I purchased this to add seating to my Living Room. I needed seating in front of a picture window but I didn't want to sacrifice my view. This bench is perfect. Perfect height, beautiful pattern, and plenty of additional storage and seating. I have already purchased another one in brown for the Master Bedroom.
Good product. Hinged bench allows product to be placed flush against the wall, which is an excellent feature. Has WONDERFUL storage and the hinged lid closes down easily and without worrying about harming little ones. Bought two which I placed under a triple window to make a very long window seat/bed. One holds all the kiddos downstairs toys, the other holds blankets and pillows from the couch when not in use. Love the functionality. Only negative. The Paisley colors are a little dated and busy, but I can accept that. May even cover one day. Bottom line, a very functional piece.
Beware this piece of furniture is not the same color as it is online, not even close. Online it is appears to be overall a red/brown and an orange/brownish red, but in person it is more a maroon red and emerald green. I looked at this online from 4 different monitors to account for monitor color differences and I liked it on all four monitors but not in my home, it is way more green than red and darker than online and does not match my home. Called Overstock $** return price....thanks Overstock, never had issues before but this last order both things I ordered were not right, probably staying away from Overstock from here on out. They did offer to put a credit on my account to use for another purchase but that does not help me since I don't trust ordering from them again.
First of all I am a long time customer here at Overstock and 99% of the time been very happy if not thrilled with my purchases and savings. This ottoman, however, is another story. I purchased one of these exact ottomans maybe 3 years ago now and was thrilled with the item and quality. This time I am shocked at the difference in quality of the item. The color is as far off the photo as can be. Very dark pattern, can hardly notice that it is paisley without looking closely. The fabric itself is so loose on the frame that I am afraid it will be snagged if not torn very quickly between the dogs and grandchildren. I placed it today and went to fill it with the kids toys only to find the bottom piece is popped up and I need to nail it back in myself before I can use it. The staples put in place to hold the bottom down are all sticking up a good half inch. They're not even into the very thin wood piece! All in all I would never have purchased it a second time had I known the quality was going to be so poor. I would return it except for the hassle and wait for more than likely another of the same horrible quality. I do hope this isn't going to become the "normal" with Overstock. To see an item, very popular as it has become, being turned out with such poor quality and sold to honest customers who trust overstock after years of doing business. My purchases are researched and my money spent wisely, or so I've always felt. This purchase I cannot say that. Shame on Overstock for selling such low quality item!
I absolutely love this bench. I have been searching for something like this for a while. I have a small living room and am using it as a coffee table that can also be extra seating for company. I also store extra bedding in there in case someone needs to sleep on the couch.

I love this bench! Well constructed, tightly upholstered, just screw the legs on and viola! a great piece of furniture. Roomy storage space, easy to open and it looks beautiful. Found overstuffed chairs on another site that had the same fabric! I'm using the bench as an ottoman and it works perfectly.

Was concerned about color based on earlier reviews, matches well with Mission style red oak. Enough color to accent but subdued, nothing overwhelming. Was able to place three King size (medium weight) comforters in and still a little room left. Comfortable for sitting to put shoes on, probably not if sitting for long period. Hinges nice quality, wall hugger style.
The color is nice, it tends to change depending on the lighting (time of day) and where you are sitting. Has a little shininess to it. A little more green then I thought there would be but its really nice!! Very good quality. I love the way it opens up. It opens in such a way and there is no back or front to the bench so I am using it as an coffee table with trays on it. Only problem is that the inside bottom is a little flimsy so I had to warn my kids NOT to try to go inside it. Great for storing blankets and pillows and stuff like that. My husband and son have been sitting on it while playing video games and it is comfy and holds up well. IMPORTANT... I took a gamble and ordered a matching chair and ottoman not wondering if it is the same fabric and it is. The chair is the Mira 8-way Hand-tied Paisley Arm Chair and Ottoman. Also an amazing price and a great chair!! Really beautiful and comfy!!

This is a beautiful bench, it matches perfectly the chair and ottoman I purchased at the same time. The floor of the inside of the storage area is badly bowed up, & not attached down to the frame. I'll place heavy books inside to see if it'll flatten out. Since it was the last in stock, I don't want to return it, as it's not replaceable.
I received my ottoman in less than a week. The colors are a bit more muted than in the picture but I expected that. I also have a handy living chair in the same pattern that I love. I wish I could submit a photo, I think that would help shoppers make an educated decision.
This storage bench isn't as spacious as the other one I purchased a few years ago. However, it serves the purpose of the storage area I needed. It is colorful but doesn't go so well with my blues. I will eventually be changing some of my decor so then it will be fine. For now I've left the legs off but may put them on at a later date. Overall I am satisfied. By the way, as other reviewers stated, some of the staple were sticking up and had to be hammered down.
This arrived quickly and fully intact. The colors are not as bright as the image showed on my monitor (it's better than the the online image). I have a small condo and this piece added extra seating, storage and functionality I desperately needed.
This is a very attractive piece. It's in a dormer in my bedroom and looks like it was made to be there. It will provide occasional sitting. Time will tell how it stands up to wear and tear. But the way it opens and hugs the wall is so fantastic. If you are looking for a bench, look no further.
I admit I hadn't 'registered' that this was a wall hugger until I got it and set it up. The action is so smooth and easy, and of course that means it can sit flat against a wall, taking minimal space from the room....and due to its length, it can store blankets, pillows, 'whatever'...it's GREAT!!
