I've had this for months now and I love it. It holds more than I expected. I have two size pillows, an extra sheet set, a flannel sheet, a knit blanket, a quilt (all queen size), and a couple throws inside. We sit on it when putting on shoes and it seems quite sturdy with up to 200 lbs. on top. I bought the brown, and it is a nice addition to our bedroom.
I love this bench because it serves its purpose, but the legs barely stay in, and always fall out if you move it. It definitely is great extra storage space for blankets and pillows, but I'd recommend some better bolts or something. A handyman could purchase this since its so inexpensive and just buy longer bolts or something. I should do that too actually, just been busy. :)
We were looking for a modern storage bench for the end of our bed. Wasn't sure that's the exact decor item I wanted in our room longterm, because we are remodeling. So I bought this bench with price in mind. It has a good amount of storage space, no tears or defects in the faux leather, & it does have a modern edge to it...haven't seen many white benches at all, or ever. So I'm happy!!
Absolutely in love. Only downside is the inside smells horrible, I've had it for a month now and it still hasn't aired out. Also the pleather is very easily scratched ... A tiny piece flaked off the edge but it is unoticable. Be careful transporting!!
As of yesterday I had not received my white storage bench. In fact I received a brown bench. Because I'm not much ion returning items I just ordered another white one. The brown bench is nice. I don't know what I will do with the brown bench when I receive the white one. I recommend that you gently take any item out of box and save it in the event there is a mix up.
I purchased this bench to put at the end of my bed to store extra blankets in AND so the little dogs can get on the bed easier. It is great for both uses. Holds quite a bit, looks expensive and is well made. I sit on it to put on shoes so it is sturdy also. I did purchase this particular bench because it has the lid that will stay open and not slam closed on hands or doggie feet. I love it and think it is well worth the cost.
