A hall tree is a piece of furniture, usually found in hallways or near the entryway of homes, on which people hang items such as hats, coats, or other clothing. They often have mirrors and drawers to store personal items such as wallets, sunglasses, money, etc. Many incorporate a bench to sit upon while putting on or taking off footwear. The bench seat is often hinged with a storage space underneath often used for shoes, hats and gloves. Most hall trees are made of wood. In Victorian times some of the better quality hall trees were made of walnut or oak.
