5 WAYS TO CREATE A WELCOMING HALLWAY FOR AUTUMN
Create a cosy hallway for your home with key storage pieces from Indigo Furniture this season.
WARMTH AND FUNCTIONALITY
Create a cosy hallway for your home with key storage pieces from Indigo Furniture this season. We can’t change the Great British weather, but coming home to a hallway filled with warmth and functionality makes all the difference. Whether you’re dusting off autumn leaves or towelling down your pooch, follow our tips to feel relaxed the moment you step inside.
DECLUTTER YOUR AUTUMN CLOTHING
Make gearing up for outdoor adventures a pleasure by keeping all your outerwear together in one place. The Plank Hallway Storage Stand is a streamlined solution for storing heavy winter coats and accessories, handcrafted in solid plank timbers. Its four hand-cast swivel hooks with three prongs each are ideal for hanging coats, hats and scarves. There are also two generously deep drawers and a spacious cupboard for all your outdoor essentials.
Our range of Cubbyhole Storage Units make a perfect home for wellies, while umbrellas can be tidied away inside a rustic Mill Basket. If you’ve got little ones, create a game of putting their wellies to bed after a rainy day outside. With an organised hallway giving easy access to all your winter essentials, you’ll have more time to enjoy the season stress-free.
AVOID BEING A WELLY DANCER
We’ve all pulled some awkward moves while taking our shoes off standing up. A dedicated seat is a welcoming sight after a long day and makes a wonderful addition to your hallway. Take off your boots gracefully with the Miller’s Plank Pew – a delightfully sturdy piece crafted from solid Canadian pine. Or add a warm touch of tactile leather with the classic Leather Bench; its solid frame and comfortable upholstered cushion look so inviting.
PAMPER YOUR CANINE COMPANION
Your best friend will be having a blast rolling around in all those autumn leaves. Create a special spot to sit and towel him off before he returns to his favourite spot inside. A compact, easy-to-move option like The Vintage Leather Footstool is ideal for just bringing over after walkies. Durability is extra important in wet seasons and its double seams and robust hardwood foot will ensure that it stands the test of time. Our Plank Hallway Storage Stand has enough hooks, drawers and shelves to store all your dog leads and accessories too.
GET ON TOP OF THE FAMILY POST
With Christmas on the horizon, it’s time to prepare separate spaces for all the family to keep their mail organised. The Six Plank Cubbyhole Storage can become your own personal Post Office and children will love having their own spot. Paired with our Oak Post Holder, you’ll be able to sort and store pending mail through the festive season and beyond.
Fully customisable, our Cubbyhole Storage Units can be configured with “hide-all” doors, dovetail drawers, or can simply be left open for easy access. Add a leather Cubbyhole Seat Pad and you’ve got a comfortable place to sit as well as a versatile hallway storage solution.
BE FESTIVE WITH FOLIAGE AND FLOWERS
Bring the rich colours of autumn and winter into your home with freshly cut seasonal plants. Welcome guests to your hall with a sprig of holly, a garland of golden leaves or a tempting harvest festival basket. Winter flowers in shades of white elegantly complement frosty days, or add some Halloween mischief with carved pumpkin lanterns.
Make the top of Indigo’s Plank Hall Console or Oak Hall Console a blank canvas for your botanical creations. This practical piece is designed with function in mind and features a pair of spacious drawers for your paperwork. There’s also a steadfast solid wood shelf underneath – very handy for storing your wellies or collected kindling for your fire. If you prefer something slimmer, our delightfully bijou Plank Petite Hallway Cupboard offers plenty of hidden nooks for your belongings.
