Coat Stand

On wet and miserable mornings you can’t get to work without bringing a jacket or umbrella with you. The problem with this is that you end up with a wet jacket or umbrella and no place to hang them to dry. Hanging them on the back of your chair is a definite no-no as your chair ends up getting drenched too. The best solution is to have a coat and umbrella stand where everyone can store their outer garments - winter or summer time.

We Recommend…

Keep the office free from clutter with a place to store coats, hats, bags and umbrellas with our versatile and stylish coat and umbrella stands. A good coat stand helps keep things organised for the whole office (plus visitors) and ideally keeps umbrellas and other essentials out of the way too, with plenty of hooks, at a range of heights and at different sizes, meaning there is a coat and umbrella stand for everyone and everything.
