Wordless Wednesday - Help Me!


OK, there will be pics but I won't be wordless and you must not be wordless either! I need help picking out a piece of furniture for my new house in VA. It really bugs me that the door into the house from the garage opens right into the main hallway. So, I must buy a piece of furniture to make me feel better about this stupid design flaw. The hallway starts at the front door, passes this door from the garage and ends up between the open kitchen and family room. Got it?

So, I want a piece of furniture that I can drop my purse, keys, mail, bills and shoes on/in upon entering the house from the garage. Please check out these pics and tell me in Comments what you like best. My furniture is traditional - simple, clean lines, no country, no contemporary. All suggestions welcome!

Picture below in BLACK.

P.S. A big PRIZE to anyone who correctly names what store these pieces are from. OK, not a BIG prize, just a shameless mention in my blog with a link to yours. Sorry, that's all I got.

I like the last one best because of its simplicity. I would have guessed World Market... I haven't been to the Pottery Barn b4. I like the baskets! :)

I like the last one! Much more use with all the baskets, drawers and top space. You can always hang your own picture/mirror whatever above it. My WW is up.

Pottery Barn? I was thinking that, too. Or Yankee Sturbridge, I don't know.

I like the first and last ones best. First one because of the warm, comforting place to sit, still with room to put hats, gloves, et. The last because it looks like an amazing, stunning catch-all. Love it!

I like the first one the best! Second choice would be the last one!

I like the third one, you can double check yourself in that great mirror before leaving for the day.

I like the first one because it has many, many uses... including being able to have a seat while you remove muddy shoes. Lots of nooks and crannies. Yup, I like it. :)

Absolutely Pottery Barn. I have the catalog memorized!

I like the first picture, but where are putting the mail? If you stick it in the basket will you forget it? And how much room do you really want to take up?

My vote is the second to last. Not very big, you can sit on it to take off/put on your shoes. You can stash your shoes in the cabinet, hang your coat and check your look in the mirror before you leave. Plus you can put a small basket on it for keys and mail.

I have no idea about Pottery Bard like everyone seems to come to the same conclusion...

I *love* the first one, especially since it doubles as a seat, and was guessing Pottery Barn, but I don't really have a clue!

The first one would be my choice. It will also be a very practical place to put Samson's lead, some treats for him and the cats. A nice pet friendly greeting area, for when you get home.

First off it's Pottery Barn and that was far to simple lol.

I like the last one. It's clean and simple. Although I do like the idea of the second one but the chair might crowd things.

Love the new template. :0)
