This bench looks beautiful in the photos; but when it arrived the quality was very poor. The fabric is not velvet; more like a micro-suede material, which looks cheap. Furthermore, the bench is poorly made. When you sit on the middle there is a crossbar of wood, which is very uncomfortable. Then when you sit on either side of the bench, it sags. I only weigh 120 lbs and even I felt the bench sag. So I could only imagine if a larger male had sat on it. The workmanship is poor. The piping along the edges is crooked. The only redeeming quality is the price point is great- however, I should have been aware. You get what you pay for. I would like to return it; however S & H back to Overstock makes me wonder if I should just suck it up and then try to re-sell it on ***.
I was so happy with this bench. Loved it - it looked great at the foot of our bed with our matching headboard... until this week when, after we've had it for 2 years, my husband sat on it to take his shoes off and - one of the legs completely cracked apart. (BTW - he is not what you would call large or heavy.) There is absolutely no way to repair it, and naturally it is outside of any kind of warranty. So if you're ok with paying $*+ to have a nice looking bench for maybe 2 years if you are lucky, then it is the bench for you. I wouldn't suggest putting any weight on it though. So disappointing.
This bench is cute. The color is lovely and very glam. The quality of the material is not the best, and the bench is a tad bit high for the foot of a bed that is not that high off the ground. For the price I think there might be better options, but it is a pretty bench overall.

This bench looks beautiful at the foot of my bed. The nailhead trim looks great along with other silver accents in the room. The bench is sturdy and wide in size and looks chic in the slate grey color.
