Summer in New England is hot and humid, and towels seem permanently damp, always on the verge of mildew. Some years ago I became obsessed with tracking down a vintage-style towel drying rack that would encourage my teenagers to hang their beach towels outside the back door. I embarked on an Internet search and was delighted to discover the Best Drying Rack’s Round Clothes Drying Rack, reminiscent of drying racks of yore (indeed, the design is based on a drying rack that owner Greg Baka found in an antiques store).
