eco art: upcycled scrap wood coat rack


Is it a piece of art, a functional piece of home decor…or both? Artist Megan Toro creates her wood sculptures and functional art from upcycled wood scraps. Pieces of wood are cut into random depths and widths then attached to a piece of solid wood. This design is a mini version of her large-form signature Lines design, and includes stained, natural and distressed white wood pieces.

Four metal hooks are attached to the hand-distressed blocks of wood. Great for hanging  jackets, umbrellas, a dog’s leash, or a couple towels.

Made to order. $140 @ the moderntextures Etsy shop
