The cubbie is just as advertised -- and it's perfect for my room and use. Good appearance. Strength of assembled unit is adequation while not superior. The only problem was, it arrived well boxed but without any printed instructions. Not a big problem if you've assembled furniture of this nature before but did take a bit longer than anticipated since I didn't want to have any parts left over.
We purchased the Montego Maple Twin Cubbie Bench to put at the end of our son's twin bed. In one side of the bench, he houses his books, and on the other, he has some of his toys and stuffed animals in a basket I found to fit. Overall, the quality is very nice, and it is a nice match to his birch wood bed. It is made of pressed wood, and has a maple veneer finish. For a child's room, it is just perfect. I recommend this product. Shipped so quickly and without incident.
This was the first piece of furniture that I assembled all on my own. I had a little difficulty with the center piece, but once I turned it upside down, I figured it out. It was easier than I anticipated and it looks very good at the foot of a twin bed. Of course it is made out of pressed wood so it is not as durable as I would like, but it should survive in my son's bedroom.
This would have received 5 stars if the instructions for putting it together were better. The bench is perfect! Does not look inexpensive and is very sturdy. I was looking for something about the height of a coffee table to use as a feeding station for my two cats. I use the top to place an auto feeder and a water fountain on. All their food, dry and wet, litter supplies etc stores perfectly inside the cubby squares. It keeps everything neat, out of the way and is not an eyesore in our back den anymore. It also makes work easier when we have cat sitters coming in when we are away. Everything they need is in one place. Just love it!
This was easy to assemble; decent quality, and perfectly fit my needs. It goes great with the matching armoire!

Relatively inexpensive and it looks that way. Generally worth the price. I added a bench cushion and protective mat for the openings in the bins so damp shoes would not ruin the veneer. Directions were fair, i.e., a few missing steps and parts were not labeled, which would have been helpful. Took a little longer to assemble than I expected-- about 1 hour. Does the trick for what I need, but a fine piece of furniture it is not.
