As city dwellers, it’s important to incorporate elements of nature into our daily lives so we don’t become as stone-cold as the environment around us. That’s just one of the many reasons we love this Yosemite Coat Rack made from the mangosteen tree, which bears the exotic purple fruit found in Indonesia. And who wouldn’t want an enchanted forest greeting them at their front door?

The tree has been enchanting onlookers with its grandeur and beauty for centuries, and even inspired the creation of the national park system. Unfortunately, the trees only produce fruit for a number of years, and after that time, they’re burned down to make room for younger fruit-bearing plants. Now, a group of Thai artisans are reclaiming the fallen trunks and treating them through a process of sanding and staining to make these beautiful stands. Due to the fact that they’re made from different trees, each one is as unique as the tree itself and includes anywhere from 10-15 hooks.

The coat racks can be purchased for $400 on Uncommon Goods.
