According to Michele Vig, founder and chief organizer of Neat Little Nest, “An entry table gives individuals and families a place to drop critical items right when they come into the house, which makes them easy to find when you need them.”

We couldn’t agree more, Michele. Entryway tables can be a great household problem solver. Whether you need a convenient drop zone for mail, the dog’s leash, or your purse, an entryway table is ready to tackle the job. And we can’t neglect to mention these furniture pieces’ storage (and aesthetic) potential.

Match your current home décor with a rustic-style table you’ll have for years, or spice things up with a show-stopping statement piece that doubles as shoe storage.

Regardless of what appeals to you, our 12 ideas for entryway tables will blow you (and guests) away.
