Here is an entryway with a completely different style. The white walls and the light coloured parquet floor make it a luminous and sober space. The bench is both practical and beautiful as it allows you to put on and take off your shoes comfortably while it also functions as a decorative piece for the entryway. The mirror designs allow one to take a quick look at oneself and check out their outfit before leaving.
