Nice-looking, pretty-good quality bench, particularly for this price. I am especially pleased with the look of the faux leather, the nicely-sewn, tight seams, and the sturdy feeling of the bench. I would recommend the bench to those looking for a small, rich-brown, faux leather bench. Two small issues to consider: As someone else had said, I'm not sure that the bottom of the bench would hold heavy objects, but it clearly can be filled with linens, blankets, towels, etc. Also, the inside does have a strong, new-car smell to it, so I've not yet put any linens into it. Instead, I have left the bench open for a few days and have sprayed the inside lightly with a fabric freshener. The smell seems to be lessening in strength, but I expect to leave the bench open for at least 7-10 days.
We spent a lot of time looking at benches. Read the reviews and ordered this bench. We are so very pleased with the product - much better then expected. Well made and looks like it would cost a lot more. Perfect size for our spare bedroom. Love it!
Originally bought this for my daughters toys. Didn't realize the lid completely comes off. I thought it had a slow close lid. So now I use it at the bottom of my queen bed for our extra sheets. Which it fits 3 sets if folded queen sheets to give an idea of how big the inside in. Looks nice. Not heavy at all. I'd be afraid to put anything too heavy in it as it may come through the bottom. But overall it's great for the price and came within a 3-4 days from Cali to md. Would recommend.
I've seen a few others of these purchased by friends and this one is much better looking (i.e. looks like it is of a higher quality). Bonus points, it was also cheaper than theirs! An impressive amount of storage can go on in there, which is pretty great. All in all, great buy - you won't regret it!
The ottoman is made well and looks nice. The only downfall I have with it is the old one I had did have hinges inside the lid which made it nice when opening instead of the lid coming off like the new one I just purchased. It is just something I will have to get used to, other than that, I am very happy with my purchase.
Got this as a "step" to help our corgi get up and down from our high bed. It is a compact size that worked well for us. So far it has held up reasonably well to the abuse of being used as a step; abuse can be harsh especially when we have guest dogs over and it sees a lot of stomping. Two of the three buttons popped off after a couple of months, but we were able to glue them down with Shoe Goo glue. Super value -- quality is great for the low price and it also stores our spare bed sheets (2 big sets, but not much room for anything else!).
