Must-have: a coat rack
Never underestimate the organizing power of anything that will gladly accept your discards at the end of a long day. Remember the montage scene in "The Devil Wears Prada" in which Miranda hurls her coats and bags on the desk every morning? Well, that scene wouldn't work at all if there had been a lovely white or orange coat rack ($68 at urbanoutfitters.com). But this vintage-inspired dandy, made of sturdy iron, will make your home life a lot less cluttered.
