I hadn’t known the original one and when I first saw the walnut edition, I was thinking, “this is looking a bit odd.”
But this being an Eames design, I decided to take another look at the colourful one. Oh, and it’s jolly and good fun and pretty too, all at the same time, and I really liked it. So then I stumbled upon the walnut one again and it’s even better! Taking that silly design and making it walnut, the most unsmiling of all woods… it’s hilarious!
If I had 250 bucks to spend on a coat hanger, I’d sooooooo buy this one. Even if you only get it, if you know the colourful one :p
