This piece is absolutely perfect for us in so many ways. Backpacks and shoes strewn at the door were making me an insane person, and this shelving unit checks all the boxes. Practical, pretty, and sturdy. Plenty of hanging space for backpacks and a great bench for sitting or placing larger items.
I love the stacked open shelves as well as the (included!) cloth boxes for holding misc items. We use the bottom one for clean socks and the top one for dirty socks and face masks.
