You will be stunned if I told you that I bought this piece years ago and I still love it. If is a bench I used under my window and stores all my holiday platters. It is sturdy and the color is beautiful. The internal latch was chipped after years of use but it can't be seen from the outside. This bench looks exactly as the picture. It is very beautiful. I did not give it a 5 star because it has a few wood imperfections. It is a great piece and functional for storage and sitting.
I bought this bench more than a year ago. It arrived quickly and fully assembled, but one of the top back corners was damaged. I decided to keep the item to save myself from the hassle of returning a big item like this. It is very pretty in person and I received a lot of compliments from my guests. The cushion is bright red like many others before me have noted, but I love it! The storage space under the bench is great as well.
Wow!!! received this bench within a few days of ordering it and fell in love with it as soon as it was out the box. It's very rich looking, constructed nicely...goes so good at the window in my living room. Love Love Love It!

This piece really adds elegance and color to any area of the house. It is great for one person to use as a shoe bench. The product did have some chipped wood when it arrived on the edges but it isn't terribly noticable, and it would've just been a hassle to send it back. The cushion is comfortable but the color is a deeper red than shown in the picture online. Overall, great buy!

Like a lot of other reviewers, we were very happy with the look of the bench. The cushion ours came with was not as orange as the picture suggests -- it's much redder. But we swapped it out with a couple of standard 14" occasional pillows, which fit perfectly. We were also impressed with how sturdy the build quality was in spite of it being so light. It fits wonderfully in our window bay without being tall enough to block the window (and view). All in all, an excellent deal for the price.

This bench is cute - and like others have said, definitely black - but definitely read the dimensions. I thought this bench would be bigger with more storage (for example I thought two people would be able to sit on it). No one's fault but mine! Still a nice piece though, and I'll definitely keep it - just need to keep my eye out for more storage now.
This is a beautiful bench, very unique looking. The wood is painted black, it looks dark brown in the photo. The cushion is not super comfy but for the price it will do. I love that the bench arrived in one piece, didn't have to put a thing together. Also, it was not a problem to lift out of the enormous box and I am a small woman. I'm quite happy with this purchase.
Other comments about the deep red color of the cushion are accurate. The bench is well-constructed (if a little on the light side), handsome, and arrived impeccably packaged. The cushion slips around a lot on the smooth wood surface--not really a complaint about the product, just FYI. I stuck a little piece of router/carpet pad underneath. Problem solved
I ordered this bench for our new house and we absolutely love it. it is also well liked by everyone who has visited our house. Though the bench itself is a tad darker than the one shown in the picture, it still looks very nice. The best part, it comes pre-assembled too. Very happy with this purchase.
