hanging around…

  • Reply Tess August 16, 2010 at 10:42 am

    Me like!

    Gorgeous. I loved how they hung a row of three (of the multi-colored version) in a row in the catalog. Three of these in a row would be fabulous…expensive, but still fabulous.

  • Reply Asia August 16, 2010 at 10:51 am

    I must have this. I’ve decided that I can’t live without it.

  • Reply Amanda August 16, 2010 at 11:53 am

    I want this so bad. It’s just a wee bit out of my price range right now, though. So sad. So beautiful.

  • Reply Charlotte August 16, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    This is so beautiful. Why must beautiful things always be so expensive, why??

    I love that you tagged this post ‘greed’. I like this and find it to be much more sophisticated than multi version.

  • Reply PhillyLass August 17, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Oh, wow. It’s amazing!!!! If only I could justify the expense.

  • Reply Emma August 19, 2010 at 2:06 pm
