Just hangin': Quirky handles, hangers and hooks

My parents have completed a massive rebuild of their house and there are still lots of things to finish, but perhaps one of the most surprisingly urgent tasks is to find hangers to put up here, there and everywhere.

Hangers are one of those things in the house that you don't really notice, unless they're suddenly absent.  Then where do you put that dressing gown or towel? (Luckily for me, Waffles the cat is happy to look after these things for me!)

Not normally the most exciting of interior design decisions, there are some interesting hangers out there:

RAKE 'EM IN: The Harvest Rake Hanger (currently €20 down from €28) from deadly Irish store Designist. The re-appriorated rake is polished and powdered for a sleek finish.
FIRE EXIT: Saw the Bang Bang door handle by Nikita Kovalev featured on earlier this week.  It is based on the 9mm Makarov semi-automatic pistol, weapon of choice for the Soviet and post-Soviet armed forces and law enforcement from 1951 to today. I don't where it can be purchased and for how much.
CAPS LOCK: Vintage style alphabet letter hooks (approx €11.50 per hook plus delivery) from Not on the High Street

UNLOCK YOUR FUNK WITH THIS TRUNK: This Elephant Screw-in Handle is approx €11.70 plus delivery from Etsy shop Fluolido
EVERY COAT OF PAINT: Designed in 1953, the Hang It All Coat Hook by Ray Eames is a design classic.  Manufactured by licence-holders Vitra, it costs approx €185 in a 20 per cent off sale at
KILLER HOOK: The Ninja Coat Hook is by Spinning Hat and is available from for approx €9.43 plus delivery
