Save space

No built-in benches or closets? No problem. Get the same function with a single piece of furniture. Complete with seating, cubbies, and hooks, these units can transform any wall near an entry into a full-blown mudroom. Bonus: Catch-all pieces with built-in mirrors, like this one, let you check your look before heading out the door.
