The Offset Bench from West Elm is the perfect entryway piece, especially if yours is a "shoes off, please" home. With a nicely upholstered cushion (available in red, beige, or grey), taking those shoes off or tying them back on just got a whole lot easier for guests--and yourself! As for the extra storage on the side? BONUS!
P.S. This bench reminds me a little of Blu Dot's Cognita Bench, albeit with a lighter visual heft... and a third of the cost.
