If each piece of furniture at your front door was responsible for attending to a single purpose, you could easily end up with half a dozen different objects. The Hi Bench was designed to consolidate foyer functionality within a clever compact form. Made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material, this item offers physical support and the means to store all sorts of different possessions.

Bridget Sheehan's design takes a boxy shape with a base, a side wall, a flat top and a couple of shelves inside. An open rectangle makes an ideal umbrella stand and an indentation in the upper surface serves as great spot to place small things like your wallet, your keys and your phone. Three cubbies make mats and ledges for tucking your shoes and boots away, plus you can easily put them back on by treating the Hi Bench as a stool.
