Q: I have been looking at pictures as part of a face lift for my entryway — and have been struck by the idea of a table that can shelter 2 stools as an option for kiddums coming in and needing to take off boots, etc. I attached some pics that I found inspiring.I'm looking for ideas on tables and stools that would work like this. Stools have to be light so a preschooler can pull it out when needed. The walls are Manchester Tan and nearby areas are Sweet Daphne green, and a light blue/gray. Any wood tones would work, and a little color in the stools would be welcome, too!

Editor: IKEA and CB2 would be a great place to look for this kind of combination. The table with the green background is IKEA's Stockholm Sofa Table in black (a steal for $199) and the 4th image is from CB2. I've seen their Fresca Console ($249) combined with the Fresca Coffee Table/Bench ($249) for an equally attractive pairing — perfect for an entryway, and little ones can use the low bench to take off boots and shoes.
Does anyone else have suggestions for AJ?
