Storage Trunk

Even a steadfast elephant can be coaxed to hang out and hold coats, bags, and off-season safari gear. And when its trunk isn't on hook duty, it's an endearing work of wall art all by itself. Handmade from solid walnut by pachyderm-loving craftsman Alex Ahrens, it's finished with a naturally protective blend of oils and waxes, and includes easy-to-use wall anchors. Alex finds inspiration in the remarkable natural designs of animals and his elephant makes a charming alternative to standard coat hooks for mud rooms, closets, and wild playroom decor. Handmade in Austin, Texas.

“Horns and antlers, long necks and long bodies…trunks that reach the ground–the uniqueness of animals has always interested me.”

It may seem like a long way from aerospace engineering to creating animal-inspired designs, but Alex Ahrens finds common ground in precision and attention to detail. His high-tech training gave him an eye for spotting flaws—useful when creating products that people will interact with. Further time spent as a product and packaging designer gave him an appreciation for practical, well-designed objects that are attractive as well as user-friendly. "The uniqueness of animals has always interested me,” Alex observes. "Finding ways to blend functionality with their unique features inspires a lot of my work."

    I plan to give all three as gifts. I have given one to a new born baby. It can be used in his room or the entryway to hang his jacket backpack etc.

      The elephant is very sturdy and well-made (not to mention adorable!) It came with instructions and wall-mounting hardware. Everyone who has seen it in our bathroom loves it!
