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!!
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 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.
For the money they are serving my purpose. They arrived quickly. All assembled. One was unusable... this 2nd had a tiny tear and the hinges were installed poorly. With both benches I tightened the hinges that opened and closed the bench. I also removed the hinges that were supposed to hold the bench open. I use them for storing photo albums (1) and art supplies(2). Once in use I decided to install wheels. They are now safe, serve my purpose for storage. I would have preferred that the assembly was professional.
It truly is perfect. Looked long and hard locally nothing with the style and fabric. The white faux leather is exactly what I want. This and the light fixture i bought months ago make my bedroom which is a collection of old family pieces.
Color, size and covering very nice. Hinged top, tho, is questionably going to be functional for long. I should have sent it back for possibly a better functioning lid, but had destroyed the box and really loved the bench. Looks great at foot of our bed and holds lots of blankets. Comfortable seating to put on shoes too.
The first bench I received was damaged in shipping. Overstock quickly sent a replacement item. The second one I received had no external damage but the hinges weren't attached because part of the internal structure of the box wasn't assembled; the piece of wood the hinges screw into wasn't there. The holes were "drilled" through the lining and the screws were screwed into the lining with nothing behind it. Rather than sending it back and waiting another 10 days for yet another one, I fixed it the best I could. The reason it's not priced very high is because it's poorly made. It looks nice, but probably won't last.
As others have commented, this ottoman sits a bit lower than another one I just ordered from Overstock. Still, is looks nice at the foot of my bed. It was not packaged well for shipping. A puncture hole is in the back on he top section. I called Overstock and we worked out a deal where they reimbursed me a bit so I could try to have the damaged section fixed. I didn't want to return it and go through those hassles. Overstock was very friendly and helpful. It provides sufficient storage, a couple of blankets and a pillow or two. Nice appearance and appears well made. Not that comfortable for sitting,, but nice to have a place to sit when putting on shoes.
i put the legs on turned it over took a picture then discovered in the pic that the leg was bent. it actually BROKE. so i took the legs off of it and am using it without them tooo much of a hassle to send it back. not tooo happy with it
