Check out this compact storage solution by the Paris based furniture maker, The Hansen Family. The Trunk is able to fold away completely. We think it could work well in a guestroom or entryway.
These handcrafted ateliers, designed by Gesa Hansen, include a hat tree, flip-up mirror, cubby holes for shoes or papers, two drawers, and two large shelves for additional storage. They are made from solid oak and measure 27.5″ x 55.1″ x 27.5″. It will be on exhibit at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair this May in New York.
