Clothesline "Sculpture" - I can envision putting this at the end of the deck. For evening outdoor gatherings when not in use, put up strings of lights and food/drink table underneath. Or a nice canopy with climbing roses, clematis or other vine flowers.
This classic pulley design is functional, rustic, and lifts your drying laundry out of sight until ready to be put away. Great for small laundry rooms. I would coat the wood so it can't mildew, which is what wood tends to do from damp laundry.
