Salvaged-Column Coat Tree

Columns are a bedrock of traditional architecture, and most American columns found from the past century or so are made of wood. For this reuse project, a single column is fitted with shapely brass hooks and stood up on a new plinth base to create a six-foot-tall coat tree. The fluted shaft and the egg-and-dart molding on the capital will add a touch of formality to even the casual entryway.
