Firstly, let me say my wife and I love the look of this bench! We are using 2 of them in our kitchen as a banquette and they are great. I am a big guy, and sitting on some of the upholstered benches that I have looked at brick and mortar stores, well, they just did not feel like they would hold up. Not the case with this bench. We took a chance, not being able to see it except in the above picture, but we are so pleased with the construction. The storage inside is enormous. The leather is top notch, and the feel of the seat for us is wonderful. You would think with the tufting that it would be overly soft but that is not the case. Like I said, I am a big guy and this does not give under the pressure of my sitting on it at all. Just enough padding to make it comfortable. Again, well-constructed. The lid stays up by itself in all positions. The interior of the bench is lined with a soft black fabric. The items themselves came well-packaged, with a muslin bag over the the item and a heavy box surrounding that. This is one of the best sight unseen purchases that we have made in some time. I would recommend this to anyone for any use.
We own this product. We received it as a gift from our friends that shop frequently on Overstock and love the site! But, please note the following in your purchase decision: Although the word "leather" is prominently stated, this is actually BICAST leather, as mentioned briefly in the 'features' listing. BICAST leather is a synthetic upholstery product consisting of a thick polyurethane layer applied to a leather or reconstituted leather substrate. It is commonly found in inexpensive furniture. IF you don't care that this is not genuine leather and is therefore mostly a man-made covering, then this is a good deal for the price, style, and function.
The bench arrived fully assembled wrapped in a plastic bag. The leather looks and feels great. It has a very nice lining on the inside and the lid hinges perfectly so that you can load and unload the bench for storage and not have to hold it up while doing so. Just what I needed at the end of our bed for extra blankets and even quick clean ups. I would highly recommend this piece.
Couldn't be happier! Not only as advertised - quality is excellent, measurements and color are exact and delivery was within 3 working days! All I can say is WOW! I have dealt with Overstock as a Retailer and products were as advertised and sold successfully. Now as a "regular" consumer I continue to be impressed. The quality of this bench is terrific and great care was taken in the packing. Arrived in great condition and - Once again - Overstock comes thru. Thank you.
I haven't used Overstock before. I needed something like this for my office, which is too small for a couch to fit. I trusted the reviews on here and I was really pleased with the product when it arrived. Its really well made, and like others I agree it was shipped with care. Its wrapped inside in a bag to ensure its protected inside the box. The unit is totally solid. It looks really nice (I wish these reviews could let you post a pic like in Trip Advisor) in my office. The storage is solid, and the inside of the box is clean and finished nicely. I am really pleased with this product, I love the pattern on the outside, it looks totally classy, kind of manly, but I am good with that :)

Very happy with this purchase. Had read other reviews cautioning that the leather was not a true leather in the sense it is "bi-cast". The only difference that I notice from other leather pieces that I have is that the leather is firmer which is perfect since I am using it as a bench at the foot of my bed. Love the extra storage it provides. Opens easily and is hinged so it stays open until you close it. Great safety feature for the grand kids. Also, Overstock.com has exemplary customer service and problems are taken care of promptly without further inconvenience to customer. The wood footing on the first bench I received was broken in transit. I called and they immediately set it up for UPS to come and pick up and shipped me out a new one. Very good service.

This bench is just what I was looking for to place at the foot of my bed. It feels luxurious, and has loads of storage. It was packed great and had a storage bag over it. I received it in a few days, and I love it. I had looked all over for one and decided on this one; I'm glad I did.

Remember, this is Bi Cast Leather but the actual product looks really good. I was impressed with the sturdiness of the bench. I use it in my bathroom for extra storage and to give my husband a place to sit while putting his shoes on. The top is hinged and raises smoothly. The inside is nicely lined. Great product for the money.

We just got this bench for our living room, what a chic and functional addition that instantly ties the whole room together. What we love is that the storage under the seat is great for extra magazines, and a spare blanket in the winter. The delivery was quick, and assembly was, well....not needed! No complaints.
I bought one of these benches last year. Recently I found that it fit nicely in my small dining area to replace space hogging chairs. Now I have a bench that is functional and comfortable as well as space saving in my dining area and supplemented with only 1 or 2 chairs makes the dining area look and feel much less cluttered. After moving the bench I found I missed having it where it had been before so I just had to order another. The benches are well made, sturdy, no assembly required and besides being very comfortable, they look great! In addition they provide always useful and much needed storage (one can never have enough storage space) in my small home.
