Lately we've been admiring polished versions of the retractable wall hooks used on planes, trains, and boats. Here are three versions at three very different prices. Now if only our clothes, tools, and dishes would put themselves away when not in use. Above: This  Wall Panel with Coat Rack  by Austrian design firm Team 7 has integrated metal hooks that fold flush when not in use. It's available in six woods, including walnut shown here, and can be installed alone or with additional features such as mirrors, benches, and shoe cabinets. For pricing and purchasing information, contact  Wharfside in the UK and  Möbili Mobel  in the US. Above:  Knax Coat Rack , handmade in Denmark since 1995, is a made-to-last classic (its springs have been tested more than half a million times without breaking). Shown here in oiled walnut with aluminum hooks, Knax is available in 11 wood finishes, 12 painted colors, and three hook finishes—aluminum, black, and special-edition copper . Prices range from €93 for a two-hook rack to €246 for a 10-hook rack. In the US, a selection is available from CA Modern Home for $119 to $289.  Above: For a basic option, Ikea's  Bjärnum  hooks are made of aluminum and fold flat when not in use. They aren't spring-loaded, but at $9.99 for a pack of three, you might not mind manually closing them. Love hardware as much as we do?
