Looking to make an eco statement in your entry closet? Why not try these super-chic clothes and coat hangers made out of recycled chair backs. Designed by Antonello Fusè, the Abitudini series of recycled chair hangers, takes playful old chairs and transforms them into sturdy hangers that look so good that you’ll hate to close your closet door.

Antonello Fusè takes old chairs, cuts them down to size, and then inserts a metal hook — voilá, you have a hangar. These would be perfect for heavier articles of clothes like coats, and the hangar with horizontal bars would be good for pants or scarves.

The hangars are currently on sale at Resign for 10€ to 15€ each, and if you’re interested simply email info@resign.it to find out how to buy. If you’re really crafty though, you’ll be hitting the garage sales this weekend for old chairs that would serve a splendid new life as a hangar.

    hmmm, interesting concept, i’ll give it that, but besides wondering about the left over scraps, these will just mis-shapen all your clothes, and you’ll now be stuck steaming or ironing them. not to mention how much heavy & wider they are than regular hangers, and take up way more space. collectively a bunch of them would also weight down a clothes pole of any sort, shy of a steel or copper pipe or something. totally impractical.

    I think they are great! Agreed – on the antique chairs can be gorgeous in their own right, but there are a lot of not so great not antique chairs that seem to have been made into some fab coat hangers! Great idea.

    Is it really that ‘eco’ ? What happens to the rest of the chair? Understandable if the chair-back is the only remaining functional part. Otherwise it’s a bit of a sharkfin soup
