Interior designer Suzanne Shaker and art conservator Pete Danridge designed their outdoor clothes line using two strips of cedar that are joined at the top with a stainless steel dowel pin. The clothes line, as Shaker says, “is the essence of simple function.”

Above: To build your own similar clothes line, consider the following: a 10-Foot-Long Western Red Cedar (above left) is $18.97 at Home Depot; a 1-inch Stainless Steel Dowel Pin (above middle) is $15.48 from Amazon; and a 25 ft. bundle of White Rope (above right) is $3.99 from Amazon.
Above: The idea was based on a childhood memory: a vision of white sheets blowing in the country wind. To see more of the couple’s Shelter Island home, check out Remodelista’s post House Call: Suzanne Shaker in Shelter Island.
