Even for those of us who like to DIY, and custom build most solutions in our home ourselves, the clothesline is generally an off-the-shelf product purchased and installed in the yard, laundry room, or bathroom. But not so in this case:

This clothesline was actually designed by the home's architects, Marcus O'Reilly Architects, of Australia. Tension is kept in the line by the weight of a solid piece of wood suspended off of the end of the clotheslines, which are draped over a metal bar on a frame. We love that even this nitty gritty detail was designed. What do you think?
