10 Easy Pieces: Metal Clothing Racks

April 2, 2014

I have a great big closet in my apartment. It’s both a blessing and a curse for the same reason: a blessing to be able to stash things away in a pinch, and a curse to be able to stash things away in a pinch.

The dreaded closet clutter buildup requires tackling every few months, and because of this, I’ve been attracted to the idea of showcasing a well-edited wardrobe on a clothing rack instead. Clutter has nowhere to hide, it has to be addressed. As a counterpart to last week’s post on Wooden Clothing Racks, here’s our selection of industrial sets at a spectrum of price points.
