I've gone back and forth on this issue and I have decided that I like the look of both. I love an entry that has a big pretty antique chest to greet you. But I've also been loving the look of a console... espeically with a bench or basket layered underneath. That little bit of detail adds so much. And while there are some great looking entries that have a bench.... I personally want somewhere to put a pretty lamp!
*I've traced this back to Cote de Texas but that's as far as I've found it. Anyone know original source? I'd love to know who designed this space!
Do you prefer one look over the other? What do you have in your home? I'd love to know!
