Object of Desire: A Hanging Laundry Rack from a New Zealand Maker

The George and Willy Laundry drying rack operates on a pulley: the rack can be raised to dry clothes amid the hot air. Ideal for small-space living.

Recently spotted from New Zealand makers George & Willy: a hanging drying rack that raises and lowers on a pulley system, creating an instant laundry room in the smallest of spaces. I’m adding it to my wish list for my compact New York apartment (so I can break my bad habit of draping wet laundry over chairs and windowsills). Here’s a look:
