Welcome to week two of "Hiber-Nation," a new series of posts featuring home accessories and other odds-and-ends that will help make housebound-in-the-winter life a bit more enjoyable. And not be the bearer of bad news or anything but it’s shaping up to be a season that will find many folks loafing around the house for extended periods of time with some forecasters are predicting that this January could be the coldest that the U.S. has experienced in 25 years while in the U.K., the month of December was the coldest in 100 years. Super.

While the primary focus of "Hiber-Nation" is on cozy-making home goods and snowed-in distractions, 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 a handful of coat racks and hooks ideal for keeping your winter gear and other household items in order. Some but not all are made from eco-friendly materials and 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.
