An entryway is one spot in your house that shouldn’t be left untouched, as it’s the first place anyone will see when they visit your home. Besides serving as an eye-catching spot for guests, it serves as a useful place to drop keys and mail when you’re rushing through the door.
If you’re not sure what to put in this narrow space, consider an easy formula, shown in our entryway inspiration board: a console table, paired with a lamp, a small seat, an oversize piece of art, and a little tray for catching odds and ends. That’s really all you need to finish your front entry.
This inspiration board began with the Balstrade Console Table, with its rustic wooden finish and dramatic turned wood legs. We chose several accessories that matched the distressed finish of the table–the mirrored tray–and some with finishes that contrasted it–the glossy, cream lamp. In a space that has fairly neutral colors, it’s important to combine varying textures to keep the vignette interesting.

The French Side Chair in Antique White has a very feminine silhouette, which complements the strong shape of the Balstrade Console Table. By pairing a chair that’s visually lighter than the console table, the two furniture pieces balance each other out.
