DO NOT ORDER THIS BENCH...
This product upon arrival has a sticker WARNING on the bottom indicating that "this product contains a chemical known by the state of CA to cause cancer. Prop 65"
I looked up Prop 65 and what this meant, and on the website they discuss that Prop 65 is only put in place when there is a SIGNIFICANT amount of hazardous chemicals in a product, enough to cause cancer, birth defects and or reproductive harm to any individual that comes in contact with the materials.
I now have to repackage the item, and wait FOUR WEEK TO GET MY MONEY back, which is all that Overstock was willing to do to help!!!!
In addition, When this product arrived the inner fabric had multiple tears in it.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Product came damaged and online description DID NOT disclose a Prop 65 warning.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? online description DID NOT disclose a Prop 65 warning.

I've been looking at this product and am considering buying it, I work with regulations such as PROP 65 and in response to the SLC review below about this product containing cancer causing chemicals, people need to know that the warning does not usually relay a SIGNIFICANT amount of chemicals - but just the presence of certain ones which through constant exposure may present that risk.
At worst, you'd have to be sleeping on this thing to get affected. At best, it is a label manufacturers put on products in order to avoid getting sued under this regulation. In short, they have to warn even if the danger is not imminent. I do agree there should be a warning online - but not all warnings are under the control of the manufacturer since they don't control all the retailers. I'm not defending cancer or cancer causing chemicals, but being in California and actually working with this regulation, I will tell you that even coffee shops (think of the one with a celestial body in its name), children's resorts (where one famous mouse lives), food products in shelves etc. ALL use some version of that warning. You'll see that same sign in elevators, parking lots, bars, basically anywhere in California where you breathe regular air.
I do applaud pointing out the warning but I'd like to add the above for some perspective. If anyone does go to the prop 65 site, please keep in mind the exposures listed are based on inhalation, ingestion etc.. and consider if you will either be in a position to consistently inhale around this bench or ingest it.
good value for money. There are some minor scratches here and there at the legs- so I can live with it. Overall is ok and sturdy. Like the chamber inside, so we can keep some exercise stuff off-the sight
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? slightly darker

To clarify, I would like the dimensions of the storage capacity inside the ottoman. The dimensions you gave me are for the overall ottoman and they were already listed on the web site already.sjcalifornia on Jan 8, 2013
