    Nothing says "New England Farmhouse" like Shaker furniture and a church pew in the hallway. Nice job!

      A bench not only looks welcoming, but provides function and design to this hardworking area of the home. Here, a long bench allows for baskets to be placed underneath. Hooks line the entire perimeter of the room above the wainscoting, and a charming antique urn for umbrella storage completes the look.

      2. The peg rail. The Shaker peg rail, a simple board affixed to the wall with evenly spaced pegs, can be used to hang up just about anything, from clothes to tools. Traditionally, the ladder part of ladder-back chairs could be hung on the peg rail to get the chairs out of the way while someone was sweeping up.

      After all, McKeeby — the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, dentist used as one of the models for Wood’s painting — likely didn’t look agrarian until the artist painted him in overalls with a pitchfork in his hand. The classic farm implement makes a simple statement in the house here, by Joan Heaton Architects.

      Very large pieces of stoneware, such as this 15-gallon vessel used to store umbrellas in an entry, may have handles.

      9. Stoneware crocks. Widely used for food storage before refrigeration, stoneware crocks of various sizes are a frequent antiques fair find. Smaller crocks can hold kitchen utensils or flowers, while the larger ones are perfect for storing umbrellas or rolls of wrapping paper.

      This entryway is a homage to the Yankee way of life. Hard work is reflected in the farm tools, upright living in the church pew bench. The color scheme itself is muted, earthy and discreet.

      Lisa Frederick added this to Church Pews Reform the Classic BenchJun 22, 2012

      A pew in this mudroom provides plenty of room to sprawl out and unlace muddy boots or plop down bags of produce from the market. The pitchfork on the wall contributes to the farmlike "American Gothic" overtones.

      Long mud room with bench and shaker rail is good - wide one might prevent bottleneck at the door?
