I love this bench at my front doorway - I needed a place to put the endless pairs of shoes from my family of 3. This is great to sit on for putting on/taking off shoes and you just throw them in the hinged cover to hide them - which stays up by itself if pushed open all the way- no falling on kids fingers! Is exactly what I needed! I put a plastic boot tray in the bottom in case of wet and dirty shoes going in from the 5 year old. Very large - will hold a lot of stuff!!! (Shoes!!)

Love this storage bench, it is a great size, holds a lot inside, is well upholstered, and seems to be well made overall. It is maybe a tad darker gray than pictured. The fabric is sort of a microsuede, but has a sort of leather texture to it if that makes sense. It isn't smooth. It arrived all assembled we just had to put the feet on. I'd recommend this to a friend.

This bench is perfect for a bedroom or other area with limited space as it is not too wide. The material looks and feels great. The price is unbeatable. It's comparable to benches that typically cost upwards of $600.

We put this in the study near the coat closet - a perfect easy place to stash their book bags as well as a comfy see for taking off and putting on shoes. It feels really solid, even for larger adults. Can't beat the price and the color is great - neutral darker grey. I would recommend it.
It is slightly darker than the picture, but I read that in other reviews. It was incredibly easy to put together, the legs just twist on. It is spacious and looks like it cost much more. I looked at a lot of different storage bench options and at this price, you won't get a better qualtiy. A great find.
I love storage benches - this one I am using at the foot of my queen size bed and it's a perfect fit and color is nice - brown suede kinda look to it - I love the fact it has the hinge so you can have open as you store your items - I use it for my blankets/sheets for our bed. Just had to twist on the legs and done - arrived quick and in perfect condition - well pacakged.
I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a good quality storage bench. I have had this bench for a couple years now (I know, I should have reviewed it before now!) it is holding up very well. The fabric is very durable. I would call it a textured micro fiber. I would consider the color closest to a slate gray than a dove gray -if that helps anyone decide! It holds a lot of "stuff" trust me on this. By itself it is very solid & heavy. With our "stuff" in it took 2 strong men to move it!
Color is not brown nor grey kind of a greige. Microfiber material catches dog hair easily. Bench is heavy. Feet are weirdly shaped-not straight up and down kind of angled. Lots of room for blankets and pillows though so it works for us.
I bought this based on the reviews and the picture. Overstock said they changed the picture to reflect the actual piece. But the bench we received is a lot darker with much more gray than brown. It doesn't even come close to the picture. But there is a lot of storage space for our blankets and it's still a neutral so it works for us. The piece is well constructed and I love that it will be easy to keep clean. I certainly would have thought twice about buying if the picture would have shown the actual color though.
I love this bench. It is a great price for a good size and quality storage bench. However it is not slate grey as stated. It even says it on the box but it is more of a chocolate brown. I had read other reviews so expected this. Either color was ok with me but if you are looking for grey, this isn't the bench for you.
I bought this bench to put at the end of my daughter's queen sized bed. I needed it to be not as wide as the bed so that she could turn from the end of the bed and not run into it. Also this is her last room make-over, so a mature not childish look was necessary. It arrived with the hinge on. I only had to screw the legs on. The seat is very firm and able to hold her large teen friends. The material is a soft, imitation suede that feels luxurious. The storage is very deep. A toddler (or two) could easily hide in there. The seat doesn't sag or leave butt dimples. It's nice and firm, yet very comfortable. Finally, the price is unbeatable!! I love it.
This product is exactly what I was looking for as far as size, color and it arrived quickly. However, when I received it, it arrived slightly damaged. The lid was not aligned and so it is not flush with the main storage compartment. It looks like it might have been dropped on its corner. I don't have the time to return to exchange. But at least the hinge wasn't bent to far to still open and close. Oh well.
Perfect color and size storage bench/coffee table for my small apartment. I needed extra storage and a coffee table.so this was perfect! The color was a little darker than the photo like some other reviewers stated, which is what I needed! The wooden feet are sturdy and it took 5 minutes to put together. My only problem was during shipping something pierced the cardboard and damaged my bench. It was small and I didn't want to return it, so Overstock gave me a credit at my request. The customer service "Chat help" was fantastic & quick!
I absolutely LOVE this bench. Not only did it arrive practically overnight, it was exactly what was advertised. The color is beautiful and the storage space holds much more than I expected. The low price makes this item a steal!
