• The Columbus Washboard Company

    Laundry specialists since 1895, Columbus Washboard sells a small collection of what it calls “vintage laundry,” including the Sheila Maid Clothes Airer, a classic British space-saving tool for drying linens and clothing. With the help of a rope and pulley, the rack is propelled to the ceiling, where warm air gathers and laundry is promptly dried.

  • Rejuvenation

    Started in 1975 as an architectural salvage shop, Rejuvenation now offers upgrades for all over the home and is part of the Williams-Sonoma brand. We like its Amish clothes drying rack (but be warned—assembly is required) and its basket and bins department.
