  • Hooks: Provide handy additional hanging.
  • Message Centre: Pin notes and reminders for yourself or your family, accessible right at your front door.
  • Console: Doubles as a desk, and includes a drawer to store unsighlightly clutter.
  • Stools: Take a seat while putting your shoes on.
  • Shoe rack: Keep your shoe collection organized and attractive.
