I thought it was a great buy when I got it- perfect size, great storage, pretty design. However, after having it for a year, the middle busted out when my 9 year old sat on it. Granted, it gets quite a bit of use in our mud room, but I was not expecting the wood in the lid to literally split in half.
I would buy again, but I would treat it as a decorative piece, not to really sit on.
For the value, it was "just ok". I like that it's nice and large and fits at the end of our king bed. But the disappointing part was the fabric - it is very similar to burlap! Rough and that same unattractive color. I will end up recovering it in the future, but still...for the value, the quality is good.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? not quite the same - the color is darker in person
Please tell us about the quality of the product. just ok. I was expecting a lighter color and the fabric to be softer - it reminds me of burlap! In fact, I could swear that's what it is.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? just ok
This is not a high quality piece of furniture, but it looks good and works well, especially for someone on a budget. I even received unsolicited complements from friends about how good it looks. I've read in other reviews that I should expect the padding to be hard and it is. I don't use this bench to lounge on, so comfort is not an issue for me. I love the storage capacity and it fits perfectly at the end of my queen size bed. The only assemby required is to screw on the feet. Overstock delivered on time as usual.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was as I expected.
