@maryfergusc I've always loved a laundry chute myself! I believe you don't see them so much anymore because of fire codes. Some places don't allow them at all. Others do, but with strict design codes to prevent them from becoming channels for fire to spread from one floor to the next. I wonder if the same is true of dumbwaiters? Ever since my first trip to Monticello as a kid, I've wanted a dumbwaiter!

All these feel too showroomy and not very practical for me. I would be worried to damage the nice furniture should some water or washing liquid drop on it. Also the choice of materials: how can hangers made of wood be practical for wet clothes? They sure look nice, but may not age well
