Let’s Put Together a Modern Entryway

Let’s play a little game. I want to know which hook or rack, mirror, and console table you like together, and then I’ll show you what I’d choose!

  1. * Eames Hang-it-All
  2. * Rolly Console Table
  3. Splash Coat Rack
  4. Cubix Mirror
  5. Round Mango Wood Mirror
  6. Stockholm Sofa Table
  7. Wallter Slat Rack
  8. B&W Wall Hook
  9. Peekaboo Console Table
  10. * Blackened Metal Mirror
  11. Strut Console Table

* I love numbers 1, 2, and 10 together. (I also like 6, 8, and 10 a lot.) What about you?

    love the rolly console table and have lusted after eames for decades. I actually was drawn to the vintage wood carved mirror from ‘related posts’… but that’s not really modern, is it? can’t wait to see the finished entryway.

    I’d love to have 2. My entryway into my apartment is really awkward because it’s narrow and there are three doors that come off of it immediately. Stuff just gets piled on the floor. I love that 2 is really short and narrow, so it would fit in the space. 11 is also cute, but I tend to lean towards wooden things :)

    I’d choose 1, 5, 6. I love the hooks and would hope the bright colors would encourage my kids to use them. I like the long narrow table (and really like strut table but that’s *too* much color for my space). The round mirror is just enough to see that I don’t have lipstick on my teeth, not so much that I get a view of myself hauling in groceries.

    This is fun, let’s play again!
