The console is the perfect furnishing for this type of space. This narrow piece, silhouetted against an entrance wall acts as a splendid serving platter. It presents forth, offering the visitor a visual buffet of treasures representing the character of the house beyond. The addition of a dramatic lamp illuminates the miniature stage.
It’s the antechamber to receive visitors, a spatial purgatory one must go through before entering asylum. The master or mistress of the house gets to daily play the role of St. Peter, welcoming (or turning away) the expectant visitor. If your home is your castle, the foyer is your drawbridge, congenial arms outstretched. Grace is held out and admittance is sanctioned.
Come on in. What may I get you to drink?
