Sitting the bench.

When entering or leaving our condo I often find myself on the floor lacing up my boots or taking them off. Since we have a slim cove in our long hallway entrance, I plan on building a bench for this area making it easier and much more welcoming for any visitors. The idea is for the bench to fill this 96"x16" space and to have built in cubby holes to place our shoes. Below are some design inspirations I have been looking at in which I may utilize one or many ideas and incorporate them into my design.

I like the space this one allows underneath but I feel it may be too boxy for my intentions and make the hallway feel claustrophobic.

I really like this design because of the multiple cubby hole space that is incorporated into the design and not as big or clunky.

I know this doesn't have the shoe cubbies we are looking for but I really like this design and think some can be added and still maintain it's sleekness.

I'm not so sure about this one but I love the simplicity of it's manufacturing. Soon as I saw it I realized how easy it is to build.

All these benches can be found at Design Public.

I pick #2. I would be proud to place my fresh-scented shoes in there.

Brandon wrote this post. He is actually in the process of building our new bench. It won't look like any of these, but will have cubbies for shoes.

I was inspired by the bench at my yoga studio. :-)
