1. Durable construction with solid wood frame and polyester fabric. Wooden feet easily screw into holes in the bottom, giving it 3 inches (8 cm) above floor; remember to remove plastic cover from the copper screw. Cardboard pieces come in sections, and are removable. 2. Large size is symmetrically balanced with queen-sized bed. Smaller size is geometrical with a full bed. Bench needs 3.5 inches (9 cm) distance in front of your bed when the lid lifts. 3. Tulip is the pink flamingo color. It's pretty, yet suitable for adults; definitely more mature than a 5-year-old princess pink. 4. The only reason this bench aint a perfect 5* is because of lingering manufacturing fumes. I recommend wearing a lawnmowing breath mask when unwrapping and assembling the feet on this bench, then let it vent in an isolated room for several weeks to let the putrid stench dissipate; odor is not quite as horrible as bleach table cleanser at restaurants, but the fumes linger longer, thus preventing the bench from being immediately usable. In spite of that one shortcoming, I LOVE THIS PINK FLAMINGO STORAGE BENCH!!
Easy to assemble. Solid, quality piece of furniture. I was a little worried about the "shimmer" in the fabric when reading the description, but it looks lovely and is very subtle. A great new piece for my entryway.
Only 7 days for me to get the 2 benches I ordered! Very pleased with that. Next, I depend on accurate information to help me make good decisions regarding my purchases so allow me to clarify a few things about this bench. 1. It is DEFINITELY genuine Mongolian sheepskin. I've had it verified by a furrier. One reviewer said her clients rejected this bench because they were acrylic. I believe that was the decision they made because they read and believed the manufacturer's label on the bottom, which at the time of this writing, says, "polyester fiber - 16%, etc...". That is INCORRECT and I have spoken at length with O customer service about having the maker correct the label. 2. At the time of this writing, O's website description of materials in this bench do not included "genuine sheepskin" which they will hopefully add because it's a strong selling point and it's TRUE. 3. The "leather upholstery" term is unclear. After much discussion it has been determined that this has "bonded leather" as the surround. Google that term if you don't know what it means. The bonded leather doesn't bother me, I just want to know up front what I'm dealing with, and now you know, too! This bench is sturdy, sexy, unusual, I can't take my eyes off it and will be the talk of my living room for years to come.
I have seen this bench on a few high end design sites, one even had it priced at double the Overstock price. Quality is great. The wood legs are heavy and well done and the grey fabric is a nice. The fabric is polyester but feels fine, not great but looks good! My only complaint is the pillow top piping is a little crooked but I just think for the price I am not going to let it bother me! This bench was a pleasant surprise, I like it way more than I thought I would.
