I purchased this bench for my bedroom. It is both sturdy and beautiful. I was looking for something less expensive, but since it was the exact style I was looking for I decided to order it and I'm glad I did. The legs have a bit of a weathered look which I think adds to the piece. The storage area is lined with a soft black material and the hinged lid stays open without having to hold it up. It is really well made and came fully assembled.
I'd been looking for a tufted bench for our bedroom and this was exactly what we were looking for. Many others looked too boxy but this still has a delicate look along with the room. The bench has much more room than I expected. It was easy to assembly, is firm, and matches our bedroom wonderfully. I had actually seen the same bench on One Kings Lane for 2x the price of this one on Overstock once you factored in $*** for shipping (highway robbery!). Am glad I was patient as it showed up on Overstock.
