Hang a tapestry on an iron rod and place a garden bench beneath. The tapestry will add softness and texture. The bench will not only be esthetically pleasing but functional as well, serving as a place for removing shoes or simply a resting place. If you have the ample room in your foyer, using a chest or commode is an excellent choice. The top of the chest gives you plenty of area to display your favorite lamp or a pair of candlestick lamps. You may also want to accessorize with a small collection of boxes or any other collection. I love the idea of all the extra storage space you gain when using a chest.
Apart from chandeliers, even pendant lighting gains more popularity in decorating the foyer. For instance, Kichler pendant lights come in different styles and you can choose the right one that gives your home a welcoming effect. If your foyers have low ceiling, then instead of long chandeliers and pendant lights, you can fix flush mount or semi-flush mount ceiling lights in your entryway.
