Architecture of the Imagination

"It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle.  The door opened on to a tube-shaped hall like a tunnel ... with lots of pegs for hats and coats ...."

From The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

"Lucy thought she'd never been in a nicer place.  It was a little, dry, clean cave of reddish stone with a carpet on the floor and two little chairs ... and a table and a dresser and a mantlepiece over the fire and above that a picture of an old Faun with a grey beard."

From The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis

Although we have don't live in a Hobbit home or near a faun, we do use lots of pegboards in our own house for hanging coats, umbrellas, hats, and herbs.
