Very sturdy, it's hung in my room and holds my keys, robe, and a few belts. The fact that it doesn't come with screws didn't bother me, but that's most likely because we have an entire drawer dedicated to extra screws in the garage. I hung it up by myself using a laser level - best investment ever. The first time I screwed it in too low (I'm not very handy), turns out hooks should be hung at eye level.

Just got this in the mail and I'm very happy with it, but as other customers have said, it is very disappointing that the hardware is not included. I got the iron color and while finding screws to fit it is no problem (I got 2 flat phillips head screws for woodwork, 6X, 1 and 1/2 length, totaling 15 cents), no one has screws that match the color. I am going to try and darken the screws with a darkening solution.
Other than the screws, the key hook itself is great. It sits flat against the wall and has knobs on the end of each hook to keep things from accidentally falling off.

Key to the castle!
I adore this hook rack. I got the iron one and it looks more expensive than I expected. It's not cheap or cheesy looking at all. The only thing I would change would be to have the pegs angled up a little so my keys don't fall off when I grab keys from another hook. Everyone who sees this just falls in love with it. If you love fairy-tale style you will be head-over-heels for it! I want another one for necklaces...
Love these wall hooks. They are large, sturdy and beautiful.
I was disappointed that the hooks did not come with screws, but I simply popped over to my local hardware store and found antiqued brass screws in the decorative screw area. I also purchased wall anchors to ensure that the hooks could house heavier items with ease.
Overall, very happy with purchase and glad I found matching screws :)

I've only had my B&W hook up for a week, but really love it.When I went in the store they only had one left that was slightly cracked, but the employee found a couple more( in the back) for me to choose from. It looks great on my master bath door.I've been hanging my towels on it. Actually planning on buying a different style, from Anthropologie, for my other bathroom.

Admittedly I recently purchased two of these hooks only because they were in the sale section at one of my local stores. However, once I realised they were full price I decided to stick with my purchase and see how the hooks worked with my decor. They are great. My boyfriend even loved the design that I had to go purchase two more.
My wife shops at Anthro but I've always loved the aesthetic of the Anthropologie stores. I've been eying this piece for awhile and decided to finally buy it for my kitchen. I read the reviews most of which are in regards to how it doesn't mount to the wall properly. I suspected that it just wasn't being hung correctly... and I was right. Don't expect to hang this on a nail, yes it will swivel. I used a molly and phillips head screw. The screw head fits perfectly into the notch on the backside and is ridiculously snug--even with pressure the octopus does not move or swivel. Took me about two minutes to install--looks great! We use it for our aprons.

Perfect for jewelry
I bought this because I have a love for all things from the sea - my closet has a few different wall hangings for my jewelry and scarves and this fits in perfectly.
My husband hung it for me, and I don't have any problems with it shifting on the wall. I do wish that the arm hooks came out farther so that I could stack more, but that wasn't a deal breaker for me. I have bracelets on it now, but will probably switch over to necklaces instead.

VERY cool looking!
We are doing sort of a beach/sea theme in our master bath. I saw this hook while I was hunting for cabinet knobs. I decided it would be perfect for our bathroom, to hang our robes & towels on. It is VERY cool looking! It's cute enough for the girly side of our bathroom, as well as manly enough for my husband. If that makes sense?! It is expensive, but it's so unique I couldn't pass it up~
I bought this hook on a whim, since I needed a cheap product to round out my online order for a better shipping price. I thought a decorative hook would help be de-clutter my bedside table, since I have a bad tendency to just toss whatever jewellery I'm wearing onto it at the end of the day. I've now installed it above my bedside table and hang my bracelets and necklaces on it. It's a very large hook, feels substantial, and IT CAME WITH A SCREW! I fully expected it not to because of the other reviews, but it did! I am very, very satisfied.

Simple and Elegant
This hook fits perfectly in the space that I intended for it to go. I put it on a cabinet beside my kitchen sink and hang a pot holder and oven mitt on it. It is made of sturdy black metal, yet it is light enough to stick it to the wall with a command strip if you want to! (which is what I have done temporarily). Very handy! (but doesn't come with screws)

Beautiful & Classic
I'm in love with these. Ordered two as tie backs for my kitchen curtains - I just attached them to the wall sideways and tucked the fabric into the curve. SO cool looking, I'm ordering more right now. Not to mention, what an affordable price! The workmanship is excellent as well; very heavy and durable. I wouldn't change a thing about them!
I don't know why, but this hook makes me think of the 40's. That's probably not an accurate era, but something about the design of this hook takes me back to a time I never knew, but imagine often. The color of the aqua knobs are so lovely and the metal is nice and dark. It is smaller than I thought it would be, but I just didn't visualize the dimensions accurately (my fault). Regardless, it is a super cute and classy hook that dresses up the wall in a snap with an industrial vintage appeal.

Dish towel hook
Bought this when the off-white nubby ceramic hook was available. Attached it to the lower back inside corner of the kitchen cabinet near the ktchen sink. The hook is perfect for a dish towel to be hung over the top part of the brass; or you could use the inside "u" part. In the past, the handle on the over range held the dish towel; however, at one point the towel almost caught fire, so the towel is in a fire proof, more useful spot on a decorative hook.

Mom wants more!
My parents are building a new house, so I gave my Mom a pair of these in Linen for Christmas. They moved into the house this weekend, and she just called me to ask how she could get a few more for the mudroom! Glad to see they're still available.
The knobs are a lovely creamy white, which contrasts nicely with the rustic bronze-y metal. They're rustic, but not shabby.
I've had my eye on this for a few months but was hesitant because:
A. It seemed a expensive
B. I read the reviews about it arriving with broken hooks so they probably weren't going to last a long time.
I went to the local store to take a look at them up close and they are very nice. The wood varies with every rack. Overall, very nice weathered look. The construction is very simple and I was tempted to build it myself but after pricing the hooks individually through a local hardware store, it just wouldn't be worth the trouble. I finally took the plunge and bought it in the store and I LOVE it in my home. Exactly what I needed. If a hook breaks, its an easy fix.
Also, some people complained about it not having any hardware. There are two slots/holes in the back for you to hang it on two screws. You don't need much... 2 screws, a screwdriver and possibly 2 anchors if you're hanging it on drywall. Really simple.

GREAT Hook Rack! Holds up well!
I was a little worried about this hook rack because of a previous review but I couldn't find anything else that I liked. I knew I needed something extremely sturdy because my stuff is heavy. I figured if I didn't like it, I could return it... But I LOVE this hook rack!! It fits perfect on our wall and is VERY sturdy. We have coats, purses (large and heavy), laptop bags (with computer), scarves, keys, etc. ALL on this rack! It has held up VERY well! I am very very happy!!!

just what I had hoped!
I had my eye on this piece for a full year before deciding to splurge and purchase it. It is generously sized and very sturdy and the perfect design blend between simplicity and interest. I love that the hooks are not all the same type and yet it's a modest, subtle piece that is just as functional as it is beautiful. If you are very particular or prefer a modern look, keep in mind that this is a rough and rustic piece, so the wood is accordingly not all symmetrical, which I personally love. We use it for coats/tote bags/dog leash in our entryway and it has been the perfect solution! Definitely recommend.
I bought two of these for my closet. I've had for 1 1/2 years. I put robes, mens jeans with a belt, jackets, multiple clothes etc on the hooks. It has held up well. It didn't come with screws so had to get my own. I love because it is such an attractive hook. I'm going to buy another for my bathroom where I have my jewelry hanging. Will hang my thick necklaces off the hooks. The photo up close the inner section looks bent, but this is normal bend with the pull, the hook is intact and not bent.

Unique and Beautiful
I love this hook, I searched high and low for a pretty hook for my skin studio for clients to hang there coats, purses etc while they are are receiving a services. It is a beautiful design and a very sturdy hook. My only gripe is the hook did not come with mounting hardware, but to be expected for the low price. Happy shopping!

buy in the store
I ordered this online since I was placing an order anyway and it would save me a trip to the store. Thought this would be just perfect for near the front door to hold jacket and purse, but when I opened it's individual box (all other items were packed well) it fell apart. The bottom support (under the last hook) is held on with a screw. This was loose, but can't be tighted without creating a big bend and stressing out the joint. Will have to take it back to the store for a replacement. You may want do the same if you're thinking about purchasing--other than the problem--it's still a lovely and useful item.
