Worst online experience ever. Defective parts have resulted in the thing lying half-assembled in my foyer for a month. Meanwhile, I can't get in contact with any human being at Overstock to troubleshoot except by a series of unhelpful emails. I was given the contact # for someone who was supposed to assist and he never answers his phone or returns messages. I was told replacement parts had been sent out but they never arrived. If it were feasible to repack the item and return it I would have done it a long time ago.
After reading the previous reviews from other people about how difficult it was to assemble this bench we were not going to buy this product. However, we decided to give it a try. Halfway through assembling this, we came to a stop. One of the arm rest did not come with holes drilled into it like the other arm rest did. We tried drilling our own holes but the screw was not going through the wood. All in all, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.
This product is just OK. My husband can corroborate with the other reviewers that the construction leaves MUCH to be desired. Ikea is better quality. The color is spot on, and the design is very cute, but beware that it's much shrimpy-er in person than this photo leads you to believe. Ours is damaged such that the top doesn't close all the way. The top part (where you sit) sits open about an inch and will only go down if you place something on it.
I've contact Overstock and they are in the process of sending a replacement. I'm still undecided on whether or not I'll keep it. :/ If you have an apartment and need this for small space/wall get it - if it's for your HOME, I'd keep looking.
Unfortunately, as soon as i started trying to assembly this, screw holes were too small for the pieces. After re-reading the reviews, I didnt want to risk getting into more problems as i continued putting together, so i returned this product. It's a pity because the piece looks lovely, as does the quality... however, when you have holes that dont fit/line up, then it's a waste of time.
Are you a very little person? Like under 4 feet tall? Then this bench might work for you IF you can assemble it. It's MUCH smaller than what you'd expect.
We've bought a lot of stuff from Overstock and overall have been quite happy, but not even close with this.
Assembly is NOT easy, regardless of what others (probably fake) have said. The instructions were off and many of the "pre-drilled" holes were not pre-drilled so I had to drill them myself which isn't difficult, but in the end, it just wasn't worth it.
The hardware was about as cheap as you can get.
Total waste of our time so we're sending it back.
If you're like 3' 10" and live in a shoe box, then this might work for you.
Living in a small place this bench is multiple purposed. It has a cushion and serves as seating for more people. The storage area in the bottom holds things I regularly carry in and out (i.e. boots, scarves, shopping bags, umbrellas, etc. Not only looks good in my room arrangement, but serves a good storage space as well.
