I was surprised at the firmness of this bench, however, it is very sturdy, and easy to assemble! I purchased it for my bedroom, as I needed somewhere to sit while putting on my shoes, or just to sit and rest for a few minutes! It would be excellent for an entryway or hallway, but I would have preferred a little softer cushion. My granddaughter who just graduated from High School last week came to visit for a week. My computer and office area is in my bedroom and she was sitting on the bench beside me looking for laptop computers. She asked me why it was so firm, and picked up a pillow off my bed to sit on. If I had known how firm it was before I opened and assembled it, I would have traded it for a softer cushioned bench. However, since your return policy is so strict, in original unopened packaging, it is impossible to know how a product looks or feels until you open it and assemble it to tryout! Perhaps, your return policy needs some critiquing, as I would love to return this bench and choose another one!

This bench arrived quickly and was very easy to assemble. The quality is solid. I left one star off because the overall color appeared lighter in the picture than it is in person but it's really a beautiful piece. Since the coloring did not match my light furniture, I found another place for this piece. Thanks for offering such quality products at exceptional prices.

I ordered this product to replace a bulkier chair in our small living room. The look is exactly what I wanted and it fit the description on the site. I ordered to a US post office to avoid international fees and postage since I live in Canada about 40 mins from the border- after a 2 hour roundtrip drive to pick it up and bring it back to my Canadian house, I was very dismayed to take it out of the box and find that the 'leather' had a small area with some bubbles and even a small hole. I wasn't prepared to do that round trip again so I will live with it, but I will probably not take a chance on something like this again.

A lot of assembly is already done, which is always good. The packaging was appropriate and it took less than 15 mins to make it ready-to-use. The under seat storage is really awesome. I took off a star because the parts were missing but overstock handled it well. I recommend ths product.

I bought this bench as is was the exact size that I needed for my entry way that had width limits due to wainscoting in ours. Having put together many furniture pieces as a frequent Overstock.com shopper; this bench has quite a few pieces and unfortunately the directions for this items are not very good. With a little bit of negotiation with the pieces and about an hour and a half this bench came together nicely. I do understand that this bench comes from China but it seemed like they skimped on a few of the pieces. One of the pieces for the backing came split, but I chose to glue it rather than return or request a replacement part as I noticed when the bench was almost all the way together and I just wanted it together. If I was giving a star rating just for material quality, it would be more on the lines of a three but the finished product in my opinion deserved a 4 star rating.

The bench is nice, it looks like the picture. The only issue I had is that it arrived with one small stain on the top part, where someone would sit. I'm going to try to treat the stain, I'm hoping it comes out. Its very small, but noticeable because the stain is black and the fabric is tan. The inside is lined in black fabric and has a lot of room for storage. Very minor assembly required, only had to screw in the legs. No tools needed, they screwed right into place. I would have given 5 stars if it didn't have a stain.

This product exceeded my expectations in regards to its quality, ease in assembly and value. 1. The instructions are explicit, the assembly pieces are drilled exactly and they fit together like a glove. 2. Once assembled, the unit is solid. 3. A great value for the price...I saw this product elsewhere for $50. more! All in all, I gave the bench a 5-star rating because I was so impressed with it.

My wife and I are overall pleased with the purchase of this product. It seems to be well-built and durable. The color is probably the only issue I have. It is in a room with several other cream/white colored furniture. It is definitely not similar in tone to these. Honestly though, it really doesn't bother me that much. If that's the only 'issue', I have no problem giving this product 5 stars. Great product, well made, great price. Product was well packaged, shipped in a timely manner and required minimal assembly.

I had no problem with the assembly, and the finished product looks very nice under a window in my office. I haven't purchased any baskets for the openings yet, but plan to get one or two.

I bought two ottomans to replace a huge coffee table. They look better than I thought they would! The pleather looks great and feels like a soft leather. My favorite feature is the open storage space where I put decorative candles and magazines (the enclosed cube would be wasted storage space to me). The thick cushion looks good, is comfortable and look better that others I've seen, all of which are $50-150 more expensive (online and off).The product arrived very well packaged and assembly consisted only of installation of the 4 feet. I give 4 stars of 5 for workmanship because the holes for the feet weren't precisely consistent on all 4 corners and some were too close to the inside edge. There is no visible flaw and the ottomans are solid, feet secure, but during assembly I could feel that a screw or two settled between two pieces of wood instead of in one.

It is rare these days to purchase an item on line that is EXACTLY what you pictured in your mind for color, quality and functionality. This item was just that....perfectly pictured and described in the advertisment . No surprises here at all. I was trying to match leather colors, which anyone will tell you is difficult at best to do, but with Overstocks great color picture and description, this ottoman met all my expectations to a tee. Shipping was fast and packaging was above average for the product. I am pleased to give a 5 star review. Thank you Overstock. I will purchase again you can count on it.

I was very impressed when I opened the box, and noticed that the finished product are made from solid wood. I think it's quite a great deal for this bench. The reason it got 4-stars instead of 5-stars was because one screw was missing in one of the legs. I had to use other methods to get the bench together.

I was very impressed with this bench which was just what I expected. I placed it behind my sofa like you would a sofa table and it looks very sharp. I loved the quality of the leather and the chrome went perfectly with the chrome legs on my sofa. It is very modern and wakes up the area. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the welding of the chrome could have been better in certain areas. Nothing that would make me want to send it back, but a better job could have been done. It perfectly meets my needs and I am very glad I bought it. It came in one piece and the shipping was pretty quick. I would definitely recommend this product.

I was very pleased with the storage bench, it arrived sooner than expected. It fits and looks nice at the foot of my queen size bed. I purchased it for two reasons: I wanted something to keep throws and toss pillows in and as a stepping block for my little shih tzu to get onto the foot of the newly purchased very high bed! Just the right height and narrow enough to still have plenty of room to walk around the bed. I would have rated it 5 stars except I am disappointed in the operation of the hinge. It doesn't allow for a full 90 degree opening, however, it still makes for easy access. I purchased other products from Overstock and was always satisfied, especially with the shipping charges!!!

I am a fairly handy female and I was able to assemble this in a reasonable amount of time. I don't know exactly how long it took since I was watching t.v. while working on it. As with any pre manufactured furniture product I would recommend using wood glue to help make it more sturdy.Nice for the price. Product looks good, would have given it 5 stars if the top didn't have the small chip. Assembly was fairly easy, but would have been nice if the finished sides were represented differently than they were in the instructions. It would have saved time.

After reading the reviews on this product, I decided to buy it for our entry. True to the reviews, it was time intensive on putting together. My handyman husband put it together himself while I was gone. His comments were: the instructions are not clear, the stick on lables to identify the parts were everywhere and had to be peeled off or had fallen off and the part had to be identified through the processof elimination, and the cam covers were cheaply stamped, resulting in half moon shapes rather than full cirlces. (Hence, the four stars) He suggested rather than make them out of felt, the manufacturer could make them out of pre-stamped, wood-grained vinyl. Once together, it looks really nice, is sturdy and solid for people to sit on, and fits perfectly in the area is was purchased for. We are overall very satisfied with the bench.

My gripe is more about the assembly than the product. Several holes didn't line up right which caused me to refashion the hole and then have to use a long screw to keep it together. You'd never know because it looks perfect. Hence, the lower 4 star rating.

Ok, I was very impressed with the swift delivery of this product. I ordered 2 (other) outdoor benches and then 2 days later ordered two of these...I received these last Wed and the first ordered set, today!! Very, very impressed!!! On to the product itself - - appears to be well made, not heavy at all, surprisingly but not in a bad way. It appears to be solid but the wood itself is on the lighter side. It says weathered "grey" bench and although I read the other reviews, I went ahead and ordered 2 and hoped that mine would be on the grey side, but it is not. Very textural piece in terms of color but to the touch, it is smooth despite the wood graining; will not have any problem with splinter or anything like that. It's a very attractive modern looking piece, straight lines, which I like a lot. The best part? It came in 1 piece, no assembly required. The picture above looks to be reddish with dark grains, IRL it's light colored wood with black grains. The finish product is a beautiful piece. I would have given it 5 stars if the color is as described. All in all, very happy with the purchase and I can't wait to get my black/brown long table, the same lines as with this bench. I will put these on each side and regular upholstered chairs on each end.

We are very happy with the product. Would have given 5 stars, but it was delivered missing 8 screws. Overstock took care of it right away, very professional. Perfect for storing hats, gloves, scarves - each one of our kids has his/her own basket. I've never seen them so excited to put their things away! The baskets are large so there is plenty of space for everything. I'm a bit concerned that the cushion might show dirt quickly, but it looks easy enough to re-cover if that's the case.

I'm satisfied with this product. I put it together in about 1.5 hours (would have taken less time but my children were home and interrupted me on occasion). I didn't give it an excellent/5 star review because I wish this product was made of solid wood instead of MDF. Nevertheless, it looks nice and feels sturdy. Time will tell if it can hold up to the abuse of 3 school aged boys. It has instantly helped my visual clutter in the entryway, and given my children and easy solution to putting their shoes somewhere. I only wish that it had a cushion with it! Delivery was on time, and all the parts were there and the pieces were in great condition (no scratches, etc.)

This is a really nice bench. I'd give it 5 stars sans it being a bit difficult to assemble and the color was slightly different than I expected. The bolts are a bit awkward in placement and it took some doing to get them all tightened, but once done, it is nicely solid. The color is much more grey than I'd expected. I was anticipating it to be more linen, or tan in color, but it is overall a nice, neutral color and a well made product. I like how it looks at the foot of my king size bed. A decent size for that purpose - not too large, and not dwarfed by the size of the bed. It would do equally well placed at the foot of a queen, or even standard bed. Nice addition to my bedroom.
