When I saw the words "hall tree" the other day on West Elm, I thought there had been an error, because uh, where's the greenery? Turns out, idiot that I am, a "hall tree" isn't a potted plant, but rather a sort of station you place in your entryway. These compact storage pieces, usually offering places to hang clothing, stash shoes, or even check your lipstick in a mirror, are also sometimes just called "entryway stands" (although CB2 prefers the very posh "valet stand"). Sure enough, I realized I've actually been seeing hall trees a lot recently, and they make a lot of sense — it seems the rise in small space living isn't slowing down anytime soon.
If you're looking to add some organization to a mud room or front hallway, check out these hall trees you can buy now:
