What do people without mudrooms do with backpacks and briefcases?

last year

When we remodeled our home in 2018, we maximized storage as much as we could, but couldn’t find a good way to handle storing a couple of (heavy) rolling briefcases, my daily purse and kids’ backpacks. We would like to keep these easily accessible for homework etc so they would need to be in our main living space and not in a closet. I was looking for an accent cabinet that could sit behind the sofa, but nothing I’ve found online seems to quite fit the bill.

We don’t like the clutter of items hanging from hooks (wall or in open mudroom-style furniture) for our main living space. And would like to keep everything low since they are pretty heavy. Hoping someone has creative solutions! Thank you!
