Overall this is a nice bench with a good amount of storage space inside. I was concerned about the materials, however, when I saw that it came with a warning tag that the item may contain formaldehyde. If it was easier to return items, I would have returned it out of concern for the toxic chemicals. The storage inside is nice, but it has an odd, odor inside, so I don't store anything like clothing that may absorb the smell. I was dismayed that there was no advance warning in the description of the item about the presence of formaldehyde. Because of this, I will not buy any more furniture from Overstock.

Looks great at the foot of our bed and provides a convenient additional storage space for spare sheets. The only downside is the same as with most of these kind of benches... if you have it flush up against a wall or bed, to open it you need to pull it out a couple of inches so that you have clearance when the lid tilts up on the hinges.
LOVE IT!! The color was spot on what I was hoping for! STURDY!!! Nicely made. Shipped nicely packaged, and it's heavy. The only issue I had was putting it together. I tried, and I tried to screw the first leg into place, so much so I was sweating. I gave up and moved onto the other three legs that went in easily enough. When my husband got home I told him I was at a loss, he looked at it and found there was a chunk of wood blocking where the bolt went. He took it out and VOILA! Perfect bench for the end of our son's queen bed! Nice enough I'd buy (and might buy) another one! Perfect size, amazingly strong, no worries about our 10 year old use it as a launch pad. :)

The bench arrived when it was supposed to and all you had to do was screw the legs in. It was sitting at the foot of my bed in just 10 minutes after I took it out of the box. It's just like it was advertised and you can't beat the shipping cost!! I'm very pleased with my new storage bench!
When this arrived it was very easy to assemble and is perfect at the foot of my bed. The seat padding is a bit stiff, The materials used are good quality. The interior is roomy enough...I purchased to hold some extra pillows and blanket and its perfect for that purpose.
This piece of furniture is well worth the money. It arrived a few days after we ordered; it took us 10 minutes to put the legs on and voila! I ordered it to go at the end of our bed in the master bedroom. It is great. The storage holds extra blankets and heating pads, etc. It's very handy. I ordered it several months ago, but it still looks brand new--just out of the box. It wears well and is fairly comfortable as well as functional and pretty sturdy too. I would recommend this to anyone--it's a great accent piece and we have been very pleased with the quality.
When this arrived it was very easy to assemble and is perfect at the foot of my bed. The seat padding is a bit stiff, but hopefully that means it will hold up over time. The materials used are good quality and the interior is very roomy for storage.
I had never purchased any furniture on-line before and was a little hesitant; but when I received the merchandise and put it together I realized my concern was not warranted. The bench looks great and I've received many compliments on it. Thank you Overstock.
Bench arrived in the time noted, well packed. I had a little trouble attaching the legs, but I am mechanically challenged; my husband would have had no problem. Looks great in the space (guest bedroom). Glad I shopped Overstock.com B4 I settled on a less acceptable alternative from a local chain furniture store.
