We’ve all got that chair posted by the entry or bedroom, readily prepared to be buried under a day’s worth of clothing, handbags, groceries, and more. And while it may be tempting to double a seat as an alternate source for storage, we thought of a few clever and stylish options you might want to swap in instead. See for yourself!

the coat and shoe rack

This sturdy rack, that holds everything from shoes and handbags to jackets and scarves, makes for the ultimate storage staple. Lean the piece near the entry and style the look with a globally-inspired floor piece, and fresh green accents for a much-needed natural touch.

the basket

For the charming reading nook, often buried under a pile of sweaters and throws, a woven basket lends a cozy touch while doubling as a handy catch-all.
