Foyer

I need help with putting something in my foyer.  It is long and narrow.  Right now I have a bench, a long picture and a mirror.  The bench and the mirror are to the right, before the closet door and don't show up in this photo.  This is looking from the entrance.  There are double French doors to the left.  I have tried the bench under the picture and prefer it that way.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

here's a photo for inspiration. I would move the bench to another room as |I think it it too large for the narrow space, perhaps the foot of your bed.  In the photo they have a small stool that fits under the console table that you can pull out if someone needs a seat to put on there shoes

Thanks for the suggestions.  I agree about the obstacle course.  The reason I like the bench under the picture is because it clears the area inside the front door when people are arriving, not so much of a "log jam."   The picture is very long (about 52" and hubby bought it for me).  I have tried to find a console table for under it with no luck.   Most are too deep for the area.     I think about 12" max would be ideal but most seem to be 16-18".  Any ideas for a do it yourself project?

Here is a picture with the bench under the picture as well as under the mirror.  Hope they both come through.

I don't like the way it looks like a bowling alley.  You can see right from the entrance up the stairs to the bedrooms.  It just seems long and narrow and I don't know how to change that look.  Thanks.
