What Makes a “Foyer” a Foyer?


The foyer, in Feng Shui, represents the Career, Life Mission and Individuality Life Area, regardless of where it is located in the bagua map.

The foyer is symbolic of how you welcome yourself to your own home and how you welcome chi (the life force) into your life.

Regardless of how much care you put into your foyer, there is one piece of furniture that, if it is missing, your entrance will never feel just right.

So what is the one piece of furniture that is essential for foyers?


The piece of furniture without which your foyer will never feel complete is the entry table. This is the “centerpiece” of any foyer. This is how you welcome yourself to your home life every day, as you come home.

Your entry table:

  • should be of a size that does not create constrictions in the foyer
  • should either be in half moon shape or rectangular with rounded corners
  • needs to be pushed against a wall and not in the middle of the space
  • on it or around it, you need to have representations of all five elements (water, wood, fire, earth, metal)

Of course, there is more to creating a Magnificent Foyer than just knowing how to choose an entry table. The foyer is the space in your home where you can invite more abundance into your life and place cures to increase money. This is also the spot in the home where you can enhance career. In the course Setting Up House – Room by Room you will learn all you need to know in order to create a Magnificent Foyer.

  1. What if I have an entryway that is not big enough to be a foyer? I already have entry type things (bins for mittens, place for keys) spilling over into the living room as it is. The living room is large enough, though, that it could almost be two spaces. Or do I just say, well, I don’t have a foyer– and ignore it.

    • There are several ways to create a virtual foyer, we will go over these in the class. 🙂 In Feng Shui, by the way, we never place the keys by the entrance, but rather in a more protected site in the home.
