Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
We are, admittedly, obsessed with storage hooks; a recent post over at Martha Stewart reminded us of one very useful type: swing hooks. Stewart's new utility room features Sugatsune swing hooks, which can fold flat when not in use. Founded in Japan in the 1930s, Sugatsune produces hard-wearing classic hooks in polished stainless steel. Here is a range of good options.
