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.

This piece is really nice. It is the exact pop of color I needed and it is very functional, used for seating when guest are over and used as a footrest while sitting on the sofa when chillin out. A piece of the support bracket was broken off the unit upon arrival. It is still sturdy and my husband can make the repair. It is the only reason this product was not rated at 5 stars on quality.

After reading all the comments about the color of the bench, I was ready for anything. Imagine my surprise when I opened it up and out popped a cream-colored bench. Cream, as in "warmish off-white." Not green or yellow. The lighting in your room, and the colors of the walls and furniture in it, will affect the way every piece of new furniture looks. I opened the bench at home in artificial light and it looked cream. I took it to my office, where it now lives under two massive skylights showering it with Pacific Northwest natural light (said to be more blue than in the South), and it still looks cream to me. So no weird surprises here. The wall behind the bench is cactus green and my other furniture chocolate brown, so the cream color works great as a neutral. If you've got lots of cooler colors, especially blue or purple, or else weird lighting, this bench might not fare so well. But play with the lighting; even changing out your bulbs can completely transform the colors of your furniture. My biggest surprise (apart from how quickly it arrived) was that the tufts are not secured with leather-covered buttons. The tufting consists of indentations with nothing in them. The action of the lid is tight, not because of the hinges, which work fine, but because of the proximity of the lid to the sides. You feel and hear the friction between the top and sides whenever you open or close it. Because I open and close the bench multiple times a day, I'm also concerned about dirtying the front with my hands, since there is no pull tag for the lid. For these reasons, I give this beautiful bench 4 rather than 5 stars. But if you don't open the bench often, both these things will be no problem for you at all. This is a smart and stylish piece that's mainly for show, and for longer-term storage. If that's what you're looking for, this bench is a 10-star value.

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 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.

We purchased 2 of these ottoman with flip top trays and they worked perfectly to provide a couple more seating options without taking up much space in a relatively small apartment. I got it very quickly and it was easy to put together. Its the perfect size and with a tray for food and other things. Overall, this is definitely a 5-star product!

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 bought two of these benches and they are great. One for my home and one for my dental office. The price is unbelievable and the quality is second to none. I found these same benches at another furniture store for 600 dollars. Great buy and boy am I glad I made the purchase. a five star item in my book.

I love my bench. It was easy to assemble taking about 15 minutes only because I took my time. The reason why I rate this product four stars is because of the poor packing of materials inside the box. Screws and washers were outside of its packaged envelop. I had to carefully look to throughout the packing material for six of the eight washers. Other than that, the bench looks true to its picture and is very sturdy.

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.

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.

This bench looks very posh, is well-made and is incredibly versatile. I've moved it around my apartment, using it as a coffee table/foot stool in front of a loveseat, a bench at the end of my bed, and seating at a long desk. I definitely recommend it but folks should know it is not leather as most people understand leather to be (full-grain) and it certainly doesn't smell like leather as one review stated. Rather it is bi-cast "leather" which consists of a split leather backing coated with a layer of polyurethane and then embossed to look like leather. The surface therefore has an artificially consistent texture, unlike leather which normally has marks and scars. The product description is a little misleading as it says it is a "quality brown leather" but then goes on to describe bi-cast leather: "cow leather with polyurethane coating." But having said this, bi-cast leather is actually easier to clean and you don't have to worry about protecting it as much as you would leather so there are benefits. And of course bi-cast is much more affordable so you can't beat the price. I give this bench 5 stars as a quality piece of furniture.

The product looks exactly like it does on the site, no surprises. It's solid and performs well. Merits the 5 stars for these two reasons alone.

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 was so disappointed with this product. I can not believe it's been rated 5 stars unless only one other person rated this. First, it is impossible to get the legs screwed into the bottom of the bench. Right now mine is just free standing on the legs and any movement the legs fall off. It's very hard to open the top and lock it into place. Additionally, closing it is a risk on your fingers. VERY VERY disappointed. Had I paid only 50.00 it would be different.

I love this bench! It is very roomy and is built very well. It is stark white in color. I use it as a toy bin for my daughter and I don't have to worry about the lid slamming down on her. Great product and the price is amazing! I love that I can just wipe this with a damp cloth and not worry about it staining. Shipping was fast and I had no problems with it being damaged en route. I highly reccomend this product.

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.

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.

Leather looks and feels great, assembly is a breeze. The completed product is very sturdy, does not end up looking like a generic glob of pre-fab furniture. Adds a simple effortless charm and looks classy - I placed it in front of a large piece of framed artwork in the library of my home. I have received many compliments and comments on the piece in just the few weeks I've had it. I originally had two small tube shaped bumper pillows on it and switched to a few small throw pillows to change up the look for a social gathering. Am getting another one for my off site office. Thanks Overstock!

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.

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.
