Simple built-in to create a mudroom and/or storage anywhere from an entry, to kids room or in a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Put drawers under bench or have the seat lift up to store things.

[Marvelous use of pattern. In combination with the patterns of the floor and runner, the black railings and chair frame give it a graphic quality that's striking and very attractive.] Love this black and white striped stair runner
