Is the entrance to your home overwhelmed by clutter? Chances are you haven't got somewhere to plonk everything when you first walk in. A "landing strip" — an area designed for storing those items — can solve that problem and provide a decorating talking point.
AleXX's example (check it out in detail in the Flickr set below) uses a bunch of IKEA components to create storage for clothes and other objects that's functional and stylish, complete with easy to change photo display options.
