I had had another bench picked out, but I chose this one because it is slightly higher. At 19 inches it is a better height for sitting. The bench arrived very well packed and in perfect condition. The upholstery outside and in is tight and finished well. No holes, loose threads, etc. The legs screwed on with no problem. I have it in front of a queen bed, and it is almost as wide as the bed. I have not measured the inside myself, but I think the dimensions in the Q&A are probably right: 53.5X16.5X7. I have four queen sheet sets (two flannel) in there so far, and only half the bench is full. Note that because it has a hinged top, it cannot sit against anything when open.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? On my screen, it looks a little grey in all the pictures, but it is most definitely an off-white/ivory color. The off-white threads are woven together with a light tan, which gives the color some depth..

I looked online everywhere for a reasonably priced bedroom bench for the foot of my queen size bed. This is by far the best quality and price I found. Great construction and love the tufted buttons. Very neutral and goes great with my khaki carpet and dark wood furniture. The storage is also wonderful to have in the bedroom.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? This bench is ivory.

This is a very beautiful ottoman! I love it and wanted to keep it so bad but it didn't match with the color of the room and was too large to place anywhere else in our house. The intended use for this ottoman was for our "pool area" that was right next to our formal dining space. We had planned to use it as extra seating in our dining. Get this item if you're looking for a sophisticated look, for a great price. But like I said, make sure you're looking for an ivory color and not grey as this appeared to be!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? COLOR VERY INACCURATE - it is an IVORY color

I looked at all the choices here on Overstock for a storage bench, I picked this one because it was just a bit longer than some of the others,it looks great at the foot of my King size poster bed! The storage capacity is very generous. FYI inside dimensions are 531/2 X16/12X 7 1/4 Depth. It will easily hold 4 sets of K size sheets. The seat is very firm and is perfect for sitting to put on socks and shoes. The seat height measures 17/12 not 19 as stated here, maybe the Tufting in top is a bit compressed from shipping? It is still taller than most. There is about a 6' inch clearance space between the floor and bottom of bench, nice for shoes! I could have searched my area stores, and would never have found anything this nice for this price! I ordered it on a Monday, and it was at my door Wednesday morning! Unpacked it at my front door , slid in down the hall in its plastic bag,put the legs on , done in 5 minutes! Very pleased,, Thanks Overstock1
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is called "Magnolia" just like the flower. A creamy bright ivory, no yellow, very neutral.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent at this price!!!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? BENCH HEIGHT IS ACTUALLY 17 1/2" INCHES HIGH
This is a beautiful bench! My room is done in black, white and silver, and I recently ordered a tufted headboard from Overstock that matches this exactly! It looks great at the foot of my bed and has a ton of storage space for sheets and blankets.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exact
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Wonderful quality - easy to put feet on.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The reviews were more accurate than the description - it is certainly more of a woven linen material than a smooth tufted fabric like the picture shows. Luckily all of the reviews told me that, since that is exactly what I wanted.
The bench arrived in perfect condition; attaching the legs was easy. The color is perfectly neutral. The bench is holding @ 50 hard covered, large books in a room that does not have sufficient wall space for a tall book case. I have the bench positioned under a double window. V. Kara, *
We were looking for a light gray bench. The color of this one is bright white with tan/gold-ish threads running through it. The fabric feels pretty plasticy, or like burlap. It's rough. We returned it b/c it wasn't the color we wanted at all (the pictures seem deceptive to me).
We don't use it very often, but it looks beautiful and is very sturdy. We use it for overflow seating when we have lots of people over, but the storage is very useful for things like board games, etc., stuff we want to have closeby. I have a pair of these under my windows and I love them. We haven't gotten them dirty yet, so can't speak to ease of removing stains or anything like that. (I've had these for a couple years.)
I just received this bench and I was extremely disappointed with the color. The product details list this bench as magnolia/gray. Upon opening the box, I immediately came to the realization that this is definitely not gray. The product itself is of great quality. The major issue is it is no where any shade of gray. If you are looking for a white/ivory bench then this is the one. I would return this but I do not want to go through the hassle. I am extremely disappointed with the color and makes me second guess if I will ever order from Overstock again. Lastly, this product is NOT gray!!!!!!
The image appears grey due to the shadows. This is ivory.
First of all I only have one negative. The bench appears to be gray in the photo, it is NOT gray or even an approximation of gray, it is an oatmeal color with some brown. It is sturdy and well made and fits perfectly in an empty spot in my foyer. I also purchased four large ( 24 X 24) pillows to place on the back of the bench to accomodate anyone who might sit there. The storage cavity is spacious and can easily hold afghans or throws. For the price point it was a good purchase.
I love the look of this storage bench, however it did come to my house damaged. The hinges were broken and I called for a replacement and overstock did replace the bench very easily and fast, however the second one was also damaged at the hinges. So I would not recommend it if you plan to store anything in it bc it seems like the hinges are of poor quality.
