Great bench for placing right next to the front door or at the foot of your bed. I really like the Maple color. I was afraid it would be too light, but it is a very warm color. My kids put their rainboots, etc. in the baskets (purchased separately) that fit into the cubby holes, and the entryway stays clean and clutter free! I only wish there was a way that I could secure a cushion over the benchtop for when people sat on it, but it's not a big deal. It would also be nice if the website linked a set of baskets to purchase for this product so that people don't have to shop around looking for baskets that fit after the product has arrived.
