We got this to put at the end of our bed as a storage bench. We have an older dog who was having trouble jumping up on the bed so we opted to get this for her to use as a step instead of one of those ugly dog ramps. This was a win-win because it's study enough for her to hop on and doesn't seem like she will tear the fabric. And we love it - it's stylish and we like having the extra space to store pillows and blankets. The ottoman is definitely more blue than grey, unlike the picture, but it still worked with our color scheme. My husband didn't complain about putting it together so it must have been easy enough :)
Our bench arrived yesterday - it was our first Overstock.com purchase. The bench is nicely constructed and has ample storage space. The color is quite a bit darker than it appears on the website, but it still goes well with our decor. Just take note that the blue undertones definitely come out more in person. I did not hear any complaints from my husband about assembling it, so construction must have gone smoothly!
I considered buying this particular product for a couple months. I was worried about how the design and size would work at the end of our king bed. After looking around at other storage ottomans I finally purchased this one and am very happy with it! Easy assembly.
Just received this bench today. Seems sturdy and well made. The colors are way off from what was in the description. I don't see any gray at all. More like a teal blue and dark blue and yellow. If you are looking for specific colors I would be careful ordering this. I will keep it because it is ok for the room I have it in and not worth the expense of returning.
I know everyone sees color a little different but this reminds me of the whole yellow/white dress saga; this looks, to me, like it's made of greys, blues and yellows (mostly grey and yellow). When it arrived, the majority of this is a darker blue, kind of a teal hint, an odd color that I am realizing is incredibly difficult to match. However, it looks good next to my brown leather couch so we kept it (finding a rug that does't clash has been the bane of my existence, though). When I had my husband send me a photo after it was set up, it looked just like the picture on the internet, which is completely different in person. It's really pretty, though, and seems like great quality. Tons of storage inside, and it's comfortable to sit on when you've got extra company over. Overall, we thought it was great for the price and thankfully the color was fine for us.
The top was much more rounded than pictured and the fabric was darker than expected. It was such a disappointment I returned it. I lost over $** because not only did I pay return shipping, Overstock took away their "Free Shipping" and stuck me with that cost too. I won't be purchasing anything with them again for this reason.
I love everything about this ottoman except for the fact that it is smaller than I wanted. I'm still going to keep it because its a great addition to my living room but next time I order something I'll need to remember to check out the details closely.
This bench looks really elegant and just what I wanted. It's more than just a pretty design, the inside is surprisingly roomy -- it can hold three schoolbags and jackets. It's a great deal for the price, it looks like a high-priced piece of quality furniture, but the price is totally reasonable.
I think this is beautiful and great quality. The inside is smaller than I would have hoped, but had I read the measurements I would have known that. It's still awesome and I would recommend this to anyone. It fits great at the end of my queen size bed.
