Wow Visitors with Entryway Furniture that Makes an Impact

Wow Visitors with Entryway Furniture that Makes an Impact
Your entryway creates the first impression of your home. For many people that knock on your door, it may be the only part of your home they get to see. It needs to leave an impression of what’s to come once they venture into your private space. Here are a few ideas to “wow” guests who set foot in your door.
  • Play with Scale

    Try pairing large and oversized art with a table that fits the space. It always sets a chic tone. Investing in the perfect statement piece pulls together a dramatic entryway that leaves a lasting impression. The Midland Sofa Table would look great with an oversized painting hanging above it. The table is narrow and stylish and would allow the artwork to be the star of the entryway.

  • Textures Count

    You can create an expectation of the décor to come with a mix of textures in the entryway. Consider a dramatic faux fur rug paired with an understated table. If your rug makes enough of a statement, consider a smaller table or hooks to hang coats.

  • A Sitting Place

    Not all entryways have to feature a table. Many can accommodate a quaint place to sit. A small accent chair with a chic round table looks welcoming and functional. Add a lamp and a small picture frame or two, and it can also serve as a nice reading area to watch the world go by from your front door.

  • Functional

    The perfect entryway isn’t just a place to “walk in”. It’s also a place to store coats, shoes, umbrellas and more. It can be a mudroom as well as a beautiful glimpse into your home. The Kennedy Storage Bench is the perfect piece for any entryway. Pair it with a wall of paintings or family pictures for a cozy feel, or you can opt for something like the Nero Hall Tree. It features hooks for coats, a drawer or keys and mail, and shelves for shoes. It’s also minimal enough to accommodate a small accent chair and statement rug.

  • A Long Walk

    If you have a spacious entryway, consider a full treatment of design. Go bold with your lighting, make your art pop, and add multiple pieces of furniture. A large entryway can shine with a seating area for two using understated accent chairs and a small table. Think about topping off the look with a bench. If the space you are working with seems oversized, make sure you make it feel cozy with lamps, rugs, and personal touches.

Consider the rest of your home when decorating your entryway. If your home is more traditional, stick to that theme. Don’t have a contemporary entryway flowing into a traditional living room. It’s all about setting the tone of your home for your guests.
