I received my ottoman today. It was packaged securely and arrived quickly! I was so excited to get it out the box and it exceeded my expectations!! It is exactly as it appears in the picture! It is a light gray color and it is so glam!! I was going to purchase the same ottoman for twice the price at a high end store but Overstock had the exact ottoman!! Fits perfect in my bedroom at the foot of the bed!!!
I purchased this ottoman for my music room, and though the color is slightly darker than I expected, I'm happy with the product overall. It's nicely built and the fabric is pretty and soft. I expected a more tufted look to the top of the ottoman based on the picture; in reality, the top is pretty smooth. Overall, though, this is a good quality piece, and I would recommend it.
A bit darker than I wanted (looks closer to black than dark chocolate -- there are no red tones in it at all), but it serves the purpose. It is comfortable to sit on and it is very lightweight. The only assembly was attaching the feet, so that was a bonus. It looks sophisticated. I haven't used the storage area yet, but the wells are quite deep.
Arrived within 2 days of purchasing- love overstock for that! Espresso is a rich dark brown , made of faux leather, rather than corduroy, and looks great next to my club chair. Assembled the legs in 5 minutes! And the storage space will come in handy when throws won't be needed anymore.
I bought this to go with a leather couch and it is the perfect low profile ottoman. The storage is awesome, it came fully assembled, and the hinges are good quality. It also makes a nice entryway bench. I am considering buying another.
Great from the point of view of providing extra storage and giving us somewhere to put our feet up when watching tv. Neutral fabric fits in easily but the wooden legs are a bit weird--kind of a fake "distressed" look.
I love this bench I put it in my room and have a cute way to display all my shoes. I put it together myself and it was incredibly easy. The only con to it would be the back piece but that would be all, and I didn't even bother putting it on my bench. Shipping was super quick and cheap too
Sometimes you want to make a statement with a piece of furniture, sometimes you want to solve a problem. I would not consider this "statement" furniture, but it has sure solved the problem of shoes scattered on the floor inside the front door. I know when I buy a particle board storage item that I need to check the hardware as well as the spacing and depth of the pre-drilled holes before assembling. This piece went together without any problems, holds plenty of shoes, and is not ugly. For the price I paid, I am very happy with it for those reasons. I would not use it for seating, but put a runner on it and some plants or a lamp, and it is a useful accent piece.
The piece is nice and very practical. As mentioned in the other reviews, the shoe slots are pretty small, but the trick for larger shoes, likes men's shoes or tennis shoes, is to lay one sideways. In terms of assembly, the instructions are a little confusing and the pieces are not all clearly marked. The instructions seem to say to piece it all together, then take it all apart when you start putting in the screws. My advice would be to skim through the instructions and figure out the pieces and set them in four groups first -the top, the drawers, the center and two end pieces. Use the first 4 steps to help guide you where to put the screws and wooden dowels. It may also help to figure out which screws you will need for each section as well. Don't start assembly until your reach step 5. If you are a fan of electric screw drivers like I am, they won't work well with this piece, it is better to use a regular screw driver. I think for the price, this piece is worth buying and the time it takes for assembly.
Just got this bench and I put it together in about an hour (distracted by my TV shows:) but it's actually very easy although the allen key is bit of a pain. The holes lined up nicely but two of the screws would not really take, not necessary because the rest the the screws and washers went in and the bench is very sturdy.
I love the modern look, yet still a bit traditional with the tufting. The bonded leather is a beautiful saddle brown, as the description says. It does not look cheap at all but it has a slight odor that should dissipate within a few days. the metal legs are a dark grayish but looks a bit brown as well, I guess due to lighting in the room. this works perfectly for me since I'm using this with a large farm table and brown metal chairs I purchased on this site as well. The bench will sit two adults comfortably and three children, I love the size! The cushion seems too firm right now but i'm sure it'll soften up with everyday use. I'm glad I purchased this, the price was great , the quality is great and I highly recommend.
UPDATE: it's been three years and this bench is still going strong! i love it, it has served me and my family well. there are no scratches, rips or tears and the bolts/screws have not loosened up either. we have two teens that are pretty rough on things, we also have a medium sized dog(45 pounds) that climbs on here to get his toy if it's landed here while he was playing around. this is great for extra seating during big parties, dinners, get togethers, movie night, etc. i switched from traditional decor to mcm and it looks awesome, fits right in. i highly recommend to everyone:)
This looks great in our bedroom but can also go anywhere and be used as a regular bench or entry way bench. The leather isn't real but looks great. It was also extremely easy to put together, with minimal work.
If you are looking for a bench to make a huge statement in an ordinary, bland room, this isn't the bench for you. But if you, like me, need a bench to fit into an already busy room full of prints and patterns, this bench is perfect. It is understated and casual, while still appearing rich and stylish. I've been sitting on it for hours at my writing desk and it is comfortable and functional for my purpose. I have it as a seat while I work, and either my dog or my notebook fits nicely beside me while a work. The inside storage is more than adequate. The wooden legs go nicely with the writing desk that I also purchased from Overstock a few weeks prior to finding this bench. I am very pleased with the purchase. Also, it arrived one day early, so that was a very nice surprise!
The Madison Park Shandra storage bench arrived exactly on time and in perfect condition. We're using it at the foot of our bed. It looks just as the photos posted on the website and is made and finished inside and outside very well. This storage bench has a very spacious interior which is quite unusual when compared to most other storage benches or ottomans.
We're very happy with our purchase and would highly recomend this unit to anyone looking for a storage bench or storage ottoman.
This ottoman is working well for our purpose. We recently redecorated our family room and splurged on a new couch, rug and wall system. We needed a large storage ottoman but were running out of funds. While this is faux leather, it is still attractive and well made. One of the features we like best is the way the ottoman opens. Traditional storage ottomans either have the option to be open or closed but this ottoman opens at the half way point so you can still keep your items on the top of the ottoman while retrieving a blanket, for example, inside.
Overall we are extremely pleased. Don't expect the same feel/look as genuine leather. A discrimintating person may be disappointed.
I purchased this bench for my master bedroom as an accent piece to fill in an empty wall. I purchased it in beige which is a cream color, similar as shown. It looks great in the space. I added a throw and a pillow to liven it up and tie it in with the rest of the decor. It looks well made for an inexpensive piece and worth the money but I cannot attest to it's sturdiness if used for daily seating.
Easy to put together and is an attractive piece. It was just what I was looking for to use as an accent piece against a wall that needed a little something else. I also bought the stools that match this bench. My decor is modern so I'm very pleased with the look and also with the quality of this bench.........especially for the price! The color is very close to the picture, but it is not a pure stark white. It's more of an off white.
I bought this bench to add a bit of inconspicuous seating in my living room. Boy was I wrong in thinking it would be inconspicuous! Everyone who comes to my house compliments me on it. And I agree - it is a really wonderful piece. It sits at a comfortable distance from the floor and is a very sturdy piece. I've had it now for about eight months and it is in the same shape it was in when I put it together, despite daily use. As far as putting it together -- it was a breeze. I just had to attach the legs to the bench. That's it. It took all of five minutes. So, long story short, highly recommended. I'm very, very happy with this piece.
arrived today. 20 minutes to assemble (60 year-old woman with a little help from husband). better than what i was expecting. easily fits my 5'8" medium frame with my back slouched against the arm of the chaise; my 5'11" husband says his shoes were just off the end, but not uncomfortably so. fabric is a little cheap but not bad. and besides, i plan to drape a thin quilt over it, so that's not a problem. construction seems sturdy enough. cushion is cushy enough. perfect for stealing a few minutes to read. we have it in a window corner which works especially well, with the added benefit of thus not having to view the back (which is a little cheezy-looking). legs are attractive. finishing is better than i expected for the price. and you get easily accessible storage to boot. all in all, a great buy. i rate it 5 stars for the balance of price, quality, utility and comfort. btw: i bought this off another website (same price), but it's definitely the exact same unit. just wanted to share my satisfaction since i always benefit from reading postings of others and i've always had good experiences with overstock.com.
This is a perfect fit for our narrow entrance hallway, and the fabric seat has a nice look and feel. I was a little worried when the box arrived with a tear in the middle, but the contents were well packaged, and there was no damage. The construction seems nice and sturdy. The only part that seems a little weak is the inside storage compartment base - I wouldn't put anything too heavy in there. As to assembly, the instructions are not terribly detailed: one page illustrates the completed bench, the next is a parts list, and the last page is a single exploded-view illustration of how all the parts fit together. Not bad, but it would have been nice to have been told what order to assemble the pieces in. Still, it took me less than 30 minutes to assemble by myself, so it didn't end up being a problem. Just start with one side, and the bottom shelf, and work upwards first. Don't add the other side until the rails and storage shelf are installed, or it will be too tight to slide them into their slots. You have to look really closely to find the small pilot holes that are drilled in for the bracket that holds the lid up... I nearly missed them. All in all, I'm very pleased with this purchase, and am happy with the value. Now I just need to train the kids to actually use the thing instead of dropping their sand-filled shoes throughout the house!
I love this bench and it looks expensive. It is for extra seating when I have guests, but is right in front of a large window in my condo and it's low height does not block my view.
There are only two things I would mention. First the bench is lightweight and the straps around the wood frame have some give so if your guest sits or moves very quickly, the whole bench will move with them and this could be a hazard. The second is that it is pretty low (accurate on the site description) so it cannot be used to pull up to a dining table for instance for extra seating.
Ottoman was better than I expected. I can read 100 great reviews, but then 1 bad and I'm left wondering if I've made a mistake in ordering. Not the case with this purchase. The color and fabric was exactly what I had hoped for. It's sturdy and the extra storage it provides is ideal. Using it in place of a coffee table in front of my couch.
I was looking for an ottoman to place in front of our two TV chairs. We just wanted something to throw our feet all over! With the metal frame this one has and nice, heavy leather -this is very sturdy. I did not need any storage underneath, but if you do- you could put a couple of baskets underneath.
My only criticism is that this this looks larger than it is. It is only 34" square, but very roomy.
I just received my benches yesterday and I love them! The foam is very dense and I can tell they will be "cushy" for a long time! I love the seat material as it will be easy to clean, and the neutral color goes with anything. The assembly was very simple (literally 2 steps) and are much heavier-duty than I was expecting. They fit perfectly under our dining table and are a real space-saver. I can't wait for the matching chairs to come back in stock, at which point I will find another use for one of the benches. Side note, the manufacturer's box says these are a "dark walnut" and "ash walnut" wood color. They're slightly lighter in color than my other mid-century walnut veneer pieces but still look great. Another FYI: if you plan to put protective felt bottoms on the legs, you need 1/2" round ones.
I bought this shoe storage bench for my Daughter who has more shoes than there is closet space. This piece of furniture is amazing it held nearly 40 pairs of shoes, sneakers and some flip flops. I can’t be thankful enough to say how her room finally looks clean and neat. I have it at the end of her bed and you can’t even tell that it’s a storage bench. The fabrics looks to be of nice quality and it is comfortable to sit on. I am thinking about getting one for the entryway of my house which will clear the shoes my little boys leave all over the place. What a great idea for a storage solution !!!
The legs appear to be the first point of failure. The cushion pad is pinned to the bottom of the leg and was already detached when i took it out of the box. I'd recommend you not to move the ottoman once you have it fixed in place. Otherwise no complaints..
Absolutely gorgeous and great value. Leather is in perfect condition. Only flaw is a minor division between the seams of the metal base. Guests won't notice it...not enough to warrant a return, but just enough to keep workmanship at 4 stars instead of 5. Looks great in the room; it's not tiny...beautiful size.
