Comfort meets function in this beautiful tan storage bench. Built with a durable wooden frame, the bench features a comfortable, button-tufted plush top that lifts off to reveal a convenient hidden storage compartment for blankets or other small items....more
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.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Good, but concerned about formaldehyde warning
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes, but neglected to warn about the presence of formaldehyde
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. :)
Overstock does not weight test Items; however this type of bench typically holds 200 to 250 pounds. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 15, 2013
One of the reviewers mentioned that when she received the bench, there was a warning label saying "it contains formaldehyde." Is that still the case and where/why is it used on this product?oloi02453 on May 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question oloi02453, Plywood, pressed wood, particle board, and medium density fiberboard (MDF). all use glues that contain formaldehyde, and are commonly used in home construction and renovations, and to make ‘economy-grade’ furniture and cabinets. overstockcustomercare1 on May 24, 2013
