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 bench is perfect. I was looking for something that wouldn't take up a lot of space but still have a nice home-type feeling for my office. The slim design fits well in my office and would be nice at the end of a bed. I would definitely recommend this product!

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 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.

WHILE SITTING @ DOCTORS OFFICE, I NOTICED A SIMILAR PRODUCT THERE. I HAD MY "NEXUS" WITH ME SO I DECIDED TO LOOK FOR SOMETHING SIMILAR. I FOUND IT ON LINE AND INMEDIATELLY ORDERED. I AM SO GLAD I DID. TO MY SURPRISE IT HAS A VERY RICH LOOK AND WE USE IT TO STORE OUR BLANKETS AND SIT ON IT TO PUT ON OUR SHOES. GREAT BUY!

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.

Quick delivery only took about 3 days to receive and product was in good shape! Assembly took 1 hour without the help of my husband so not bad. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is that the bench seat was not very secure after assembly without the help of glue which directions did not recommend. I added a little glue to the wooden dowels and it worked well, easy fix! Very versitile storage piece in our home from the nursery, home entry to the playroom! Overall really like it!

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
