Add a classic touch to any room with this vintage antique bench. This item has a white body with a beige fabric-covered seat for a two-toned look that is also comfortable. Curved legs and intricate carvings finish the piece....more
The bench looks exactly as described and shown. Gorgeous! It does need placed 4" from the wall to open the hinged lid. This is the only reason for my client's return. Not enough space in the room to leave the bench out 4". Also it came completely assembled! I recommend the bench based on its quality and design. Just be sure the 4" isnt an issue. The description does not say the bench is a wall hugger and is not. Therefore, I didn't give any thought about the distance from the wall. Yet it does need clarified apparently. :) Hope this helps!

First bench delivered was damaged beyond repair. One leg was completely splintered off. Overstock was prompt to replace it. However, the second bench arrived with a 2" black mark on the fabric top. This had to have been noticed by someone as the top is covered in saran type of wrap. It appeared to be a grease or felt marker type of stain. At this point I was tired of dealing with damaged products and decided to just keep the bench and put a decorative pillow over the stain to hide it. I did try to remove this stain with fabric cleaner but was unsuccessful. In all fairness, I can say this is the only product I have ever received from Overstock that had any issues at all and I do a tremendous amount of shopping with this site. This bench is very light and not the quality I would have expected. I thought it would be heavy wood but in all actuality it is probably made of bolsa wood or some other type of very light weight wood that will not stand up to wear over time.

This is a nice storage bench with no assembly. There was a strong odor of paint/chemical when it arrived that took several days of airing and the application of cedar oil to remove. A nice addition to my guest room.

I'm very interested in this bench, but I'm concerned about the interior odor that has been referred to. Does it go away & when?
Also, can this bench be sat on?
Lastly, would it be difficult for me to add a different fabric top?hkrazy on May 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I think I just wrote you about this bench :) The odor will go away I would just let it air out for a few days. You can put a piece of ceder wood in this and that should help take away the smell too. Yes this bench can be sat on. Benches like these typically hold up to 200 pounds. I'm a very crafty person so this seems like it would be easy to recover for me :). Just so you know if you alter this item in any way this is non-returnable.
I hope you enjoy this bench it is very beautiful!

Will someone please note in the item description, the bench needs to be placed 4" from the wall for opening the storage compartment? I will put this in my feedback. Some only read product descriptions though. This can make a big difference for people that don't have enough room. Also please confirm whether or not all benches are fully assembled. My client's arrived with absolutely nothing to attach. I did notice the only other person that left feedback at this time said the lid needed attached. My client just received his on the 7th. Could be something new. Thanks so much!thepersonalshopper on Mar 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The bench comes fully assembled. However, the top has plastic attached all around the material on top and is very hard to remove all of the plastic. Also, the inside of the bench has a strong odor that just will NOT go away so you really do not want to store blankets or pillows in it (which is what I purchased it for). The bench is made of this really light weight type of wood that is not going to hold up to much wear.diane95946 on Mar 26, 2013
