I purchased two of these for use in a dressing room- perfect! Be sure to check dimensions- the bench is quite long and curves narrower at each end(which is not apparent from the photos) so it's not perfectly rectangular although close.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very similar
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality- extremely well-constructured -timeless style
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Close except for no mention of the narrowing at each end- needs an overhead photo shot
This bench is exactly as pictured. I wasn't sure about the quality based on the picture, but after inspecting all of the tufted buttons and nail head trim I would say this bench is GREAT quality. The only negative is that the measurements are slightly off. This bench is about half an inch to three quarters of an inch smaller on all dimensions than what is posted on the website. If you are using it at the foot of a bed I don't think that would matter, but I am using it at my kitchen table and need it to be proper dining height. However, I love the look and quality and price so much, that I am going to keep it and just put casters on it to raise it to the proper height. Also on price, this bench cost half of what I have found on other websites and those benches were smaller. So again, can't beat this size, quality and price for this style of bench. Thanks Overstock!

First off, as other reviews indicated, the upholstery is beige (which is what I wanted) and the legs are a brushed antiqued greyish wood. The bench is PERFECTION. Exactly what I wanted and was received in perfect condition with excellent quality. Was pleasantly surprised with the quality for a piece priced so well. The bench has great style lines and would compliment many different rooms and styles of decor.
This piece is beige, not grey. Otherwise, it pretty much looks like the picture. Also, it would appear that this piece is rectangular, but when viewed from the top the sides actually bow out. It was fine for me, but if you ware wanting a rectangular piece, this isn't it. Overall, it is a pretty bench.
This piece of furniture is perfect if your looking for a small bench! I put mine in the master bedroom under a double window! Great quality and price! I was nervous as this was my first time purchasing furniture online! I am not disappointed!
It's a lovely bench HOWEVER it's not a rectangle - the middle is a nice width but the ends are tapered and are quite thin. Putting it up against a bed or a wall does not look right as the dimensions change. I wish I had known that I would not have purchased it. I will give credit to the company who made the shipping materials - it came in PERFECT condition which is difficult when things have legs.
This bench is beautiful and looks fantastic at the end of my queen size bed. I love the upholstery nails and the material. The color is much darker in the picture, more like a taupe/burlap color, but is super pretty. It comes fully assembled and well-packaged. I am very happy with this purchase!

I couldn't be happier. When I received this bench, it was prettier than pictured and fit at the bottom of my king-size bed perfectly. Came fully assembled which is a real plus for a senior like me.

I'll admit it, I'm very picky. First of all, my father was a furniture upholsterer, and a damn good one at that. So, my standards are high. This bench just didn't cut it. There is absolutely nothing "linen" about this fabric. It's some kind of cheapy linen-look man made stuff. Also, there were several areas around the bench where the wood was "touched up" as it had obviously been whacked with the hammer when the person hammering in the nails had missed. Also, this is not a criticism of the bench, but be warned that it does not have straight sides. It has curved sides, what I mean is it isn't a rectangle. The ends are narrower than the middle. I could not tell this by looking at it online. Unfortunately, I sent the bench back. I'm sure there are people who would be perfectly happy with it (like some other reviewers here), but like I said I'm hyper-picky. I've decided to make my own. When you want it done right...
