Simple seating and hooks in my small rowhouse entryway/mudroom in Baltimore

Our main entry and mud room. These benches are used all the time. The entryway to sit and wait for someone to arrive. The bench can also be used as extra seating with our dining and extending breakfast nook tables, which when combined with chairs, allows us to seat 19 at our tables plus 6 at our bars—up to 25 seated! The mudroom bench is used mostly to tie our shoes and holds the stuff we need to take with us when we leave!
