For my purposes, this little bench works well. I am using it in my bedroom to hold the bed cushions at night. We are not sitting on it, so I don't know if it would hold up with a lot of weight. The color of the suede matched perfectly, and it went together very easily. It took me less than half an hour to assemble, and was light weight enough that I could carry it by myself.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was accurate.
I would recommend this bench to all my friends. I have it in the foyer of my summer home and it looks beautiful. I thought I would have to re-cover the seat because of the color but it matches perfectly. It had all the parts and pieces and was packed well. I am very pleased once again with Over Stock.Com.

I wanted a short bench to use in my entryway for putting on/taking off shoes and which also would coordinate with other furniture in that area. This bench meets that need quite well, and I will keep it, but I don't feel the quality of this item is comparable to previous items of furniture I've ordered from Overstock.com. The welds on the most visible top bars, where the cross pieces meet the straight bar, are sloppy looking, though they seem secure, and the black metal color is splotchy and has scrape marks and chips from shipping. The seat fabric is good and should hold up well under regular use; however, the padding leaves a lot to be desired and is very hard, much like sitting on a board instead of on a cushioned pad. This is one of those times when you get what you pay for, and the low price of this item reflects it's overall quality. It did have one extra set of hardware, so that wasn't a problem for me, unlike for other customers.

The bed bench was missing 4 screws so I purchased some that would work and painted them black. The only color in stock was red so I reuphostered it to go with my comforter. It doesn't have a ton of cushiness but it"s ok in a pinch. The bench was easy to put together and so far it's holding up well.
4 stars, only because I didn't receive enough hardware to put it together, and when I emailed customer service to request them, somehow my email didn't send. So... it's barely put together until I get enough short bolts to fully stabilize it, but it was really easy to put together and as previously mentioned, it was exactly what I expected.
The bench looked as expected and, overall, I am pleased with the purchase. The only disappointment was that it did not come with all of the fasteners needed to assemble the bench. The bag of nuts and bolts was short two of each. We found similar parts at thehardware store, but they did not come in black like the others. I used a paint marker to color the bolt head and nut. It wasn't difficult and looks fine, but I could have done without the hassle.Now that it is assembled, it makes a nice addition to our bedroom.
The bench was perfect and all that it was advertised to be. I added two decorative pillows which helped to tie in the bench with my room decor. The service I received from Overstock.com was excellent, particularly because I was short a few screws and they took immediate action to fulfill my request. The price was also very reasonable for the quality.
We have an iron-framed bed and have been looking for a foot-of-bed bench forever to match the bed and we are totally pleased with this product. It is exactly as shown and looks fantastic in our bedroom. It is quite sturdy and classy looking. I got the Sage Microsuede Cushion and the color is so pretty and blends with the maroons and browns in the bedroom. We couldn't be happier this this bench and highly recommend it!
This black metal frame bed bench goes perfectly with my black metal bedframe. The seating is comfortable. The overall appearance is wonderful - a very satisfying purchase that gave me an "ooh-aah" moment when assembled and put into place.
