This brown wooden storage bench makes a nice addition to any family room. The microsuede lining is soft enough for even the most delicate of hands, and the large storage compartment is ideal for storing a variety of items, from bed linens to clothes....more
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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color on site is similar to shade of product, may be slightly darker in person, is a pretty dark gray
Please tell us about the quality of the product. great so far
How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate
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!!)
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? was darker and more textured than I thought but looks good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality - sturdy and solid

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.

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 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 bench arrived on time and only required the legs to be screwed on. Took seconds. The fabric is decent quality and the color is a slate gray. Very pretty and seems nicely constructed. Overall very please with this purchase!

What is the weight limit for this bench + is there a different weight limit for seating vs storage?frenchie10 on Aug 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
According to the manufacturer the weight limit for sitting on the bench is 200 pounds and the internal storage would be about the same. Its for household items like blankets and such so it shouldn't exceed 200 pounds for the safety and quality of the product. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 4, 2013
I am now confused. I've had this item in my shopping cart for several days (deciding whether to purchase or not). Now my cart has updated the description from Slate Gray to Slate Brown. I am not interested in buying a brown bench. And now the full description has two lines for the color. One says slate brown and the second line says slate gray. I see the question below asking about the actual color, but with the updated item description I have to ask again, what color is this item?
Thank you!mlomax81 on Oct 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
