An anteroom is a greeting space that kindly accepts our exhaustion when we return home after a long day spent at the office.
It feels good to be able to sit down somewhere nice, comfortably take off our shoes, and put on slippers. 
A convenient spot to put down shopping and other bags, as well as car keys, should also form a part of any carefully designed anteroom.

The anteroom reflects who we are; it is the first thing that our guests see on arrival, and the last thing that is imprinted on their minds when they leave.
The significance of furnishings and ways in which this room welcomes its guests should therefore not be disregarded.
