This is a beautiful color and design, but poorly constructed. The pieces are hard to assemble and the entire bench is unsteady. The wood is actually particle board. The pieces do not fit tightly together or meet at the edges. The side rails are not tight. First day the black plastic peg broke off in the hol and a large piece of the "fake" wood, broke off and can not be glued back on. Extremely disappointed considering the cost.

Beautiful cherry cubbie to go at the end of the bed. Very useful for holding the pillows we got with our bed set from Overstock! Simply couldn't be happier with it; really makes the bedroom seem much less cluttered and prettier!

I bought this bench for 2 purposes: to create additional seating in my livingroom, and to store my photo albums. The bench arrived very quickly, intact, undamaged and with all the hardware. It took approximately an hour to put it together. However, the instructions are not as clear as they could be, particularly with regard to working with the pegs that hold everything together. They don't tell you how far to put them into the wood and it took awhile to figure out how best to work with them. That said, the bench is beautiful and looks just as described on the website. It also appears to be quite strong. The only thing I would have liked is for the bench to be a bit deeper, but at 15 1/2 inches, that is deeper than most other benches and storage cubes I looked at. I just ordered a cushion to go with it and I'm looking forward to seeing it used in my livingroom!
The furniture is your average assemle it yourself pressed material furniture. It makes a nice appearance it my extra bedroom. I did not want to put hundreds of dollars into furniture that is used maybe 5 or 6 times a year. However, I did have a shipping problem that Overstock.com took care of it immediately. They were wonderful in helping me solve the problem. I was afraid I would have an issue getting the problem corrected, but they were great. I would recommend this furniture to anyone wanting to fill an extra room or for a room that would be used very little or by someone that would not be abusive to the furniture.
