Not disappointed in bench. It was easy to assemble and all parts were there and fit without a problem. I bought it for a small guest bedroom for either sitting on or putting luggage on it. I bought two luggage racks from OS so I'm going to put it somewhere else. It's versatile, but personally I wouldn't use it for a cocktail table without a glass top or wooden tray.
I have a 4 years old mutt. It is really difficult for her to get up on the bed since we have place memory foam topper on top of already tall mattress. I have checked out multiple pet steps, but they are just ugly and does not fit any of our furniture. There is no instruction that come with the package, but the bench is easy to put together (15 min). It took 15 min of teaching her to use the bench as step and it works. Perfect size. It is large and sturdy enough so it does not tip over, and it is not too big to place on the side of the bed. There are height adjustment plastic pads on the bottom, but it slides on the wood flooring. So I put on some anti-skip sticker and the bench is locked in nicely. The only feedback is the relatively thin fabric used as commented by other reviewer. The bench comes with extra nail buttons. I think that it would be fairly easy to re-upholster it as it wears out.
I bought this as a replacement for a bench I had in our family room. This one is a little smaller than I was hoping fore, however, it is perfect at the foot of the bed. My family is always in my room watching tv with me and when the lights go out...the dog sprawls out across it. Its fantastic.
This bench took some time to assemble, but it was a reasonable task and resulted in a nice, sturdy item with a nice design. I didn't give it 5 stars, because the upholstery is very cheap-looking. The fabric is secured with nail heads, and there were a few extras in the box. It will be easy to recover the bench with nicer fabric at a later time, but I'm not sure the nail heads can be reused after I pull them off and replace them. Will probably have to find others to use. Anyway, it's a decent quality piece and I'm using it in entry hall.
Oh how I loved this bench. I loved it so much I tried to buy another one but it's out of stock :( Let me tell you for the price, the quality is great. I've been looking for benches and this one is the best value so far. The color is more on the brown side than the picture looks. But it still is neutral that is fits with most decors. The seat is foam, but firm enough to sit on. I don't know how it would perform if you sat on it all day. For my purposes I used it in my walk in closet to sit on when putting on pants or stockings. It's so pretty that I also put it at the foot of a guest bed, only when guests are over. After they leave I put it back in my closet. I will keep coming back to see if it's on sale again.
I originally bought this bench to use in my entryway to sit upon while taking off shoes, but it sat so low I was afraid that someone would trip over it; so I ended up putting it in front of the sofa as a foot stool and it's perfect!! It is extremely sturdy, the design attractive, and the fabric is not as unattractive an the foto indicates. I bought a little tray place on top to hold my coffee or book, and it's perfect. The padding is substantial enough that the tray doesn't tip with my feet/legs on the bench. One of my more satisfying finds!
This is a great product! It was very easy to put together and is beautifully made. I wish the bench was a little bit taller, but other than that nothing else I would change. I must say that the pricture really doesn't show how beaitful the bench is. I am very happy I made this purchase and would absolutely reccomend it. I would also say that the picture also makes the fabric look a bit different that it does in real life, but I actually like it better in person!.
This bench is more than I expected. Arrived very well maintained. Weight is greater than I expected. Well constructed. Color great. I normally buy name brands like Henredon, Thomasville, etc., so this is an excellent buy for the money, plus.
I love my bench, I looked at it for over 5 months trying to decide if I wanted to take a chance after reading a couple of the reviews, I am so glad I did, there are two minor flaws with it but knowing that nothing is perfect I decided to keep it. I have not regretted my purchase one bit. I do plan to recover it once I find just the "right" fabric to go with my sofa.
The styling can't save the poor quality of this bench. The wood finish came chipped and the upholstery fabric is so thin it looks cheap. The foam padding isn't very rebounding so we get little circles all along it from paw prints that stay there until you smooth them out. But the style is quite nice and it's hard to find a bench with nice curves. I will keep and I might reupholster the top.
The size of this bench was perfect for my smaller entryway. I love the curved legs and nail head detail. It really is beautiful. My only complaint is that the fabric doesn't appear to be tight enough, because it dimples just a bit when someone sits on it. All I have to do is smooth it gently with my hand and it goes back to normal. My entry way isn't used every day, just a few times a week, so I'm not worried. If you were going to use it every day, multiple times a day, the fabric might not be right for that.
The bench is a beautiful dark cherry wood base with a middle brown cushioned top. It is a great bench for putting on shoes and comfortable to sit on. The only problem was the lack of instructions on assembly.

i am so happy that i purchased this item, it goes perfect with my livingroom set, too bad it is not a cocktail table, i have it in front of my sofa until the purchase of my cocktail table arrives, people that have visited my home think that it is a table as oppose to a bench. i was very surprise that i could put this together by myself. i would order this item again if i can find room for it. i love my bench and it is so comfortable when you sit on it.
