Still enjoy this bench every day. It looks great under the window in my french country styled home. The only negative was the feet on the bench had some nicks. It's a very comfortable bench.

I am very happy with this Hillside Oak Country Bench. I like the quality, style and wood finish. The directions for assembling the bench were straightforward and we had no problem putting it together. It looks great in our foyer! For the price, this is a nice piece of furniture.

This bench is very cute and very close to what I wanted. The wood legs are more of a dark wood than a light brown. This may not match other pieces if you are going for a French country look.

looks great in our entry, deeply padded, rich color, we live on a very rural country road and the ability to shop at any time and have the bench delivered was a real treat, the reveiws were a big factor in helping make my decision to purchase

The instructions are terrible. If I had not jsut built the antique country bench before this product, I would have been lost. For example they send an allen wrench and none of the screws require this tool. Go figure. It is nice when it is put together though. Make sure you kind of lay it out first before you actually put it together, I had to take it apart after I was finished.

I like the look of this bench a lot. But the corner of the bench came damaged and discolored upon arrival in the package. I have been so busy since i just moved cross country, I didn't have the time or energy to ask OverStock to issue me some credit for it. I doubt this online shopping site will do anything to compsate me anyway. I stop buying anything from OverStock after I got this bench because i don't want to get something damaged during shipment again and take the time to make ship it back or suck it up. Online shopping is suppose to get a better deal since the site doesn't pay for rent to have a physical store. But i fine the price on the site is still too much for many made in China items.

The wicker is substantial and the profile is low. I used it as an end of bed bench. Works well, though a tad wide for that purpose. Works in my room due to amount of room I have, but may not for all. Can be used as coffee table as well obviously - works great with French Country Decor. My product arrived with supporting under slats broken - likely due to shipping. Other than that - if Overstock agrees to replace or send new ones - it is perfect for my purpose and decor, at a GREAT value.

I am moving out of the country. I have furniture that will be shipped over seas via container. The package came in wrapped in a secure way, this was a bonus for me! Aside from the packaging, the bench is exactly what I was looking for! the color, the design is soo pretty and the wood is not too dark but a brownish color that goes so well with my Lexington bed (light and dark brown wood). The color was like a Burgundy or maroon but like soo pretty in person, honestly I thought I would be getting a bench and recoat the fabric because I couldn't find a color that matches my bedroom, overstock saved me! Best customer service (you won't believe me unless you experience it for urself ) I miss such courtesies from employees. Oh and the price is unbelievably low compared to such good quality (they send coupons every week so make sure you sign up your email ) thank you over stock like seriously your the best!! Totes!!

I bought this for my mother for Christmas because she had been looking for a ottamen for her not so large living room. The piece is still a very good size though with a great rustic look for her country decor. It's super easy to essemble becasue the only thing that you have to do when it arrives is scew on the legs and whalllaaa. If you are looking for a piece of furniture that is very versitile - this is it. Looks great under the window, as a footrest, and doubles as a coffee table with storage space.

This is a wonderful little piece of furniture, as the title suggests. First off, overstock just always amazes me with their speedy delivery and I was very excited to get this piece. I wanted to use it to store my preserved wedding gown, but it's a bit small for that, but it still looks wonderful at the end of our cal king bed. It's so functional, that I could see us moving it elsewhere in the house if we got tired of it being in the bedroom. I am more of a shabby-chic, country french type, and this bench is pretty "modern" looking; however, it's so mellow that it really meshes well with a variety of styles. I know that linen is very popular right now, but I worry that when we start a family, we might have some sticky fingers and then linen would be much more difficult to clean. I love this little ottoman, but it's not a hand-made piece so, to me, it doesn't deserve 5 stars. There are small imperfections that I honestly didn't expect for a $300 ottoman, but I know that you can spend quite a lot more. All in all, a wonderful buy and I don't regret it one bit. Lastly, I'll say that I read a lot of argument over the color - uhhh, maybe I don't have an "eye" for subtlties but it is definitely creme just as described. I know we will enjoy for years to come - there is a timelessness to it that is very attractive and it looks stunning against our hand scraped hardwoods. Added bonus - it comes with a cat trap. :) Our cat climbed in the empty shipping box IMMEDIATELY. I hope this helps someone make a decision: I'm the most indecisive person ever so reviews really help sway my opinion and I feel like the tufts were a nice touch: personally, I liked that they weren't covered in buttons but to each his own!

I've had the bendch for months now, and it's so wonderful. I love the storage compartment which keeps the room clutter free, and the kids love it because is where they sit and put their shoes in th emorning. I love it, is a great piece and it matches everything in my home. I can put in the kitchen, living room and it looks nice. The assembly was not bad at all, picture illustration is what you get, and it's pretty easy to follow, but make sure to lay out all the piece first so you don't get confuse. But my overall satisfaction for the benches tha t purchase is pretty great, and I'm satisfied. I would definitely recommend to this to friends and family.

We got this to clean up our living room to put video games and blankets in. I must say it's deeper than we originally thought and the quality is outstanding. We were hesitant on it being a pop-up that it would hold a person to be used a seat as some mentioned, but it can hold me and my kids just fine, and we total over 400 pounds. The kids run, jump, and crash it into all the time and it holds up just fine. For a small fix to a clutter problem, this is definitely a must. I was hesitant at first but now I'm glad I made the choice to purchase it.

The bench looks great in the entryway and we love the drawers. The only criticism I would give is that when assembling the bench, some of the drilled holes on the drawer pieces were too big for the screws so they did not catch when screwing them in. Other than that, putting it together was pretty easy.

My bench arrived on time. One of the sides was broken. I called the company. They had my information on hand and the replacement piece arrived within a few days. Overall I am very satasfied with my purchase.

The bench is a fine addition to our home, but assembly was a real challenge. It's basically a million pieces with weak supporting details, poor illustrations and a foreign language description of how to put it together.

Overall, happy with bench, but putting it together was a challenge. The instructions were shrunk in sze to fit on a half page and the detail was so small as to be unreadable. If you have carpentry skills or an aptitude to know how furniture should go together, then you'll do fine, otherwise get a friend to help interpret the diagrams. As an added structural security, I opted not to use the cheap school-type glue/jpaste provided and instead used construction adhesive which should help hold the bench together for decades. It wouldn't hurt to buy a dark brown furniture stain pen to color in a few spots on the bench where the factory stain was light and didn't exactly match the rest of the bench.

The other reviews that indicated this was difficult to put together are true. Bad directions and lots of small pieces. So only get it if you are good with figuring things out.turned out fine for where I wanted it, but the screws holding the drawers to the bottom of the bench keep falling out. So I don't think it will last a long time. But for the price and since I had someone to help put it together it worked out ok.

The bench fits wonderfully in our front hall. I had a tough time finding a bench that was narrow enough to fit in our space, so was happy to find this one. The instructions are well done and easy to follow. The color of the bench is true to the picture shown and it when built, looks very "*****.
