I am impressed with the quality of the bench cabinet. The color is beautiful. The quality of the wood is solid and strong. The size of the bench/cabinet is perfect for my space. Talking about the price, I think I really got a fantastic deal on O.com. I am really glad that I decided on this one. I highly recommend to everyone.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality

It's very solid and the color is gorgeous. I was deciding between this bench and a front entry table and I'm so glad we went with this bench. It's a little wider than I had imagined but it's my own fault since I didn't pay much attention to the dimensions. I didn't put any of the shelves inside and use the cubbies to put our shoes in. I love the fact that our shoes are no longer in plain sight. My front entry looks so much cleaner. My husband and I were extremely happy with this bench even though it took him over an hour to put together. We love the fact that it's solid wood! Worth it!
One of the pieces was split in two when it arrived but rather than return it, we glued it and it looks fine. Also, the directions to assemble were awful but after assembling two other piece from the same "family" my husband knew what to do.

I arrived in near perfect condition and was rather easy to put together. The instructions were easy to follow. The color was perfect and I knew it was not of the highest quality when I made the purchase so I was not disappointed. It will serve the purpose for what I needed, the measurements were correct online so it fit in the space I had planned with no problem. Plus, it is a nice design. One problem that I had while putting it together was the Bottom Support brace was too tall. Hence when you stood the bench upright it wobbled like a see-saw. I had to remove that support bracket for now. I will contact customer support about this issue. On the whole, I would recommend this item.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was actual as online. Very nice.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is of low grade but for what I needed it for it was just fine. I would not allow any heavy items or people sit on it though.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate but it did not list the weight that it would hold, if it did, I didn't see it.
We were looking for a bench for our entry way. The bench is exactly as pictured. The quality is amazing, especially for the price. My husband can comfortably sit and tie his shoes. ( It supports his weight of 220 lbs. without any wobble.) And, when company comes, you can hide all the shoes in the cabinet.
this is a beautiful solid wood piece, and the color is very pleasing. I love the simplicity of the design. It was pretty easy to put together. I prefer the storage without the shelves, but that's an easy fix: don't put them in!
the holes were not drilled in the correct position on two pieces, which made it a complete hassle to assemble. Fortunately my husband is a craftsman and with his tools and know-how, he drilled the appropriate holes and Gerry-rigged it to work. It actually looks great. but it was big change from everything else we have ordered from overstock, where directions are clear and the parts properly prepared.
We got this bench as a way to create an entryway space in our small rowhouse. It is beautiful, exactly as pictured, and solid wood throughout. The shelf inside each compartment is adjustable, and you don't have to install it at all if you don't want to. Great for sitting, too. Glad I ordered this!
Some of the illustrations are not just unclear, they're actually WRONG. Had I not had lots of prior experience putting flat-pack furniture together, it's likely I'd have ended up with the two interior vertical supports incorrectly placed - as they're incorrectly shown in the drawings. Instead, I first compared the spacing for the doors and confirmed that the vertical supports should be attached on the outside rather than inside of the two horizontal cleats on the underside of the seat.
The order of assembly is very, very poorly thought out; several tasks would be much easier completed if they were done before other tasks. All in all, the instructions are so poor that they have caused me to eliminate another Simpli Home product from even being considered. The bench itself is very nice, but the ineptitude of the instruction writers overshadows that fact. Order this product only if you're open to dealing with the assembly challenges.
Thank you for shopping with us questions01. According to the assemble instructions you would have the option of moving them or not installing them if that would work better for you. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 19, 2013

Hi asking0, unfortunately Overstock does not weight test our items. Typically these type of compartments hold no more than 20 pounds each but may hold more. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 12, 2013
How much assembly does this unit require? Is it just a matter of attaching the legs, or is the whole thing in pieces? Thanki you!monalizabelle on Jul 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
