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.
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.
This bench was a nightmare to assemble. The cam locks break too easily before they can be tightened down. Halfway through the assembly, I realized I was not going to finish without buying new, higher quality can locks. Now, the problem is that most stores do not carry ones this tiny, so I will have to re-drill the holes to fit larger cams or try and get customer service to send me more of their cheap ones or search the globe for something else that will work. It really annoys me that a seemingly decent piece of furniture can be ruined by the use of flimsy hardware and all for the sake of a few extra pennies in profit. This is definitely not and item I would recommend to anyone.
