I have to say that I'm very happy with our new coat rack. I looked around for a long time. It needed a number of hooks and had to be very strong, as I knew Junior would try and horshoe toss his backpack onto it when I wasn't looking. . Also, it couldn't be too or the kids couldn't reach it. Now, coats and backpacks have a single place. Of course, it belongs in the currently very dark entry way, not the living room where it's pictured. Oh, and the design is great. Assembly, which is intuitive and fun (you can choose the order of hook sizes and colors) really makes one appreciate good design. The base is heavy and it doesn't wobble at all. Kudos to designers A Huldén/S Dahlman for this, probably the best $20 Ikea purchase I've made!
