The focal point of this foyer is the antique English dresser that has been transformed into an elegant statement piece for this space.

This unique piece lets the family's values be known to all who enter.
When designers find furniture for cheap, they don't let the existing finish keep them from using it in a room. Designer Julie Montgomery of Julie Montgomery Interiors found the side tables on casters at a thrift store.
