Our entryway is currently a disaster. This is it 'cleaned up'. Normally it is completely overflowing with backpacks, jackets, shoes and...stuff. I'm on a mission to put something together that feels nice when you walk in. This feels not so nice. I bought the MOlger Benches from Ikea thinking I could do something like this image:
Don't know if you can tell, but it isn't working at all like that.
Then I bought a bunch of hooks thinking I could just add a clean row of hooks above the benches, but I'm not so sure anymore. So before I go running around town trying to find anything else, I'm taking a step back and considering what some 'ideal' options would be so that I have more of a vision for the space.
For one thing I think I completely overlooked the importance of hiding half the stuff in some kind of credenza. I haven't moved by Torsby Credenza from my place yet, but it might be the perfect solution: white, simple, clean:
If it was something like that, then there's the possibility of a little display area for a piece of art, a plant, a bowl for keys. Oh and the mail:
I also love the Eames hooks. Don't know if they'd really fit anywhere, but they are great. All these images are from apartment therapy except for the poster which you can buy at Supermarket.
Then maybe if there's enough space left over once the Torsby or some other credenza is in place then I could add this coatrack for the backpacks, etc.
As for the poor Molger benches, I was thinking they could move outside to hold plants on the balcony...
