I am new to ordering items online so I was a bit skeptical, but I was definitely pleased with my new bench. The leather is very rich and the quality is excellent! The bench is not as tall as I was expecting, but a beautiful piece and very functional. The best part was not having to put it together.I would highly recommend it.
I've bench eyeing storage benches for awhile, the wife has pillows everywhere and I needed a way to wrangle them. I looked at local stores that were selling them for $450+ and after tax looking at a pretty penny. I was not willing to pay that much. I never buy furniture unless I've seen it in person, I'm a picky guy, but decided to take a chance anyways, and order the bench. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. It is a good looking piece and I'm happy with the purchase, the leather looks great and you have to be really trying to scratch it up. Seems very durable.
Before we got this storage bench, our foyer was a total wreck. There were three wooden folding chairs placed in a row that we used to sit on to put on and take off our shoes and throw jackets. Gloves, mittens, scarves, hats, strewn on the floor, etc. Now, all that stuff goes into this bench, which we use as a bench. Having 6 kids is hard enough without the right furniture to simplify your life. This bench is a stylish and super functional piece.
I bought this bench for our family room as extra seating as well as a storage space. We store all of our family board games inside. It's sturdy enough to take 3 adults on it at once, and the finish is smooth and well-stitched. I am very happy with this purchase and have considered buying another one for a different room.
One warning: if you have cats with claws, they will scratch the finish. It's not super-noticeable unless you run your hands across the surface, but it's there. Regular wear and tear from sitting on it will not scratch it.

The quality of this bench is better than expected. It has served me well for several years and still looks like it did the day it arrived. The hardware and feet are stable, the upholstery has withstood many people sitting and laying on it, as well as being used as a coffee table. This purchase inspired me to be a repeat shopper on Overstock.

This is a nice storage bench. We use it in front of the couch. We bought different feet for it to raise it up a bit and they match the feet on our couch now. There isn't a lot of wood on the corners to screw in different feet, so be careful if you choose to do that.
I looked at the available benches on Overstock.com and settled on this one based on the reviews. I am very pleased with my selection. The bench arrived quickly and was well packaged - no damage. I am very happy with the bench and the added storage. I am using it as a coffee table/ footrest in my livingroom. It works perfectly for that function. I wouldn't hesitate ordering another. The quality and look are first class!!
