i was very pleased with the bench. it was as described and was fairly easy to put together. no problems. this is not an expensive bench, so you get what you pay for. overall, it is very nice. i received the benches in just a few days. very well handled.
I needed something for my office, which is all maple, to keep all of my aquarium supplies. This does the trick nicely. The design of how it is assembled and held together is smart and very secure. I have put my fair share of furniture together and this system is a bit different and a LOT BETTER than most.
We bought this for an out-of-the-way hallway in our old house, and threw our shoes in the cubbyholes. Now, in a smaller apartment, it's in the dining area, and we have put canvas boxes in the cubbyholes for storage. Either way, it's a good-looking, useful piece.
Assembled well. But had to use wood glue to obtain closer seal in one area. Overall, good product for the money. Looks great in the sunroom!

I purchased this piece as we have the other bedroom pieces. We put it together relatively quickly but when we stood it up, the front bar snapped off. It didn't really matter as the front bar was basically decorative. We are using it for storage. I didn't remember to be light-handed with these pieces. It's not furniture that one can be rough with.

I think this would have been a great piece of furniture, but two pieces were broken due to really shoddy packaging. I am 8 months pregnant and was just looking for a toy box bench to put together easily and with issue. I was very disappointed to open the box and find it broken. Now I have wait for new parts.

This is a very nice bench. We purchased this for our finished garage for shoes. We are satisfied. It was a bit darker in color than expected but now a big problem. I also overlooked the fact that the baskets are not included, but we bought three nice file sized baskets that fit nicely.

I bought this bench to use as storage & extra seating in my dining room...looks very nice with storage baskets I purchased to put in the cubbies and it holds all of my placemats/tablecloths/etc. I was not super pleased with the "laminate" wood look on the top of the bench but for the price you can't beat it! I intend to put a cushion on the top anyway. Was fairly easy to assemble except wish it had marks on the back board to nail it to the bench...it would have been easier. Overall I would recommend!
When I saw this product , I had to have it. I like the color it's not to bulky and I use it at the end of my bed. You can use it for whatever you want, it makes a nice accessory to my room and I would recommend this buy, and not to mention the price was excellent and didn't take that long to put up.
I purchased two of these last year. I decided to stack them and buy two more. I store my fabrics in them. They are great. They are both nice looking and functionable. They hold a lot of material. I am very glad that I bought them and they are a great buy!
The cubbie bench is EXACTLY what I needed and expected.The assembly was relatively easy (even for the mechanically challenged) All of the parts, instructions and hardware were included. The bench's function is almost endless, from the bedroom, to utility/mudroom to the bathroom--providing add'l ATTRACTIVE storage. I am very pleased.
Maple is hard to find in a bench like this. Used it for playroom/office area to keep it clen and tidy. Had to request new top as first one was damaged. No issues there. Good value for the money. Measure the cubbys before you shop for baskets for best fit.
