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.
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.
This bench was just what I was looking for. Plus the fact it took only minutes to put to together. I am very happy with both the appearance and the fact it was delivered very fast. I am using it for a TV stand for my 50 inch TV. It is great.
I purchased this after reading most all of the reviews. The color is darker, not as dark as an espresso but darker than pictured. The quality is just as described, you are not getting hardwood, nor are you paying for it. The quality is great for the price. The assembly was simple, great directions and I put it together by myself(a 57year old woman armed with just an electric screwdriver) and it took about 1.5 hours. Do beware, when you are putting the top on make sure that you lean it against an stationary object or you may damage it. After put together it is beautiful. The top is not going to be too durable so make sure to use something to protect the surface ie. coasters. The hinges are great and hold open the top securely. The hardware it comes with is handsome and heavy. I have already had many positive comments on it. If you buy this you will love it but make sure that you know it will damage easily if it is used roughly.
The hardware was disappointing--wasn't as nice as I thought it was from the picture--I'll look for something to replace it. The actual color is much redder than the online image. It happens to work out for my reception area ok but if I really needed the war look of oak--this is not it. It looks more like mahogany or cherry stained products. Worked out ok for me...
This bench looks very posh, is well-made and is incredibly versatile. I've moved it around my apartment, using it as a coffee table/foot stool in front of a loveseat, a bench at the end of my bed, and seating at a long desk. I definitely recommend it but folks should know it is not leather as most people understand leather to be (full-grain) and it certainly doesn't smell like leather as one review stated. Rather it is bi-cast "leather" which consists of a split leather backing coated with a layer of polyurethane and then embossed to look like leather. The surface therefore has an artificially consistent texture, unlike leather which normally has marks and scars. The product description is a little misleading as it says it is a "quality brown leather" but then goes on to describe bi-cast leather: "cow leather with polyurethane coating." But having said this, bi-cast leather is actually easier to clean and you don't have to worry about protecting it as much as you would leather so there are benefits. And of course bi-cast is much more affordable so you can't beat the price. I give this bench 5 stars as a quality piece of furniture.
This bench/cubbie is great. It is so durable. I put it together without my husbands help and it is a very solid piece of furniture.
We are using it as a window seat in our daughters room and I have no worries about her sitting on top of it. It is great and well worth the money.
I bought this bench to go in our Master Bath. It was easy to assemble and is sturdy. I would say to pay attention to the dimensions. I looked at them but didn't pay it much mind....and the bench is small! It would be great in a small space, small bath or kids room. In general, love it but wish it was bigger. My fault for not checking more carefully...but would definitely recommend to a friend.
I am thrilled with this piece. It is sturdy and looks just like the photo. The leather is soft and the stiching and tufting is perfect. Before purchasing the product, I was concerend about the quality of the stainless steel finishing after reading other reviews, but the consistency is just fine. I have been using the bench as an ottoman and it is also great for extra seating when I host a cocktail party. I highly recommend this bench and would get another one if I had room!
We bought this years ago and I still love it. I know this is not "true" leather, but with 2 small children that spill, jump off of, color on, etc, this has really held up! No scratches in the leather at all. I get lots of compliments on it, people are always amazed that I got it from Overstock. I went to **** and bought a very large leather covered tray that I leave on top so that we can use this as a table as well.
This bench is great for any entryway. It's the perfect size to sit and put your shoes on or to dump your packages when you come in. Nice, clean lines make it versatile in any decor. You can't beat it for the price.
Good little bench for my back entry way. Baskets good for gloves and hats, etc. Had to assemble but wasn't too difficult for one person. If you purchase make sure you have a black marker on hand. I had to color in about a dozen areas on seat and legs that were missing paint.....no chips......just poorly painted. Probably a little expensive for the price but does the job I need it to do.
This vanity stool was an excellent match for our bathroom. We thought it was a bit larger, but it fit rather well in front of our Jacuzzi tub and does not hinder our movement in the bathroom. Handsome looking and sturdy, it works very well for us. We recommend it if you're looking for a small stool that doesn't feel small.
This bench is a good copy of designer George Nelson's famous 1946 platform bench, which is a landmark of modern design. The clean, rectilinear lines reflect designer George Nelson's architectural background and his insistence on what he called "honest" design - making an honest visual statement about an object's purpose. For a fraction of the price of the original, I have exactly what Nelson intended in my home -- a multipurpose display and resting place that looks great in virtually any situation. Thank you, Overstock, for carrying this modernist classic for a pragmatist's price!
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.
After agonizing over two benches for our kitchen to place cook books in and bread machines (four!) on...I finally chose these...but was skeptical until they arrived and were assembled. They are nice and sturdy. Found on several other web-site but Overstock had the best price+shipping. I read MANY reviews trying to find out if the cubbies were tall enough for binders and tall books. They are. :) Note: Be VERY careful in assembling the middle (center) shelf. It can cause quite an "oops" and come through your top pc.
I bought two of these Broadway Black Cubbie Benches a year ago. They are now in my living room. We use them to place our Large screen TV on. They work great for all the other units that we have with the TV, plus the cubbie areas are great for DVDs and books. They match well with the TV being black as well, and the TV sits at just the right height. I would definately recommend these to anyone. With being a bench, they definately can take the weight. They are extremely well made. Originally I had them stacked on top of one another and used them for all my sewing and craft items, but we did away with our old style TV and needed something to put our TV on. These Black Cubbies are very versitile.
The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is because the 'expresso' is so dark is might as well be black... I wanted it to go with a leather couch that WAS expresso. But it still works fine. Check the dimensions, it is smaller than I imagined. BUT I wanted a piece that the trays fit snugly and easily into position - lots of the tip-tray benches the tray part is just balancing on the tufts of the cushion = not stable. I really went back and forth between getting a bench I could store stuff in and getting this open one. I AM SO GLAD I got the open one. It goes into my smaller LR better, and I would have just filled it with junk. Now I have books stacked on the bottom which is a good place for them. The cushions can be put onto the floor for extra seating (against the wall. Overall it seems well made and I"m happy with it.
Great bench to sit on and made well to store blankets, sheets, or misc items. It works well for my bedroom at the foot of the bed. The bench does not open fully which might bother some folks but I don't use the storage that often. The leather does not look very real , but for the price it does the purpose to sit on and utilize the storage in the bench. It arrived perfectly wrapped and my husband put the legs on with ease. If you're picky about having a bench with a rich leather look, this one is not for you. But if you need a bench that is solid and has great storage, you'll like it.
This is the 7th leather bench / ottoman I have purchased from Overstock, the 3rd of this particular style, 2 in black, 1 in red. It seems very well made and substantial. The size is just what I needed and that, of course, influenced my purchase decision. There is ample storage room inside, for small items, maybe a few pairs of shoes, the lid stays open when in the upright position. I keep shoe related products (shoe laces, polish, brush, insoles etc. in mine in the rear entrance area to my home. The tufted top gives this piece a nice designer look. Time will tell how the bi cast leather will hold up with use. Please note that this is a bench and not an ottoman as it is higher than an ottoman, but the perfect height for a bench. Delivery was in a couple of days, the item was very well packaged and there was no assembly, though I did replace the square block feet with round bun shaped feet to protect bare toes from impact damage.
For the money, this bench works out well. I have it in the hall entrance way. The style is great; I just wish it was a little bit higher. Very modern and updated look. Very sturdy. Looks more expensive than it is, but you can still tell it's not real leather. It's a great piece for hallway or at the end of a bed. The material is a little shinier in person than as shown in picture.
The metal frame blends well with a wood and metal bed. The fabric has a suede appearance but cleans easily. The only negative is the padding under the outer fabric developed a wrinkle that will require loosening the fabric to correct.
What an easy item to put together. It took me approximately 5 minutes. For a 73 yr. old grandma that's saying something. Rich looking! Modern! Lovely! Great foot rest! I can't say enough about this item. It looks much more expensive then it is. It is a great looking piece of furniture.
