FOYER FURNITURE - entry unit

Over the last week I have been building a piece of furniture meant to use in a foyer.
I thought I would look up the official definition of FOYER for you and share it:

A foyer in a house is usually a small entry area or room by the front door. Other public rooms such as the living room, dining room, and family room typically attach to it, along with any main stairway. It was initially intended as an "airlock", separating the fireplace-heated rooms from the (colder, in winter) front entrance, where cold air infiltration made for cold drafts and low temperatures. It is commonly used for outer garment and umbrella storage for both residents and guests.

The piece I built meets these needs perfectly and I'm eager to share it with you.

It has fancy hooks, knobs, and posts to hang your items from.

It has hidden storage and open shelves.

It also has a great mirror and big surface for catching your shopping bags
or displaying things you love, like those flowers being given to you in mid February.

HERE you can see some of the parts that made this piece come together.

  1. nicely done! i love the cubbies and cabinet!

  2. The "Foyer" piece turned out wonderful, but you got it right when you said George is the best thing in your house (not sure about calling him old though!)


  3. That is one really cool piece of furniture! I love the chunky solid feel. But it's soft and pretty at the same time! Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. OOO la la, I LOVE! This has your signature look all over it. I would have said this was a Kristy creation, even if I hadn't known you had done it. It is just gorgeous, and I am a sucker for any piece of furniture that has used parts from other pieces of furniture to come together as a whole. Can't wait to see what you used. Great work. -K

  5. Your hall tree (as I would call it) is fabulous. So functional. I would love to have a foyer large enough to accommodate such a piece.
