The first thing we do when we open our apartment door is drop our belongings off at their proper homes. Our living room doesn't have an entryway or landing strip but if we had the space, we'd definitely create a cozy one like this... more views after the jump.
In our friend's apartment, their is no separate dining room or living room--it's all one large space. It was essential for them to use furniture to create distinct zones.
We love how they took a vintage side table and positioned it perpendicular to the entry wall of the apartment to create a cozy spot to plop mail among other items.
In addition, by placing the table perpendicular they're exposing this particular table's backside. Because the table's back is made of open wire you're able to see the contents of books and objects from both sides of the room. To make the look complete, they added a vintage swing arm lamp and an accent mirror to make the space stand out on its own. Related Entryway Posts
