This product lasted for about 3 months before all the seams started splitting. I realized too late that the seams on top of the ottoman were barely holding together; eventually, they split and the padding started spilling out. I have patched and patched it to the point that there are more patches than original seams! Would have been better if the top seams were all double stitched to hold. It's been about a year now so I am getting a new ottoman. Very disappointed with the quality of this product.
The bench is very low to the floor. The lid is flat on the inside so you lose some much needed storage space. Holds a queen size comforter and one set of sheets but that's all no room for decorative pillows. They have to lay on top leaving the room looking a little cluttered.
I just got this storage bench hoping to use it as a coffee table. It's beautiful- quality material, the hinges open and close quietly and seem like they won't smash little fingers. I'm probably going to return it but only because it's a little narrow for the space I wanted it in. The width is only about 19" and although I read that in the details I didn't do a good enough job measuring. It really is a great value though.
Although this piece is well made and comes fully assembled (aka with the legs on) I bought this bench because it was slightly longer than the other ones for sale on overstock. Well once it arrived I quickly realized that the measurements were wrong. It is only 48" long and at the most 15 1/2" tall. We have a very tall bed and this thing just looked teeny tiny at the foot of our bed. It has already been returned.
