I always like to clarify a bit what exactly this bench looks like, for those that can not tell from the picture. First, the bench is a very white color (not off-white), with a slightly shiny finish and it is tufted, meaning that there is stitching on the top and sides. That is difficult to tell in the picture. The tufting is into 8 squares on top and the sides. It is very nice looking and though it is "leatherette", the look is elegant enough to where no one will think you got a cheap piece of furniture. The legs are a dark black wood and attach very easily. Delivery is through UPS Ground, not UPS freight, which I absolutely abhor, as their residential delivery in my area is horrendous. However, the piece is well packaged and assembly is a breeze, literally just plug int he wood dowel connectors and screw in the legs (the rest of the trunk comes assembled). It offers tons of storage and makes a nice bench for the living room if you require additional seating.
Tiny tear at the corner, can't really notice, has to stand -2 inches from the bed to open the top. Need 2 hands to open the top, somewhat difficult to grab the top to open. Can easily fit 4 large pillows. Reasonably accurate describtion, looks massive in my bedroom with platform bed but seems to be expensive looking and really clean off white color.

Got it very quickly about 3 days. Was wrapped in cloth type material surrounded by foam container within the box. Fits just right at the end of my queen sized bed with about 6 inches of space on each side. Sits about 2 inches away from the bed to allow the top to fully open. There was a small slit in the top on the rear about 1/2" long but since it's on the rear and I don't see it I won't repair it.. Took about 15 minutes to install the legs using the included allen wrench. Perfect for storing comforters etc. and if you use space bags the skys the limit. All in all a good bargan for such a huge storage bench.

Searched an searched for a "foot of the bed" storage unit for our guestroom. Something to keep linens and blanket for guests. Everywhere I looked I couldnt find anything in the width I wanted (48-54") unless I wanted to pay over $500 which I didnt. Found this beautiful storage bench on overstock at an unbelievable price! Assembly was a snap...all we had to do was put on the legs. I am so pleased with this purchase. It came in white and in red. I got the white one.

the bench itself is perfect for what i need it for. i have a set of sheets, 2 queen size pillows, and 2 decorative pilliows in it and could probably squeeze a bit more in. I have a queen size bed and the length of the bench takes up almost 3/4 the length of the foot of the bed, which i like because i've already started to stack clothing that needs to be put away on it plus there's room for me to sit and put on my sneakers. i like the wooden feet. The style matches other fairly contemporary pieces i have. The inner container is plain.but i guess no one sees it so not a big deal. The worse thing about the bench was the box it was shipped in. it was so flimsy i'm surprised the piece didn't get damaged at all. the cardboard was ripped in places when it was dropped off. i think thats the only negative i have.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? it matched perfectly - pure white !
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the quality was fine. the hinge keeping the top up looks a bit iffy but it's worked so far the several times i've opened the the bench
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? i believe the description was accurate
I received the bench very quickly, unfortunately it was damaged. Overstock, took care of it though and sent me out a replacement . The only thing I might change is I might remove the feet. That would lower it enough to use as an ottoman. I would order it again and refer it to a friend.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was represented well.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is ok. I wist the leather was a little more substantial.

Received this bench today (right on time) and I am more than pleased. It is a true bright white as most reviews said. Seems to be put together pretty good. The legs were a little difficult to attach as the holes did not align just right, but my husband managed and had it ready to sit on in 30 minutes. There is a ton of storage in this bench which is what I needed it for. I do have to say that my bench was not tufted on top. It is sewn together in squares ( a lot of seams) but the seams seem tight and should wear for quite some time. The hinge to hold the lid open worked exactly as designed. I would not hesitate recommending this great storage bench!
I really like this bench, it is much larger than other benches I was looking at with a similar look and price range, it is very sturdy and can hold my entire stuffed duvet and two king size pillows- the appearance is very nice and it does NOT show cheap, my only problem with this, is it is NOT a true, it is definitely a cream color/off white color, other than that, it is a great bench- my husband didn't notice it wasn't white, so hopefully it won't drive me too crazy!
Beautiful bench. White synthetic leather that very much looks like real leather. The white is true white with somewhat of a shine to it. Very sturdy. However, the lid is difficult to set to stay up while you're working inside the bench. It keeps falling down no matter how I set it. Other than that, the bench is absolutely perfect and I would still buy it even if the lid doesn't stay up. I know I can do something to fix the lid problem.
Lovely pure white synthetic leather storage bench looks much more expensive then what we paid for it. While the box that it came in was quite dented and distressed, the bench itself, was free of any damage. It is approximately 15 ins deep and we use it for storage of extra bedding and linens. It looks lovely in our bedroom and currently sits at the foot of our king-size bed. Would enthusiastically recommend it.
I ordered this lovely storage bench for my granddaughter as a Christmas present. It arrived with the box opened and the packaging material hanging out of the box. At first it seemed O.K., then we noticed 2 small slits in the leatherette covering, right in the front of the bench. It appeared to have been made by a sharp tool or knife. I notified Overstocked.com and they immediately issued me a refund. I am pleased with their on-the-spot attention, and for that reason I will be a recurring customer.
