I bought this as a filler piece between two new cabinets. It offers a perfect place for pulling off tights and putting on shoes. That's the practical side of the selection. The bench is well-made and very attractive, especially with the ornamental tacks. It went together easily and feels sturdy. I'm happy with my purchase.
I bought this to go in my bathroom to have seating. My family and friends are estatic about this bench. It was easy to put together. However, in less than one year, the legs on this bench broke. So disappointed with the fact that there is no one year manufacturer warranty for this item. I will no longer buy furniture items from Overtsock if manufacturer warranties are not included.
