MODERN ENTRYWAY FURNITURE
Modern entryway furniture creates one of the first impressions when arriving at a home. While it may not be the first priority when redecorating, giving focus to modern entryway furniture can add a lot to the overall style of a home. And the design does not have to be complicated. Wall decor, lighting, rugs and benches are sure ways to refresh a modern foyer and add beautiful accents of contemporary African style to the entry hall.
ENTRYWAY RUG IDEAS
When configuring lobby design ideas and lobby decorating ideas, keep it simple. Sometimes an entryway is tight with space. Other times the area has tall ceilings, or other odd configurations. Whatever the shape of the room, stay clear from clutter and add a few statement design pieces to anchor the space and enhance the arrival experience.
One area to consider is entryway flooring. Entryway rug ideas can range in style depending on the overall interior design aesthetic of the home. Floor rugs carve out the path of entry. Other foyer rug ideas range from adding bright colors or intricate patterns to liven up the space. A rug is decor that is versatile and, for example, can be easily swapped for another design to mirror the changing of the seasons or the arrival of a holiday.
Entrance rug ideas can take on a variety of shapes. Consider runner rugs, their narrow shape enhances the entrance path. Other entryway rug ideas to consider are smaller or larger carpets in various sizes. Do you want a rug that serves the function of a door mat, a warm place for guests to remove their shoes and step onto the carpet? Or do you have enough space to hold a larger area rug to cover a larger portion of the floor?
ENTRYWAY LIGHTING IDEAS
Another way to capitalize on impactful modern entryway furniture is to install a modern entry light. Some entryway lighting ideas we’ve seen include customers hanging the Ndebele Woven Pendant Light from the ceiling in a foyer and, depending on the size of the space, more than one fixture can be hung.
Other entry hall lighting ideas pictures minimal lights. The Moroccan lighting comes in semi-precious metals. Their hand-pierced metal shades create a warm, sultry glow as the light seeps through. These handcrafted lights include pendants and chandeliers for a variety of lighting effects. Their composition is inspired by the coveted traditional Moroccan lanterns used for centuries.
Modern entry light comes in a variety of sized fixtures. So when considering entryway lighting ideas, it is important to assess the size of the pendant or chandelier in comparison with the size of the foyer. In particular, assess the height of the ceiling. A larger fixture may look best in a space with an oversized ceiling height whereas an entryway with a standard ceiling height of around nine feet would hold a fixture with a more modest size.
Modest size does not mean less decorative or beautiful, however. The contemporary African lighting collection is home to several options that are captivating for a foyer. Cluster light fixtures with frosted glass shades such as the Allure 4 or the Allure 8 create light that shines in multiple directions while maintaining its smaller physique.
WALL DECOR FOR FOYER AND MORE
Hallway art adds beautiful touches to entryway walls and a foyer mirror makes this decor functional. An entrance mirror is a great tool to facilitate a last minute self assessment before heading out the door. Select an entry mirror and add an accent of contemporary African design to what may otherwise be a mundane looking wall space. Mirror wall decor for foyer from the decor collection include a round mirror with a beaded border, or a wood with woven wax cord geometric design in yellow, black or white.
We will forever recommend a modern entry bench. A modern entryway bench is functional, a resting place for accessories including keys, purses, backpacks and more. A bench serves as a place to sit while putting on shoes, too. Consider the Labadi, a mid century modern entryway stool, that is made out of reclaimed cedar wood from Ghana.
