Luo Yaocan, the designer, believes that the aesthetic of Chinese character can be brought to life through Resting Coat Rack. According to traditional Chinese art philosophy, calligraphy and painting have the same origin, the same philosophy can be applied to calligraphy and furniture. Traditional Chinese furniture design is rich in symbols and patterns, even though it’s only superficial.

It’s not just a furniture that stands at the corner of your house, Resting Coat Rack provides a meaningful oriental-inspired artistry in your home. It is both beautiful and functional.
