I think the point of this is to learn to simplify. THIS picture is styled but it's a great idea and shouldn't really matter where you live. We live in Chicago and we do need winter gear...but we are trying to simplify and have less clutter. We really only need 2 coats each: 1 big warm puffer coat for snow storms, shoveling, etc and 1 nice wool pea coat. So this picture could suit a family of three or four. Pack the stuff away you don't need for the season and decide what you truly need. Each bin on top could house 2 pairs of gloves, 2 scarves, 2 hats each. If you don't find the bottom drawers useful, you can leave it open and put a snowmat under the bench for snowy boots and shoes. It would encourage the family to take off their shoes/boots and stow them under the bench nicely rather than just kicking them off all over the foyer. You could use double hooks instead of the single ones in the picture and could easily fit 4 across which would house 8 coats or some coats and a few bags, school bags, etc. I think this is a lesson in learning to simplify. Unless you have really ugly coats, I think you can make this realistic and still look pretty.
