Day 72 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Victorian Hallway Tree

This is a Victorian Hallway Tree that lives on the third floor of the Historic Section here at the Hotel Boulderado. The Victorians hadn't yet learned the beauty of built-in storage amenities like cabinets and closets. To compensate, they often favored furniture with storage options, like this hallway tree. A piece like this would stand in your entryway or the first hallway in your home. There are multiple levels of hooks to hang your hat and coat, and the seat lifts up to store away your boots.
