Order in the entryway.

November 26th, 2009


John took it upon himself to paint the hallway yesterday. This is our front door, which opens to the kitchen and the cat’s much dreaded narrow long hallway. So there isn’t much room here for disorganization.


John suggested we paint the inside of the door black, and this little bit of punctuation was just the thing this area was calling out for. Freaky aside: through our peripheral vision, we keep thinking the door is open.


We’re selling these cool little Magnet Tacks at mjölk so as you can imagine, we have already been pillaging our stock. Keeping our key situation under control, designed by Hironao Tsuboi for 100% (Japan). Sadly, this space also has a lot of unsightly fixtures such as the fire pull.


We are also selling Skagerak teak wardrobes and benches/stools for entryways. This set up works perfectly in our small space. We have a spot to sit to tie up our shoes, a box on wheels for winter gear, and a place to hang our coats, which until now had been thrown on top of whatever surfaces were available.

I realize this is starting to sound like a plug for the store, but we ordered what we wanted ourselves, so we’re naturally using it in our space!



That very rad stand umbrella is totally standing on its own, because it has feet! Ingenious design by Hironao Tsuboi for 100%.

  1. Love the teak bench/rack combo. Very nice. Clever arrangement, too, rather than push it flat against the wall.

    Good call on the black door. And, I gotta say, the fire pull station is a neat hit of colour. I kinda dig it.

    That umbrella is nuts. Love it.

  2. I was actually going to say that I kind of liked the fire pull too but left it out. Good call, Jason. Haha.

  3. It looks great! Now I’ve got to find the time to paint my door black too – I want it inside and out, to make my red berry wreath really pop! (Much like the fire pull!)
