The Tahitian Storage trunk is exactly what I have been searching for. It was easy to assemble, is very sturdy and good looking. I may use it outside in Summer, but right now I have my cushions stored in it in my screened in porch. The only draw back for me is that it does not store all of my cushions, but the room is a lot tidier now. I look forward to getting more benefit from it next summer. I am very pleased with this purchase.

This item arrived fully assembled and ready to put outside! It is nice looking and functions well. We use it to store all the kids pool toys and so far so great.

Was looking for outside storage for little things from the patio/pool area. This is perfect. Holds my hose, skimmer covers, extra cleaning brushes, etc. Really like that air circulates and dries the toys etc. Did not purchase for furniture article storage. Does make a really nice extra bench seat.

Absolutely beautiful! Arrived quickly and fully assembled. Looks wonderful on the deck. I have it outside in the weather and expect the materials to hold up well. You could possibly use it for seating but I don't want to chance the vinyl stretching out.

I love this bench--the only problem is that it doesn't hold much. I had to find another, much larger one, to hold my patio furniture cushions. I like this one so much that I decided to keep it for the kid's little outside toys. The dimensions were listed--I just didn't pay enough attention to them and it's also hard for me to visualize actual size from that. If you don't need to store much and could use a couple of seats, this is a great piece!

Well made storage bench is a great place to store shoes outside and sit comfortably while you put them on later. This product looked so great that the new owners of our home negotiated for the bench as part of the sale of our home. It should be noted that ours was placed in a covered patio so no water was falling on it.

This was exactly what I was looking for.All of the other wicker storage boxes were either brown or white and I wanted black . Put it on my porch and was sort of worried about the rain blowing in and getting the cushions wet;but blowing rain came and went and the cushions stayed dry. Love it.

I was looking for a stylish storage for my screened in porch, that would protect cushions and other things. I was not concerned that it was totally water tight, but wanted protection against any rain that would come in. I also wanted it to match my chairs -- which were all weather resin wicker in black. I found ugly plastic ones and all weather resin wicker in brown. This was the only one I found that matched. They style is beautiful. And it was put together by a self-declared "unhandy" guy. The absolutely only problem we had was that there was a problem with one of the bolts, but my unhandy guy's handy sun, magically fixed the bolt. It did rain heavily and the things in side stayed dry. So this was a great purchase and I recommend it highly.

The versatility of this bench makes it a smart choice for pool-side storage. I use it as a coffee table/ottoman for my wicker porch swing under the tiki hut. It serves a dual purpose by storing beach towels (in plastic bags to prevent moisture and insects) and as a hamper for the used ones. But it really earns its keep during parties when it provides extra seating. This is my favorite new purchase this year for quality, price, and versatility. Hubby was shocked at how sturdy it is.

Love this! It is a very nice piece and could be used inside or outside because it is so attractive. The ottoman seems to be very sturdy and high quality. I am using it on my patio as extra seating as well as storing outdoor cushions. Very nice piece.

The chest is very nice and a good size for chair cushions and for a lounge pillow. However, as a deck box for storage I had expected it to be water/weatherproof. Unfortunately, it is not. After our first rain, we had water inside and it took awhile to dry the interior of the chest and the cushions. We now have to remember to cover it with a tarp each evening, which isn't what I had desired. Outside furniture should be weatherproof unless otherwise clearly stated. So, I am disappointed. But, it looks great for a covered area.

This will be perfect for storage on my back porch and seems sturdy enough to sit on.

Very nice storage for our front porch. Appears to be well made and is definitely well-priced compared to similar products.

This storage ottoman is perfect for my pool area. It's wicker look can take the rain, so I can leave it outside. It can hold my pool toys and serve as extra seating, which is just what I was looking for.

Great ottoman and storage box, ideal for our screened in porch, we love it!!! Very sturdy, looks great and has ample room to store chair covers and more. Extremely happy we purchased this piece from Overstock, literally saved $150.00, thanks.

Bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift. Living in the midwest, we obviously have not used it yet for outside usage around the pool. But can report that the quality of the piece appears sturdy and I like that the top has a hinge to keep the lid open. I liked another review that suggested placing plastic storage bag inside to protect towels. I think that will be an excellent idea for towel storage when we do eventually use outside. But the piece looks so nice that I have no qualms finding a spot inside until weather permits otherwise. The price was great for such a good quality and compared to other deck boxes I had priced.

This is a nice storage ottoman. I'm storing my pillows in it for the winter on our outdoor screened porch. I should have looked at the dimensions a little closer when I ordered. It is much shorter than I expected. It can't be used for a bench as much as I thought it could. Overall though, the quality is good and does what it is intended for. Shipping was awesome! It arrived within 3 days of purchase--pleasantly surprised!

I wound up using it in my three season porch instead of outdoors as previously planned. A very good storage unit for games, cushions towels etc....can also be used at the end of a bed as a hope chest. I am curious as to the sitting weight capacity. It will seat two or three if not too hefty. Am pleased with the purchase.

I put this in my glassed- in porch for storage. It looks fine at a distance, but I was taken aback by the very plastic look of it up close. I guess from the pictures I thought it would look and feel like actual wicker. For now it will serve it's purpose, but it's not something I would particularly recommend.

The flimsy box was so damaged that I photographed it right there on my porch where the shipper left it so I could document the condition before I opened it. When I opened it, all parts were wrapped separately in brown paper and tied into a neat bundle but the frame on the edge of the lid was bent. I decided to straighten it myself by standing on it on carpet instead of the hassel of return/exchange. Other than that, all parts were inluded and it was easy to put together and everything aligned properly. The hinge pin directions weren't clear but I think I figured it out so they shouldn't fall out. It is not strong enough to serve as a bench; only very small children (toddlers) could sit on this. I wanted to use it for storage for pool towels, googles, etc. and as a 'coffee' table in my wicker seating group on my screened porch. It looks nice, blends with the other resin wicker I have and is very roomy - dimensions are accurate.
