  • Makes a nice coffee table!!

    I am very happy with this bench. I am using it as a coffee table; it is the perfect size and goes well in the room. Although you can not see the back side, it is finished enough that it doesn't need to be against a wall. And the top is sturdy enough to handle heavy items. My only complaint, but it is minor, is that the dark stain on the piece is still wet and rubs off easily. Fortunately I noticed this before I put it on our new rug and have rubbed it down several times with a clean cloth and it seems to be ok now. It really is a lovely, well-made piece of furniture.

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    I just received this storage bench and I could not be happier! I have been searching for a storage solution for all the shoes that are left at the entryway of my house. It has taken forever... but I have finally found it! This bench is perfect - the four doors open and I can put all of our shoes, sneakers, flip-flops, boots, whatever the season, whatever the shoe - it's going inside. I've considered other benches and actual "shoe cabinets", but didn't like the open "cubbies" or "baskets" where people would see our shoes and look like something out of a "daycare" setting nor did I think adult size shoes would fit. This keeps our entryway clean and neat and I am pleased to say my husband's dress shoes & sneakers (size 11) fit beautifully! The actual piece of furniture is quite beautiful. The curved arms and little bun feet are gorgeous. The color is MUCH darker than it shoes on the computer screen... I would consider it similar to an espresso brown (I expected it to be more of a walnut color), thankfully it blends nicely with our living room colors. I love it and my husband loves it, our living room looks warm & cozy with this new addition.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Much darker than shown in picture.

  • Beautiful and Sturdy Enough

    This is an exceptional value - nice looking and not very pricey either. Overstock delivery was also very quick. As mentioned, the top may look flimsy but it can support a lot of weight - even two kids who keep jumping up and down on it.

  • Nice Bench

    First time using overstock and had a pleasant experience. The bench came in 3 business days, which was quicker than expected. The bench itself is very nice. As one of the posters had mention, the backing is finished enough to be used as a coffe table. For the price, the bench is worth the purchase.

  • Love it

    I've had this for three years now, and it has held up really well through 2 moves. I absolutely love it!! It looks just as pictured. The only thing I would point out is that there is no middle support legs so it's really not good for sitting on, although we have sat on it occasionally. It's very slightly bowed in the middle, but I think that if you added something underneath the middle this wouldn't be a problem.

  • Neat looking but not very practical

    Nice looking, but a bit inconvenient to open and close the cabinet. Locks to the doors are retro Asian style, so it take a little time to open and close properly. Originally I wanted to use it to store children's school books, but it is a little impractical for daily use. Still a good looking piece of furniture. As an earlier reviewer said, the paint was not dry when we unpacked. Had to use a rag to scrub it down and air it for a couple days to get rid of the smell.

  • Mango Wood Storage Bench.

    The first one was broke on top when we opened it. Had to send it back. The replacement was OK but for the money we were not over excited about the sturdiness of this unit. It dose look nice just to look at.

  • TERRIBLE CHEAPLY Constructed Product worth $20.

    HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED BEYOND BELIEF!! I ordered this bench based on Raving reviews. I was So excited when I ordered it. But my experience turned out to be VERY disappointing. Where do I begin? The package was delivered, I opened the box...and before I could even lift the bench out of the box, it was obvious that one of the sides were already busted off of the frame. But I figured, I will take it out and see if it is "repairable" since it would be highly inconvenient to have to return this. I take it out and IMMEDIATELY notice a few things about it: 1. It is made of very thin, cheap wood. Felt and looked more like imitation wood or veneers. 2. VERY Poorly Constructed overall. The way the whole sides and top are attached together is very cheaply done. That is most likely why it came in the mail already destroyed with the side popped out. 3. When my husband and I were handling it, we both suddenly noticed that our fingers were covered with stain. I COULDN'T BELIEVE THIS! It was like they just assembled it yesterday, slopped some paint on it and threw it in the mail before it was even dry. NEVER had such a ridiculous thing like this happen to me before with all the other furniture I have EVER bought online! 4. Then, as we start looking at the top of it, we notice right away that some of the stain that is supposed to be on the wood runs right over the top of this other lighter colored material which I think is supposed to be the Reed. It looks like a 5 year old took a paint brush and someone told them to paint a straight line and they did their "best". Unless they are a 5-year old Prodigy, you could probably imagine what a 5-year old's version of a straight line would look like. It was just poor and messy. And even the woven design of the reed is not flush. Its very messy. I was hoping to display the bench somewhere where it wasn't embarrassing. But I can't. The final straw was when ... 6. I went to sit on the bench, (being only around 130 lbs) and it sounded like it was going to cave it. I heard crackling noises like if I sat there any longer, I may have gone through it. That was the final straw, because now...ITS NOT EVEN FUNCTIONAL!!! I cannot even sit on this $280-something dollar bench, that is by the way, HALF the size that it actually looks in the picture. The actual seat is comes up to just below my knee. More like a child's play bench then something that you would actually use in your home. What's the point???? I guess the ONLY good thing is that it stores stuff. But I could use a decorated garbage can to do that too. I sure hope they are going to give me my FULL REFUND since when I filled out the Refund Request form, they only allowed me a few words to describe what was wrong with it, and that may not be sufficient enough for them to qualify my reason as valid. I could just sum up my complaint with one word.... GROSS. Whoever is giving this product more than 1 star... I can only be suspicious. Because my experience would not even qualify this purchase for a "0" rating. Honestly.

  • Finely crafted but utilitarian

    This extremely useful storage bench is beautiful. The lines and proportions are truly pleasing, as are the materials. The faintly smoky odor makes it interesting without being overpowering, and imparts a definite character to the piece. It's very well made, as you might expect from the catalogue description - all the doors are true and the interior space is as described. It has quite firm magnets keeping the doors in place, so quite a challenge to a small child, reducing the likelihood of finding the contents all over the floor. I rather prosaically use it for storing cat food and gardening utensils under a low window in my kitchen by the back door, but use the top to display seasonal produce and artifacts. It was a little bit heavy for the delivery man, but manageable because of its dimensions.

Thank you for your inquiry. After doing some research and looking over customer reviews. We would not recommend exceeding 200 pounds at one time.

I'm thinking of purchasing this bench to use as a home for my audio system, with the speakers being inside the bench with the amplifier and some decor sitting on top of the bench. I was wondering if the doors are solid - it looks like they might have vertical openings between the slats. It would be a perfect place for my speakers. It's beautiful! I have an oriental/middle eastern feel to my living room with wool/silk carpets from my trips to the Middle East and China and hope this would fit in. jeannie807 on Sep 7, 2012
