I am really impressed by the hinges on this. They seem to have springs in them that help you push them up, and they stay up on own. The top cushions are extremely dense, so great for "coffee table" sort of use-- plus I really like a dense seat cushion. Adds lots of storage. I saw this on ********, and almost made mistake of getting from them. their original price on it is $$$+! They had a sale going on, but overstock still cheaper!
I bought this for the foot of my bed. It goes perfectly, but here's the thing: there's already an indentation from me sitting there. I've owned the bench for 2 months. Since the bench can seat 2, there is a noticeable difference in the two sides. Not delighted about that. And no, I'm not THAT heavy. Otherwise it's lovely. The construction looks solid, the storage is excellent and it's the perfect width for a queen sized bed. All said, the bench was a great deal and it shipped to my house in a week.
I like the size and the fact that it's not flimsy - like the ones you see at discount furniture stores... BUT it looks and feels like vinyl... I thought it would feel more like real leather (I've seen bonded leather furniture look and feel like real leather). I don't love it but don't dislike enough to return it. I will probably use it until I find something I like better.
This is a beautiful piece of versatile functional furniture. I bought it as a bench to sit on at the front of a king sized bed, and the storage was a bonus. Seating is comfortably firm, and I can see how it could also be used as a coffee table. I will just have to wait to see how well bonded leather holds up over the years. I don't intend to abuse it, so should continue to look great for a very long time. It looks and feel like something that would cost at least twice as much.
The only reason I didn't give this a 5 STAR rating is the quality of the BONDED LEATHER, other than that it's perfect, as I would have preferred a different type of fabric that was LARGE DOG FRIENDLY, a FABRIC more durable for vacuuming cleaning etc...
The piece looks lovely in front of my sofa. The color is slightly darker then the picture shown, but that's okay. It came in perfect condition, which I was pleased to see being as most large items seem to have flaws and it's always a hassle to return them. The only thing I was very upset about was that this item was left in front of my door and didn't have to be signed for. I wasn't home when it arrived and it was standing on end, blocking my doorway. I couldn't lift this to get it inside. I called Fedex and after a wait for them to try and locate a driver in my area, the guy finally came and took the carton inside and placed it in my livingroom. Any large item should require a signature, especially around the holiday time. If this was left out over night, I don't think I'd see it there in the morning. When ordering anything large, make sure you specify on your order that it requires a signature.
I read most of the reviews for this item and thought they sounded to good to be true, however, I purchased it anyway. Am I glad I did! This ottoman is made very well, true to the color stated, and the hinges are very well made. The only reason it did not get an excellent from me is because I don't feel anything deserves an excellent, but this would be as close as it gets! Needless to say, I am very pleased. It adds a class of warmth and richness to our living room as well as extra sitting and storage?
Nice large ottoman that opens from the middle to store a good quanitty of pillows and blankets. mader of nice quality lerather that is easy to clean. Works perfectly in our family room as a coffee table and is safe for the grandkidds.
