Very nice looking. Easy to put together. Functional. Nice and stable (if you have little kids who would otherwise topple a regular coat rack!). We did spray the cushion with Scotchguard because it looks like the kind that can stain easily (the cover is removable though). And we also put stick-on non-slip grips on the bottom of each leg to prevent it from sliding across the hardwood floor and a piece of stick-on felt on the back so that it would not scratch or stain the white wall behind. I recommend this item.
I bought this for my daughter's home where there wasn't an entry closet. It doesn't take up much room, but holds a ton of stuff. It's perfect for sitting and taking boots/shoes on and off. She put baskets on top for scarves and mittens. I shopped around and this was by far the least expensive yet greatest capacity tree bench, and everyone was very pleased with its durability and overall functionality.

The assembly was easy. I am a 63 year old female so when it came to assembling the back I had to enlist the assistance of a neighbor man. It was just to heavy for me to manage alone. I would suggest having 2 sets of hands for that part. The assembly directions took be a little time to decipher, but I studied them several times and adapted to the pictured instructions. If you just keep looking back at the picture of the completely assembled rack you'll get the hang of how is should look as it comes together. I am really impressed with the quality of the seat cushion, and the ultra suede seat covering. It's attractive in my hallway, makes a nice presentation with my other furnishings.

As other reviewers mentioned, one of the holes was not drilled properly. We don't have a powerful drill, so we had to improvise and it took an HOUR to get that one stubborn screw into its hole. The rest of the assembly was very easy, but you might want to have a big power drill on hand if you're going to buy this. Assembly aside, the piece is attractive, a good size, and very functional. I don't think it'll hold up to a lot of heavy use, but if we're gentle with it, I think it'll last for a few years.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's a little shaky, but I think it'll hold up if we're not too hard on it.
This is the perfect solution for a welcoming foyer! Stylish, easy to assemble and comfy! It has been a wonderful addition especially in this never ending winter weather. Hats on top, scarfs stylishly displayed, a place to hang a damp coat and a comfy cushion to sit on when removing shoes! I have been extremely pleased with all my Overstock items. They are reasonably priced, arrive on time and look great. The measurements were right on and it fit in the space perfectly. 5 stars at least for this hall rack.
My husband always used to leave his clothes and shoes in a pile. Those days are gone! This hall tree makes a great addition to a bedroom. It was simple to assemble (I did it myself) and is extremely sturdy. Plenty of hooks for clothes, a shelf on top and another under the seat. The seat is a comfortable place to sit while putting on shoes that are stored below. We have used it daily for several months now, and it has not shown any signs of wear.
Was easy for me to put together, did it in about 30 minutes. I like the looks of it but everytime I sit on it the darn thing seems like it is going to tip over, it seems like it is too top heavy. Would probably work better if you could anchor the top to the wall but I am unwilling to put a hole in my wall for it so I moved it into my mud room and use it infrequently as opposed to being in the foyer where my guests would use it. I don't want them to feel like it's going to fall over on them.

This is an average metal tree bench. It does its job... let's me sit when I'm pulling on/off my shoes... hangs my jackets, scarves, etc. However, it does not feel extremely sturdy.

I use this by the entry from the garage. It is ideal for giving immediate solutions to where to place coats/boots/shoes when entering the house. It could have been a tad sturdier, and I have already lost the round cap to one of the coat hangers. Not a big deal, but something to note. Having the seat makes it so easy to take off/put on boots in the winter. I use a waterproof rug under the bottom shelf to deal with runoff from boots, etc.
We bought this about 3 years ago and it fits nicely in a small area as we enter from the garage. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because when you sit on bench, whatever is on top shelf can fall on your head, wobbly. So we keep top shelf empty but love the lower shelf for shoes.
