Battleship is a sturdy coat hook with a distinctive industrial appearance. Developed by English designer David Cathro of aCathroDESIGN, this modern and sleek functional piece is made from laser cut steel with a high quality semi-gloss powder coated finish. According to the designer, the aim of the project is to impart a modern industrial feel to the room, while still exuding a cozy feel.
Here is more from the official description of the project we received: “The hook is shown in a newly refurbished private residential interior. The owners wanted a fresh approach to the interior scheme and chose to start with the kitchen first. The Battleship hooks were chosen due to their clean industrial lines and powder coated steel finish which allows them to stand up to the rigors of a daily kitchen environment“. Battleship is available in two colors (white and grey), making this creative hook design easily adaptable to a variety of modern interiors.

And one of my all-time favorite shelf styling tricks is to display plants on the top layer of shelving, which will draw the eye upward, as well as create height and drama. Below we see shelf-top plants in a tour of my retro-modern home office. Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on the challenging task of styling kids’ room shelving, drawing inspiration from the product photography of The Land of Nod. The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.
