Based on my experience, I would not purchase this very expensive bench. It is beautiful on the outside but the internal construction is very poor. The hinges were broken upon arrival and to my surprise it was found that the internal part of the bench is made of cardboard so the screws could not be screwed back in. In addition, I believe something is wrong with the hinges themselves as they do not move easily; I believe this was mentioned in another review posted.

I bought this item more then two years ago. And at the time I thought this looks different then anything out there. But it was over price because I found this same item at home goods and it was cheaper and the leather was softer. When I got this I open the bench inside the wire open inside was rusted, but I keep it because it was free shipping.
Well made and sturdy. The reason for not rating it 5 stars is because it is difficult to open. The lid has a snug fit so without a finger strap or some other mechanism to assist in opening, I have to work to get my fingers under the lid to open it.
Love this piece; we use it at the foot of our king sized bed to hold the giant shams & decorative pillows that you have to remove to get some sleep. We put felt pads on the feet as we have new hardwood floors. It has a safety hinge so the lid won't slam down on a child. And it looks fabulous. Exceeded expectations.
This bench arrived in perfect condition and there was almost nothing to assemble. I attached the legs and that was it. It's very well made and looks like an expensive piece. The lid is secure and will not come down on it's own and pinch little fingers. I highly recommend this piece.
Cream/ivory bench arrived in perfect condition. Looks sleek and attractive, has strong hinges that help maximize the usable space inside the lined storage area. Putting on the feet took only a minute. It's not a particularly soft sitting surface but isn't intended for lenghty stays. We are completely happy with it.
The storage bench is great - very good quality, elegant modern look and the color is as described. I was concerned about the color based on other reviews however I was glad to find out that it is indeed creme as shown on the photo. The storage space is also pretty adequate and it comes quite useful. Altogether, it is a beautiful pics of furniture and it is worth the money.
I am so pleased with the tufted leather storage bench purchase. It came well packaged and without any damage. It is made nicely and I agree with other reviews the color can change from a true cream to more of a ivory with yellow tones based on the lighting. I found this out as I moved the bench from one room to another. The spring hinge is a little stiff but I am pretty sure that with time it will loosen.
