Handy or Creepy?

I've always thought this image from the long lost Domino was on the right side of cool for entry way hooks that are as stylish empty as they are full.

Recently I was in an equally awesome little housewares and gift shop there next to the door, ready to take my keys and bag was this handy version. Which is when I promptly decided that said store had surpassed me in coolness, because all I could think was "Creepy!" I scoured the web, but couldn't find and example of them used in a room, maybe there's a reason for that.

  1. Definitely beyond creepy, I much prefer an old fashioned oak coat rack

  2. I vote creepy. I'm not into stuff jutting out from the walls, be it a ceramic hand or a cardboard buck. However, I do like a wooden hand that sits on a table, unassuming and non-creepy-like.

  3. Love the antlers, but the hands bother me for some reason. All a matter of perception I suppose!

  4. Haha, I'm with you. The disembodied hand is way too freaky for my taste.
