the smell out of the box was strong and took several days outside to air it out. The compartment space is large and can store several blankets, books, toys etc.. and the style is right on. The height is larger than I was expecting so its not as comfortable for me when i want to rest my legs on top of it.
I have this bench at the foot of my bed and it looks great there. I love the extra storage I now have in my bedroom. The quality seems very good and the upholstery feels nice. I would recommend this bench to anyone looking for a small ottoman/storage bench.
