10 Easy Pieces: All-in-One Entryway Stations

A well-thought-out entryway will change your life. Imagine your keys always in the same place—along with your wallet, glasses, and jacket. Mail and newspapers sorted into drawers, bins, or baskets. Loose change in a nice little dish. Scarves and hats and backpacks have a designated place (that isn’t on the floor or sofa).

The best way to achieve this type of homey harmony? A one-stop entryway station in the form of a freestanding or wall-mounted rack designed with systems in mind. Here are our picks.

Anthropologie Iron Entryway Shelf Set

Stattmann Neue Moebel Unit by Marina Bautier
Above: If you’re familiar with our book, Remodelista: The Organized Home, you might recognize this unit from our Entryway chapter. It’s the Unit by Marina Bautier for Stattmann Neue Moebel, a solid wood system of modular storage solutions (shown here with a single shelf, row of hooks, and drawer below) to configure to your liking. Contact Stattmann Neue Moebel for price and shipping information.
Ikea Pinnig Coat Rack
Above: The Pinnig Coat Rack with Shoe Bench from Ikea is made of black powder-coated steel and has two rows of hooks to hang hats, jackets, baskets, a hanging mirror—or to keep a rolled-up yoga mat tucked behind the top tier of hooks; $89.
Vitsoe 606 Universal Shelving System
Above: Designed by Dieter Rams, the Vitsoe 606 Universal Shelving System is unchanged since 1960—it’s that enduring. The system is designed for use all over the house and is something to build upon from one small unit to a larger bookshelf. We like the use of a small section with a couple drawers for the entryway. Prices start at $576 at Vitsoe. For more, see The World’s Greenest and Most Economical Shelving System?
