Chris, your guess came the closest in answering yesterday’s “What the…?” I could definitely use one of these Francisco Gomez Paz designed Omero racks to help me organize my overflowing pile magazines that will soon include the premiere issue of HGTV Magazine that’s hitting newsstands on October 4th. (BTW, you can click here to start your subscription to HGTV Magazine.)

This ultra modern piece looks like it might fly out of the screen into outer space. But I’ll give you a hint, it’s not big enough to make a crop circle.

Man, you all are good! I figured that either major fans of Ocean Spray cranberry juice or New Englanders would nail yesterday’s “What the…?” MizzyD guessed correctly first. R. Barth added, “My mom was from New England, and we grew up with one in our home as a memory of her childhood.”

HGTV design blog - What the...? - Coat Rack
Melissa, you are the champ! While they look like punching bags for toddlers, they actually serve as a playful way to hang a coat or “scarves, belts and ties.” Eno Studio designer Donata Paruccini‘s Clothes/Coat Hanger is perfect for a bachelor pad or kids’ playroom. I think the all-white set would look cool in feature blogger Erin Loechner’s master bathroom. What do you think?

Remember those Calgon commercials from the ’70s and ’80s with their promises of a “luxurious world” to help you escape from the stresses of everyday life? Well, this week’s object won’t draw you a bubble bath, but it will help your skin stay soft. Sold in black or white, it performs four — that’s right — four pleasing functions when inserted into its base and attached to your iPod, CD player or computer. (Talk about a hint; that gives away one of the four.)

While there’s no nod to the ’80s in the design of this object, it’s totally tubular, man. Well, wait, I’m sure many of us wore neon orange outfits in the ’80s. But bright orange isn’t the only color this comes in.
