I am completely satisfied with the quality of this bench. The leather is very lustrous. The size of it is very adequate for the foot of my king size bed. The storage is enormous. It is very sturdy and we have pulled into our living room to accommodate additional seating when large numbers of company come over. It really matches our brown leather sofa and chair. It could be a little more padded on the top but overall it has everything I was looking for. I saw on line at other stores for a higher price. A must say if you are looking for a quality and expensive looking piece of furniture for a great price get this bench. I was a little afraid when it showed up because the box was quite a bit rough with tears but the bench remained in tact with no defects. I love the way the hinges stay open for you while you fill the bench with storage. You don't have to keep opening it. May consider getting another just to have in the living room and keep this one in my bedroom. The height is also perfect for sitting on to put your shoes or to rest.
This bench is perfect! It is a very dark espresso color and is much nicer than in the picture. Looks great at the end of my king size bed. It is one of the taller benches that I have been able to find and I have been looking for a while. It is also deeper than others I have found so it is great for storage. The stitching is the same color as the "leather". The price is great compared to other benches I have found. My 7 year old son and I put the legs on in 10 minutes.
I read reviews before I ordered this bench. Several reviews mentioned damage during shipment. I was hoping to avoid damage but there was an area on the lid of the bench that had a sharp object or box on it. The box and the flimsy sheet of styro foam was ripped. The leather did not rip but the foam under the leather was smashed in. We were hoping the inner foam would spring back. The inner foam did for the most part come back but you can still see the area and it has a slight flaw. Overstock need to make certain their supplier is using adequate styro foam for packing. The styro foam is almost as thin as paper. This is a very heavy bench so it needs a sturdier shipping box with thicker packing styro foam. If you order this item you are gambling on the condition it will arrive.
Very good quality for the price, looks perfect in my great room. It's helping to contain my kids' junk and can also serve as additional seating when needed. Very dark espresso color, perfect with my decor. One assembly tip for attaching the legs: Two of the metal tap hole pieces in the bench bottom -- the pieces with the internal threads to accept the bolts -- were installed at an angle, making it difficult to screw in the feet. I screwed a bolt partway into the hole and tapped it from the side with a hammer until the bolt appeared straight/upright, then removed the bolt and attached the feet with the same bolt as usual, worked fine.
I love the product until I had for a few years and the top portion began to peel and crack not attractive at all and for the price I would have believed the bench would have lasted a lifetime but hasn't. I love the leather and the depth of the storage area, however just disappointed that the top section didnt hold up. I had it now for 6 years and it's peeling even more might get rid of it.

We are in the middle of a move and were disappointed when the bench arrived with packaging falling apart. (Noted by UPS). We read that products must be returned in original boxes. Impossible! So I opted to keep the bench and buy a leather repair kit. (Punctured edge on the bench). If we had not been so busy, I might have tried to return the bench. But my experience in the past is that Overstock is not as return friendly as Amazon, which is why I don't use them more often. Would I recommend the bench? Yes. Would I recommend the shipper? No.
I ordered this bench before seeing another one that was available. After the order was placed, I did some further research and found that there were too many negative reviews about the "leather" and I became very concerned about the quality over time. Therefore, I returned the bench and found another one made of solid wood. I am not a fan of this leather byproduct and shouldn't expect quality leather at this price.
I was looking for a leather bench to sit at the end of my king sized bed. This is perfect legth. A little short, but I think my mattress is taller than most. Storage space is really good. Holds 2 stacks of winter sweaters (8 deep), plus 3 decorative square pillows when not in use. Surface scratch in leather and stripped screws for 2 legs brought my rating down to a 4 star, but I still think it was worth the money.
