Bench comes with instructions that are incredibly easy to follow - not just pictures but actual written instructions! I actually put it together myself without my husband having to explain them a single time.
We've used for less than a week but so far quality appears decent for the price. There was one small scratch/dent when it arrived but it is underneath so you can't see it.
Cushion appears to be wipeable with a damp cloth and almost appears to be vinyl. I'll probably make a cover for it to add some pizazz to the entryway nice the cushion is just a neutral tan color.
Bench can carry loads up to 240 pounds which is nice and works for our household but it'd be nice if that feature was described online too.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color of bench is as appears on screen/described.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. We've used for less than a week but so far quality appears decent.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
I own a townhouse that doesn't have a foyer, so this was purchased to have some place to put boots and shoes while not clogging up the entry door. It certainly fits the bill. I'm a DIY person and assembled it myself in less than an hour. It seems sturdy even to handle the traffic in my household.
This is perfect for my child to use .. It is not to high and not to big. It was easy to put together. The color was more black at least that is what it looks like to me..
I was very happy with it and all the pieces came to put it together with ..
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

This bench was just the right size for the space I have. Wanted to try to start the habit of removing shoes and putting on slippers when entering the house. This was easy to put together, did it by myself in 2 hrs. We now have a place to sit right by the door and the shoes/slippers are neatly stored almost out of sight.
This is a very nice little bench with storage cubicles under the seat, however it is small. Make sure to read the dimensions before purchasing because you may be disappointed with the size. I bought it for something to sit on in the bedroom while putting on socks, etc., and it's even a tad small for me @ 5'3". My husband @ 6'4" finds it difficult to bend down to use and would rather stand. The cushion is very hard, and a little like the material of a shower curtain, which is nice if you are going to use it for a child's room. I ended up putting it in my granddaughter's room and it fits perfectly there. It's a great window seat, she loves putting her shoes in the cubicles and we are overall pleased. There is also a Velcro strap for the cushion so it doesn't slip off. I find that to be a nice feature so the little ones aren't able to fall off the cushion.
It arrived in many pieces! but it was pretty easy to follow the directions, I did put one piece on backwards but once I got that sorted out it went together pretty easily. It is the perfect size in the space I had and it works beautifully to hold all the shoes I am too lazy to try to put back into my small closet. I do love this piece, except for the cushion. I am going to have a custom one made with pretty fabric.
My new home has no foyer per se and we remove our shoes at the door so this sits perfectly on the near wall and provides cubbies to store shoes and slippers and is a place to sit and put shoes on. It's lines are clean and the assembly took about an hour but I was able to do it myself - would have gone faster if I had paid attention to the direction of the cubby dividers - had to do that part over. The cubbies are large enough to hold baskets if you prefer.

I don't think any of those products below will fit given the size of each cube is 10" wide x 10" high x 15" deep. Those baskets are too large for the cubes. Need something else. Something 8x8x14-15jessiethe3rd on Jul 2, 2014
