Entryways welcome us home and see us out. With each being unique in size and desired functionality, we thought we'd round up a few of our favorite pieces to give your space - whatever size it may be - organizational peace of mind and be a joy to come home to.
1. First things first: Doormats
Whether you place it inside or out, these tufted vinyl mats by Chilewich are as hard working as they are good looking. Their extra thin profile makes it perfect for any under-door space and its mold-and-chlorine resistant material is backed by a solid non-slip vinyl bottom. Available in a variety of colors, patterns, and three sizes (inquire for custom lengths!).
2. Setting your keys down
Typically the first thing we unload and the last thing we pick up before heading out the door; make it easy to store your keys in something that's both functional and visually appealing.
Wall Shelf by MostModest that also has plenty of space for a phone, wallet, and mail. Have fun selecting one of five colors.
Standing Bowl by Fort Standard - a sculptural beauty that will make it a breeze to scoop out keys or loose change.
Linen Resin Trays by Fog Linen in three sizes for corralling mail and small things from your day.
3. Hanging your bags, coats, scarves ...
A place to hang your hat means a place to call home. We love these wall hooks for their simple and friendly designs that make a statement on any wall.
Carmen Hook in solid white ash wood by Most Modest. Great solo or grouped together, this hook is small but mighty.
Curve Hook by Normann Copenhagen. The scale of this design makes all the difference if you want simple function with high visual impact.
Corkscrew Wall Hook by ThisThat. Talk about multi-functional with a side of fun - this wide and continuous wall hook can hold and carry items of all shapes and sizes.
4. Things on (or rather off) the floor
Everything else you haul in and out deserves a proper resting spot, too. Not only does containing your stuff give organizational pleasure, but also provides visual ease.
We love a good stool that can function as an occasional table, too. This sturdy Stir Stool by Kroft Studio welcomes you to sit and take your shoes off, or unload extra bags or mail onto its surface. Available in a multiple colors.
A minimalist umbrella holder by Umbra highlights the beauty of simple lines while allowing your umbrellas to breath, dry, and show off a little.
More than just a recycling bin, RE.BIN can store anything you need it to, and do it discreetly.
Upgrade your college dorm room milk crates with these from WAAM Industries. Like our recycled plastic friend above, the storage possibilities for this plywood design are many.
5. The Last Look
A wall mirror in the entryway is always a good idea. Not only can it help create a sense of space (visual appeal and/or the feeling of more space) but it gives us that "last look" as we head out for the day. Shop from two styles by Umbra: the Mira Mirror with natural wood and the Hub Mirror with matte black rubber.
6. The last note
To-do lists, schedules, or just little love notes - you cant go wrong with a Daily Roller in one of your most used spaces. Available in black and white with paper roll refills.
7. If anything else...
... bring life and color via natural greenery. We particularly love these high plant boxes that offer dual function as a storage unit. Find your perfect color and say "welcome home".Continue reading
