I ordered this to contain the clutter of the remotes, disks and characters related my son's TV gaming system and it works great! Top opens and closes smoothly and the hinge keeps it open to get things in and out of it. I was going to push it up against the wall, but it has become the new game playing seat for him and his friends. When he is not using it, it makes a nice foot stool. Lines are clean and simple and the faux leather is of decent quality and the dark brown color is true to the picture. I felt like I got a good deal and it arrived very quickly too boot!
This bench is sturdy and adequately cushioned. It is a good height to sit on to put on shoes. It would have been nicer if the hinges held the top open and had a "soft-close" instead of a "free-swing" (or you might say free-fall because it opens up not out).
The bench is fine. But I have 2 problems....I ordered a brown bench and the box said brown, but the bench is white. It was too much hassle to try to return it and wait to get money back. I needed the bench now so I had to keep it. Also, one of the pre-drilled holes for the legs had no threads in it to screw in the leg. Had to use a nail gun to attach it. Even with the leg problem, if it had been the right color, I would be happy with it.
I needed storage and bench for the end of the bed. The space was narrow already, so this was perfect. Do be careful, over time the hinges on the inside will make imprints on your pillows/quilts etc. When the lid closed the hit your stuff. Not a stain... just an imprint.
This bench is a true brown color. It is not as dark as espresso wood. It has a solid construction. Only the legs need to be screwed in. It has a good height for sitting, though it is a little hard and therefore not super comfortable, but for the purposes of putting on shoes it is fine. The storage space inside is not so deep but it is enough to stow some sheet sets, or towels or other odds and ends. However, certainly not big enough to place extra standard pillows or puffy comforters. Hinges keep the top open sturdily so there's no fear of it clamping down while you are retrieving things. All in all, it probably works well with most decor and is functional.
bought this to use as a coffee table, it is small and easy to clean. The storage is nice for blankets, magazines, movies all the stuff that clutters our living room. shipped fast, only had to attached the legs. Great price, good purchase
Great bench! It's as described on the website. It's a deep rich espresso brown color that matches the bi-cast leather platform bed that's also in the room. Both items were purchased from OS. The lid works with a hing that remains open while you need it to be. Plenty of storage. It's in the bedroom because it matches other pieces in the room but I use it to store winter hats, scarves and gloves. :) It reaches the exact height of the bed's foot board and is convenient as a seat option in the room. It's easy to move when I need to vacuum. The order arrived in 8 days and was packaged well. No damage was found when opened. Stitching and overall appearance make it look like a quality piece without paying a fortune. Very happy with this purchase and would recommend it if you are shopping for this kind of item. I've had it 7 months and have had no issues. It looks great in the room and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another if the need presents itself.
