Purchased for the foot of a king bed, fits nicely, has strong presence and is well proportioned for use at that spot. The bench is quite sturdy (feels solid when you sit on it) and has good storage capacity. We like that the padding comes all the way down the sides which prevents running into sharp corners when walking around the bed. We use the bench daily for putting on shoes and socks - so far so good but it's only been less than 1 month since its receipt. Be warned ... the color is definitely not what we expected. Yes, it's off-white, but in such a way that it gives off a greenish cast. Not the best for our room, but It works ok, so we are keeping the piece. Others, however, may find the described color off putting. I's not exactly what one would expect in terms of an "off-white" color.
