First up is Crate and Barrels Paterson Bench for the front hall. A dear friend of mine would love to purchase it but with the duties and taxes in Canada it's far too expensive. As with many of us who recently bought a home she's got to be smart with her money because there are many purchases to be made.
Has anyone in Toronto sourced out a similar product but less expensive? Ideally we (it's like I'm purchasing this as well... I've thought about it but can't afford to right now) would like solid wood. I have sent her to Naked Furniture to get a quote. I will let you know what they say once she hears back.
Here are a few entrance storage solutions and mudrooms that can provide great inspiration! It's all about keeping it clean and simple with easy access storage.
