I love this storage bench. I measured the dimensions given on the website before I ordered so I knew the exact size - its compact but perfect for our entryway. We store 2 backpacks, a messenger bag and a large purse in it when those things aren't in use - cuts down on clutter. Its a perfect seating height (especially for morning shoe tying) and the quality is great. It comes in MANY pieces but fortunately my husband is a contractor so that's never an issue for us.
I am impressed with the quality of the bench cabinet. The color is beautiful. The quality of the wood is solid and strong. The size of the bench/cabinet is perfect for my space. Talking about the price, I think I really got a fantastic deal on O.com. I am really glad that I decided on this one. I highly recommend to everyone.
This looks as good as in the pictures. Totally serves my purpose. Instructions were easy to follow. My recommendation would be to include an extra bolt/screw for each size because one of the major screws was unusable.
This is a really solid bench with a modern finish. A little greenish tinge to the wood. It can easily be used without the doors and shelves, with just open cubbies for storage using baskets. Putting this together is time consuming! There are plenty of parts, and even a bag of extra screws/ dowels etc, but this is a job that takes about two hours.
This bench is a little bit lower than other entry way benches I have sat on but it does fill in our little cove nicely. The product is light and easily assembled. The only part I had trouble with was the spring arm that opens and closes the storage lid. When installing this piece initially, it was somewhat confusing as it looked like it was bent the wrong way. After assembling it together and closing it, the sound that it makes the very first time, sounds like you are going to tear the wood apart and the screws would rip out. That is the only thing that concerns me. We are now scared to even open and close it for storage because the arm is so strong.
I received my bench today. I ordered the fawn/brown color. The ottoman is not brown! It is gray! If this is the correct color for my bench, then a different description of its color needs to to be made! I love the quality of the bench and it came without damage and is a hefty weight. I give this 4 stars because of the color. I am not going to return it, but it would look a lot better with my chocolate leather couch if it was fawn/brown!
This is a nice piece of furniture. Assembly was a little time-consuming, but the instructions are good. Take your time to lay out everything and follow the instructions step by step.
One gripe I have is that the holes for the center leg, the one that is at the bottom center of the bench, were not pre-drilled. I had to do that myself and the screws did not go all the way in, at least not using that little L shaped tool provided. I had to balance the chair using those floor protectors under the four corner legs. Poor quality control I say.
Another more important gripe is also related to the quality control on this product. The side board was scratched in one spot, as if someone left a sharp tool leaning against it for years. This damage did not happen during shipping. After taking all the pieces out, and to avoid the hassles of returning this product for an exchange I decided to touch up the scratches with a furniture marker and thanks to the lighting at the final location of this bench it is not too visible. There was a time when this would have driven me nuts.
Love this bench! I put it in a 4' x 6' picture nook and it's perfect. Not too tall, so pictures still pop. I added a couple of textured bolster pillows for color. Space is near my front door, and it's a great place to store hats and gloves, and works well to put on my shoes before leaving the house. Sturdy and nicely finished.
Perfect size for what we needed - just had to attach the legs, which was so nice for a change as I hate putting furniture together. Great combination of that mid-century-modern style in a more contemporary finish. Had to have the cushion recovered because the striped fabric that comes with it is more blue than white, but not an expensive fix. Highly recommend.
We purchased this bench for our entry. The assembly was not perfect, the lid hinge holes were not aligmed correctly so they had to be redrilled. But once it was assembled, it is a very nice piece of furniture.
