Here's the foyer of the house I recently staged. C'mon now, the foyer is the howdy-do space of the house. An empty foyer is a mega mistake--a missed opportunity. The goal is to set the tone for guests/perspective buyers as soon as they enter your house. Staging a foyer doesn't need to be elaborate but it does need to be welcoming.
Here is the BEFORE staging picture of the foyer. (The stagings of living room (left) and family room (end of the hallway) were featured in earlier postings).
I used a console table from the downstairs game room. (That's it next to the wall.) I saw potential. The home owner gave me the stink eye when I told them I wanted to use it in their foyer.
The table with its dark wood, tile insets, and SIZE is perfection! The dark stain is a great contrast to the hardwood floors. A small Mica table lamp is oh-so-sweet on top. (The light reflects off of the tiles and the lampshade is the same color as the tiles.) Accessories includes a mantel clock, hardback books, wrought iron Spaniel statue, and metal flower on a pedestal. Above the table hangs a large contemporary flower print. It incorporates all the colors used in staging the first floor of the house.

Voila! The foyer is dressed and ready for company.
Happy Friday, y'all,
