I was looking for a bench to put near the door to store shoes, and something you can sit on when putting on / taking off shoes. This fit the bill perfectly. The bench is all wood (not composite material as far as I can tell) and took about 10 minutes to assemble. Arrived in perfect condition, just a few natural wood marks/knots/etc. Size is just right. The only issue I can come up with is that the shoe shelves are just about 1" too short to fit most shoes (e.g., sneakers) without having to squish them in a little -- not a big deal at all. Would definitely recommend this, and I'd buy another one if i had multiple doors where it was needed.
This is a great product for the price! Sturdy and ample storage for several pairs of shoes, even men's sizes, perfect for just inside a door or a small hallway. It is definitely not an elegant piece of furniture, but solid wood, easy to assemble and functional.

This is a nice useful little bench that could serve a variety of purposes where a small storage bench is needed. In our case we needed a shoe bench for the hallway outside our apartment door, not so deep that it would obstruct the door or be considered a fire hazard in the hallway. This bench fit our bill perfectly. Caveats: like other reviewers have pointed out, it only holds small and regular sized shoes, sandals, flip-flops, etc. - woud not work for boots or tall shoes unless the middle shelf was left off during assembly, then it would hold just a few pairs of boots. Also, our unit arrived with small dings and imperfections, but not bad enough to return the item, I placed the best looking side out. Overall for the price, we're happy with this bench and we use it every day to take off and put on our shoes outside the apartment door. We even reclaimed one large storage shelf inside, by putting our lowtop (and low cost) shoes outside our door in the bench.

We were looking for a bench to put in a hallway and what I consider a tight area. I had to put it together and it was very easy. The picture was an exact match. Its not super high quality or thick wood but it works and seems to be strong for average sized people. I'm happy with my purchase and would purchase again if needed.
For where we needed a shoe bench, this really fit the bill. We had just enough space for it and its enough to comfortably sit on. Also, we discovered the space between the second shelf and the ground is equally good for another layer of shoes. This worked out to be exactly what we needed. Only issue would be it came with some minor blemishes, right around the mark of where we'd take it back if it was purchased locally, but it is very sturdy with multiple people sitting on it (thought we are all tall and thin here, so small butts!). We think its great.
What color is this bench? Does it have a reddish tone to it? I am trying to match it with a medium-dark brown bed frame. Thanks!anonymouslynamed on Jun 16, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello anonymouslynamed, This beautiful bench has a walnut finish, making it a brown color, not with a reddish tone. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 30, 2014
yes, it has a reddish tone. The color is a very deep mahogany.mscontent on Aug 12, 2014
My husband is 5'11" and this is his bench in the bedroom for putting socks and shoes off and on daily. I've had it for about 3 years and have never had to tighten anything. Very solid.wvdreamin on Jul 8, 2013
We've had two adults (around 350 lbs combined weight) sit on the bench at the same time with no issues.stcoboe9 on Sep 5, 2013
