Storing/sitting stool for entryway?

This may sound silly but I need a small squarish stool for my entryway.  I have about 21 in between my front door & my closet door where I would like to put a stool.  I have a no shoes in my house policy & my DH & SIL both have "issues" with putting their shoes on standing up.  I catch them all the time in the living room sitting one couch to put the shoes on then walk to the front door on my new white carpet that my baby crawls on. So I am looking for a nice but not expensive thin stool to put the entryway that a grown up (up to hmmm I guess 200lbs) can sit on to put on shoes. Smile Would love for it to be storage too.  Any ideas on where or how to find this?  I kinda like these:

Re: Storing/sitting stool for entryway?

  • The storage ottomans that you posted are cute. I just wonder if one is going to look out of place sitting there by itself. Would you consider a small bench? This one is 22" and has a place for the shoes. From amazon:

  • Definitely one with a cushion! It will be more appealing to sit on for those who tend to go to the other room to put on shoes. Sorry I can't be of more assistance :-/

  • My FIL does the same thing at my house.  It drives me batty.  Hello!  We ask that you don't wear shoes in the house, how does it make sense to sit on the couch and walk across carpet then!  The only difference is that I have the PB Samantha bench by the door so there is no excuse.  In your case, where else do you expect them to put on their shoes?

    I have two of the Stow storage ottomans from Crate and Barrel and they are pretty nice.

    I got mine at BBB. We have them (2) in our living room for throw blankets.
