I bought this to keep in my bedroom to store shoes in, and to sit on in the mornings as a dressing area. I measured the location and needed a bench that was about 36 inches wide, and this fit the bill. I have 2 small children, and knew getting it in white was taking a gamble, but decided to risk it. The material has held up well, I have had it about 3 months now. It's fairly thick and seems pretty durable. One thing about this bench that I did not see mentioned prominently is that it is not a hinged bench, the top removes entirely, like a shoebox lid. This has not affected my use of the bench, but wanted to mention it for clarity.
This is a really great piece.. a little small for a coffee table (which is what I intended to use it for when I purchased it), but it looks perfect in front of my bed. It is pure snow white and the feet look black to me but are very small and are hardly noticeable, so don't let that throw you. Beautiful ottoman for an amazing price.
The product looks great, it fits perfectly into the spot where I intended to place it. It looks nice and the material looks and feels great. But it smells like chemicals. The smell was so strong that I have kept it on my porch for a week trying to remove it and it still smells. So unfortunately, I haven't been able to actually use the product yet.
I thought the top of the storage bench was smooth, as it appears in the picture. But it is buttoned on the top. Thats no big deal, because I still like the bench and it seems to be built pretty solid. Quality appears to be good also. I really like to use it for a foot stool when watching TV. My granddaughter uses it for a seat. I would recommend to anyone who needs a foot stool which can store a decent amout of small items, like toys.
We wanted a "end of bed" seat and storage. This bench seemed perfect and it was/is--almost. As another reviewer noted, when it arrived, one leg had come away from the bench. Although it was not totallyoff, it still wasn't "right". However, all I did was put some super-type of glue on it, applied some weight while it set, and now its fine. Had it not be for this little hitch, I would have given it 5-stars. It looks much richer than the cost, matches the color of the wood of the bed, and is perfect for its space.
I love the style of this bench, perfect size for smalll space. Quality is good enough for the price. I ordered it in white and it arrived in good condition, no scratches and clean white. It doesn't look cheap and I'm happy with this purchase.
I needed extra storage, but the space I had is quite small, and most of the chests I saw were too long for the space. The faux-leather is not at all plasticky looking or feeling, and best of all for me, no assembly required. It's a little too hard and too arrow for me to sit on comfortably, but it would be great for a child's room.
This bench is very cute, however upon arrival it did have a rip in the leather at the very bottom. I don't intend to go through the hassle of returning the product, as it is a very small tear and if positioned against a wall, no one would be able to see it. It does appear it was done prior to shipment, as the bench was packaged quite well in the box. Otherwise, very soft and seems sturdy.
I love this bench! I use it as an ottoman with my Abbyson White Convertible Sofa and it looks great. The storage inside is sufficient for odds and ends and the fact that the top can be flipped so you can put snacks and drinks on it is a plus. It is also sturdy enough to use as extra seating. I would recommend this multipurpose bench.
