The bench arrived quickly, in perfect condition, ready to use right out of the box. The leather upholstery is soft and the padding is very comfortable. This bench is sturdy and the hinged top works well, opens easily and stays in place until closed. I purchased this to use as a dining bench for my 3 grandchildren who are here twice a week for dinner. They have a hard time sitting in 3 chairs jammed together so this seemed to be a reasonable solution, the storage was an added bonus to give them a place to keep their treasures. I was concerned that it was a bit low for them to sit on and considered getting an additional cushion to add height and protect the cream colored leather. They actually sit better at this lower height (feels a little like a lunch counter) and don't have near the amount of spills as before - I guess it put their faces closer to the plate! When they outgrow it I intend to use it at the foot of the bed in the guest room - barring too many blueberry stains that is.
this is a beautiful piece, useful. matches my bed exactly in color, material and style. i was able to identify the match because the reviews said the color was creamy off-white, this was correct. i get a lot of praise for this piece and i placed it at the foot of my bed.
I was trying to match an off white leather sofa I have and it needed to be exactly the same color off white which is very hard to do. If it did not have to be right near it . It would have worked. the quality is great. I wish I had another place to put it. I did return it because color was not exactly same as my sofa which I knew would be a tough thing to match perfectly.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was too hard to tell and it did not match my leather sofa
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very high quality I was upset the color was not perfect for me
How accurate was the on site description of the product? good
My title says it. This was a little more expensive than some of the other benches listed on Overstock, but it was worth the extra money and it still costs less than a furniture store equivalent. It is important to note however, that this is NOT leather - I mistakenly believed it was, based on the description that characterized it as "bi-cast leather". The material description on the bench itself reports it as polyurethane. While writing this, I looked up "bi-cast" out of curiosity. It is defined as a material made with a split leather backing covered with a layer of polyurethane that is applied to the surface. So what you see isn't actually leather, it's plastic. Unlike leather, it won't improve with age by softening and developing a patina. It's more likely to crack and peel instead.
That said, I wasn't truly expecting quality leather for the price, I just wanted a simple bench for the bedroom to hold blankets and such, and for this, it's well-suited. It does need a few inches offset from the wall or the bed as the top requires room to open fully. The hinge seems solid and stays up when opened. The bench didn't have any significant odors upon arrival, but items stored inside it developed a little funkiness after a few weeks. I might try to leave it empty and open for awhile, which isn't a bad idea if you choose this item.
It's an attractive piece; what really sold me on it was the piecework-type surface, which I think looks a bit more refined than the solid wrap, especially for a nonleather surface. The color seems true to advertised, it is a easy-to-match cream that has a bit more grey undertone than yellow. I have a lot of cream-based bedding, and while the bedding all matches well despite not being purchased together, the bench in contrast has a greyish cast. Not a problem if the bench is not adjacent to the bed (mine is not), but if you have a discriminating eye and want this at the foot of the bed, it may bother you.
Far more than you ever wanted to know about a simple bench. Overall, the price is right and it works.
This ottoman is a truly great buy--it comes fully assembled, is a nice quality, and the perfect size to fit at the foot of a queen or king-sized be. The storage area is ample for extra blankets and pillows. The height is just right for putting on socks and shoes. The leather is reasonable quality for the price, and the color is true to the photos. Couldn't really be more pleased!
Purchased for the foot of a king bed, fits nicely, has strong presence and is well proportioned for use at that spot. The bench is quite sturdy (feels solid when you sit on it) and has good storage capacity. We like that the padding comes all the way down the sides which prevents running into sharp corners when walking around the bed. We use the bench daily for putting on shoes and socks - so far so good but it's only been less than 1 month since its receipt. Be warned ... the color is definitely not what we expected. Yes, it's off-white, but in such a way that it gives off a greenish cast. Not the best for our room, but It works ok, so we are keeping the piece. Others, however, may find the described color off putting. I's not exactly what one would expect in terms of an "off-white" color.
Hello mayasfan, This bench is so beautiful! This bench has been weight tested for up to 250 pounds, but it should be okay if combined weight of two people is 300 pounds. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 6, 2013
