Receieved very quickly. Almost put it together by myself - the interior storage hinge on the bottom had to be completed by my husband. We are using it in our living room beside our dark brown leather sectional, near the front door. We leave our shoes by the door so, not only is it the perfect hiding place for our tennies & boots, but it also provides extra seating for 2 people. AWESOME! Better then any other pice of storage furniture we own - AND the hinge holds the top open until you close it even with pillows/laundry on top.

We were hoping for the bench to be used in our breakfast nook, on two sides of a table and just under the picture window ledge-NOT an appropriate use for this product. This is more of a small storage bench for an entry or corner of a bedroom- way to small to sit at the average table. Bummer because I loved the upholstery and really don't want to pay the $$ for the "Coventry" seating elsewhere.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color and microfiber/suede material we great, true to picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. average quality, Iike the material, but the back attaches very flimsy and once assembled it is still obviously two pieces as the back and seat are not the same width- use the zoom view to see.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Notice that the seat height is not given, only the back height...divide the full height by 2 for the seat height...it's a small bench!
My husband and I were looking for a pair of chairs for our tiny living room and the two benches we bought are just perfect for our space that can't accommodate full size armchairs. For a put-it-together piece, this seems really sturdy and long lasting, even the hinges. Super easy to assemble, too! It definitely feels like a bench seat... a cushy bench seat, but a bench nonetheless. It is compact yet roomy for the sitter and at a good height. The storage is a wonderful bonus for toys, throw blankets or shoes. And the faux leather looks more expensive than it is.

The chair arrived several days prior to the estimated date given upon ordering. However, I was aware of this early arrival because of the tracking provided. The box seems way too small when I first saw it, but the chair disassembled is packed very tightly. The instructions were simple. The chair assembled quickly. It is a good chair; it is slightly closer to the floor than I prefer and it is fairly wide. Two adults can easily sit together, not relax, but sit. I do wish there was some type of retaining mechanism for the back bolster, it comes off rather easily when moving the chair, but not when it is stationary. There is storage under the hinged seat for a blanket or whatever else you would wish to store. Overall, the chair does what it needs to do.

This bench was to be used in the kitchen the description says the seat is 18", not , actually more like 14-15"., so I have to purchase additional legs and hope they fit. Other than that it is a very cute little bench, made well and keeping my fingers crossed that I can make it work.

Ultimately I was very happy with the chair. It is sturdy, big, comfortable even for two people, and the storage is amazing!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The fake leather is kinda cheap looking but it is a sturdy chair with a ton of storage! So much more than you would think from the picture.

We bought these for our bedroom instead of two chairs. I liked the storage underneath the seats. There were instructions but they are HORRIBLE. Basically, "put legs on and attach the hinges for the seat to lift". They didn't show HOW to attach the hinges. So, just be ready for that. Once assembled, they look great. They are NOT comfortable at all. Very stiff. We wont really be sitting in them (mostly for decoration) so we don't really care how uncomfortable they are. But, if you are looking for comfort I would say look elsewhere.

THE BUTLER STORAGE BENCH IS MADE VERY POORLY AND I WOULD NOT HAVE ORDERED IT IF I HAD SEEN IT. THE OVERALL SIZES ARE MUCH SMALLER THAN DESCRIBED. IT IS A TOY MADE FOR A KID'S ROOM. IT IS LOWER TO THE GROUND, AND SMALLER OVERALL. IT IS NOT TRUE MICROFIBER BUT A CHEAPER VERSION. I SENT IT BACK AND $22. WAS DEDUCTED FOR SHIPPING. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS ITEM. BUYER BEWARE.
I was so excited to get my chairs the reviews all said how great the chair was. The chair is not that great, the idea is great but the chair is not. They go together really easy but you have a fifty fifty chance that you won't have the same gap I had on one of my chairs due to the screw holes being slightly off. The quality is a little less than I expected as well as the comfort. The legs are made of black plastic and look extremely cheap. Just over all I would purchase these again or recommend to anyone to purchase them, extremely disappointed DO NOT BUY
While this is a cute little storage bench to hold my son's toys, the dark brown in the picture is ridiculously dark or I was sent the black in error. I bought the dark brown leather look but I really believe this bench was sent in black. It doesn't even closely match our existing dark brown furniture however, it does match a black leather sofa we have in another room. I spoke with customer service and that was not helpful. I was told they show I was sent the dark brown. I know what I have and it's not dark brown. For the price, I should have received the correct color but like the style and function so, I'll make it work. Just be prepared to receive someone else's interpretation of dark brown.
Overall the chair bench as expected. However the feet maker the bench sit too low. So I purchased some wood 4.5 inch sofa feet from ebay and now it is perfect. The feet that come with it are plastic and cheap. I expexted I would have to replace the feet of the bench. Worked out great. The Bench was not hard to put together. I did it myself and I am 68 years old

I ordered this bench for a small living room space. Upon opening the box I was pleased at how well and compact it was sent out for shipping. I purchased the Leather Look Brown. It was easy to assemble, even with the instructions for placing the hinges missing. I was done with assembly in 10 minutes. The leather look of the material and construction leaves a little more to be desired considering the price. The piece should be half of what overstock is selling it for. Not uncomfortable to sit on but defiantly gives you that ottoman feeling. Overall a cute piece and quick solution. If the price was marked closer to the look of the foundation then it would be a hit.
7 min 46 sec.....From box to display....thats how long it took me to put this together. That is my kind of furniture. All I can say is wow!! I truly feel I got an awesome deal. Color is great. Size is perfect. The storage is just another added bonus to the deal!
This is perfect for our toddler son's room!! We got the blue which is a lighter navy shade but darker than pictured. It's a nice color. The height is great, he can climb up on it and it's large enough for one of us to sit on and read with him. The storage is an added bonus!! Very simple/basic assembly. It's not very comfortable but meets our needs. Definitely would recommend for a child's room or entry/hallway but not necessarily as living room furniture.
I had hoped this piece would be larger than it was, but had a hard time imagining sizing when I bought it. I wanted extra seating in my living room, so this gives it without taking up too much room, but it does sit closer to the ground than the rest of my furniture. I do still use it, and I find the storage area very convenient for extra sheets and pillows when someone stays the night. But if I had to do it over again, I might not buy it.
Very fast shipping and arrival. Excellent quality. Additional tools not necessary to assemble. Reuires three hands (or four) to get hinges on and aligned well but very straightforward with no tricks. Looks great. Serves our purpose as a storage/dressing chair in my wife's California Closet. Highly recommended.
This is the cheapest piece of furniture I have ever seen. Bought it and shipped to my son for a spare bedroom. He just laughed when he sent me a picture and said it looks like a piece of poorly made kids furniture!! I didn't get to see it in person before he threw the packing away or it would have been shipped directly back to Overstock!!!
I needed a storage bench for a small area and this fit the bill. I had read the other reviews and agree that it is not very soft. It had a good sized storage area and it opens and closes easily and conveniently. Good value for the pirce
