Foyer idea -- built-in bench as a room divider?
I'm still trying to identify ways to resolve my issues with the default floorplan with minimal structural changes. Here's my latest scheme...

Bench/post like this, but wider and longer:
Model home on left, Photoshopped idea on right
(Pretend the wood is painted white and the hooks are at the right height--my photoshop skills aren't that good!)
The room would be home to an upright piano, some comfy seating, and maybe a bookcase.
Do you see any logistical issues with this idea?
