A very happy Monday — I hope everyone is fully recovered from last night's big televised blackout/super-choreographed display of booty shakin-based narcissism/ somewhat stressful touch football game — and welcome to week five of "Hiber-Nation," a special series of posts featuring home accessories and other odds and ends geared to make housebound-in-the-winter life a touch more bearable.  

While the main focus of "Hiber-Nation" is on cozy-making home goods and snowed-in distractions — throw blankets, books, things to keep restless pets preoccupied, etc. — I figured that it's only proper to have somewhere to stash all those bulky winter coats, gloves, and scarves for when you do come in from the cold. Below you'll find 10 eye-catching coat racks and hooks ideal for keeping your winter gear and other household items in order. Most, but not all, are American made and/or crafted from recycled/recyclable/ sustainable materials. Most importantly, all will help keep your entryway decluttered so you can get your hibernation on without worrying about soggy mittens and scarves being strewn about the house.
