Nothing makes me smile more than a dusty old item repurposed with an inventive new use. That said, I just must get my hands on a vintage railway luggage rack to use for storage in my home. Ideally I'd love to use one in my front entryway to set my purse on and hang my umbrella from. But I do also love the idea of using them in the kitchen for pots, pans, and tools. They'd also be great in the bathroom to use as a towel rack. British retailer Trainspotter has created a true-to-form reproduction of racks salvaged from UK trains, after selling out of a large quantity of the originals. UK shop The French House also sells a coat rack inspired by those seen in old train carriages. And, Pottery Barn has four different train racks for sale, but they seem more simply just inspired by train racks and fairly different from the originals. I won't settle though; I want the real thing!
