A custom entry bench in treated fabric gave the perfect anchor to the living room wall. A Benjamin Moore paint color was matched to the pillow accent color. Sconces were hung only after the bench was delivered and set exactly to place.

This blue entry hall features a lovely pairing of rustic and elegant design. A sisal-style hall rug protects strand-carbonized bamboo flooring from heavy foot traffic, while built-in bench seating is made more useful with underneath storage.
A vintage wooden bankers bench and a fun wood circular hooks gives a warm welcome in this entryway. For a whimsical touch, the wainscot was painted with a contrast painted liner and was carried through on the doors. A durable Chilewich mat added protection to the floors but also added cheerful color to the floor. As a final touch, artwork was framed above the bench to elevate the sophistication of the entry.
The home's entry flows into the formal living room, so designers went with a simple design to give the space an open, airy and uncluttered feel. A simple, modern bench with muted colored pillows, soft colored artwork and a gray rug define the space and usher guests into the home's living room.
Make a warm and welcoming statement near your entry with a classically styled garden bench. In addition to offering guests a spot to pause and take off their shoes, these also help tremendously for extra seating during formal or casual outdoor meals since the benches can easily pull up to one side of a table.
As you step inside the mudroom, a cushioned bench awaits you to sit down and take off your shoes. Hooks provide a place to hang hats, scarves and coats, and woven baskets offer an additional storage option above the bench.
The entry's custom white built-in bench includes gray velvet pillows and custom pillows in a paisley print. An open storage area below has space for storing boots and shoes, with green baskets for grab-and-go items to pick up before heading out the door.
A lime-green bench provides additional storage and a place to put your shoes on before leaving the home. Black and white wallpaper surrounds the space with texture, adding visual interest and contrast against the clean white millwork.
