|meg farrels' hallway: design sponge|
There are two pieces of furniture in this picture. The wall mounted shelf with hooks creates usable hanging space for coats and bags. Functional and decorative items sit above at eye level.
Below, a bench is a place to set a bag down, or sit and remove boots. Footwear can be stored under the bench.
No expensive cabinetry is required. Just two simple pieces that transform a bare hallway, so it becomes a convenient and homey place to transition from indoors to outdoors.
