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.
Use an oversized urn with a sprawling palm tree. A 19th century Victorian Hall Tree in the right home would be beautiful and functional. An antique store would be the best place to look for a piece like this or better yet an auction or estate sale. Use a pair of corbels topped with marble or a pair of iron supports topped with glass for a shelf to hold a vase of flowers, keys and mail.
