Where does your work stuff land when you come in the door?

I need another place to store work stuff at home.

My husband and I both carry laptop bags back and forth to work. When we come home, they kind of get...dumped. Mine sits in the foyer in the front hall, my husband usually leaves his in the living room next to the sofa (and visible from the front hall) along with his man-purse. We do work at home sometimes, but sort of all over the house - dining room, living room, spare bedroom, the chair in the master bedroom, so there's no "oh, always drop it THERE, since that's where you might be".
It kind of drives me batty - the visual clutter, the tripping over things, whatever. I hate that the first thing you see when you come in the door is tangled straps and open bags. I'd like someplace for them to "live", but nothing I've thought of makes sense, and it occurs to me that I might be overthinking this (I know, I know).
If you've had this issue, how did you solve it?
