Meet Our New Line: Hangups & Baggage!

Afternoon, ladies and gents! It’s an exciting afternoon here at E&B. Why? We’ve added a grand spankin’ new line to our repertoire, and we’re all stoked as can be to introduce all of you to it! So without further ado, may I present: HANGUPS & BAGGAGE!

Pretty, right?

Earlier this year at the New York International Gift Show, we had the distinct pleasure of meeting Philly-based artist Kim Kamens, who’s launched a stunning line of fabulous pieces designed to solve not one, but two problems that everyone could always use a little help with. First, just about everyone’s home has at least one blank wall that could use something unreasonably pretty on it. No shame. It’s valuable real estate and sometimes it’s tough to find that perfect piece. Second… admit it. We could all stand to be a little more organized in general, right? Well, marvel, good folks, as two birds meet one stone! This exciting line of original wall-mounted designs not only look gorgeous, but will replace all of your traditional coat racks, hat racks, mail holders and key hooks with one smart, durable piece. These wall mounts aren’t just sleek, modern and fun, they’re incredibly functional and easy to hang. Magnets, you guys! Who doesn’t love magnets?

There are a number of designs to choose from. For instance, the WALLPAPER is inspired by a vintage wallpaper pattern that seamlessly combines modern simplicity with antique motifs, making it an easy fit into just about any design scheme. But don’t let the pretty design fool you! This is one tough, dependable piece. Made from powder-coated steel, the large 36″ x 36″ size (shown below) is known as the “workhorse,” since it’s designed to hold everything from heavy jackets to scarves to handbags, mail and keys. And I’m sure that’s not even everything. Feel free to get creative!



Meanwhile, the KOI is a perfect marriage of form and function. The fluid lines and dramatic, expressive movement make it an arresting piece of artwork. But, again, don’t let the pretty design fool you! It’s also a strong, durable and incredibly useful piece of artwork. The spaces between the scales are perfect for organizing mail, displaying photographs, and hanging anything from handbags to scarves to jewelry. Made from tough powder-coated steel as well, this large 48″ x 24″ piece (shown below) makes a bold statement, while helping you keep your space neat, tidy and organized, especially if you share your space with other folks. Once it’s yours, I suspect you’ll wonder what you ever did without it!
