I decided to purchase this futon based on reviews on this site. And it was less than half of the cost of a 10 inch futon for sale at futon stores in NYC, so the price was hard to beat. I have been sleeping on a mattress that compressed to @ 4 inches after 5+ years so anything thicker would be better than what I had. I let the mattress air out and decompress for a long weekend while I went out of town. I was amazed by how much thicker it was than the futon mattress I was sleeping on. All around I am pleased with this mattress so far, even though I've slept on it for about a week, BUT it's not a full 10 inches. It seems to be @ 8 in the middle that gets the most weight on it and @ 9 inches on the ends. But it's still a great deal compared to in stores. The shipping was fast, I think I received it 5 business days after I ordered it.
Thanks to everyone who took time to review this and other ottomans here at overstock.com, I thought I had a good idea of what type of ottoman I wanted. Still, I prefer to shop locally and hit the local furniture stores looking for a coffee table ottoman. I was initially interested in the table-with-an-upholstered/leather-top look; however, most of the brick and mortar stores only carried the 'grandma/grandpa' shapeless foot stool kind of ottoman. And the color and size options were also paltry -- boring oatmeal family colors or crazy patterns and sizes that were too large for my needs. A couple of stores carried selections with a little bit of style to them, but I felt that the asking prices were ridiculous. I mean, why does a glorified foot stool cost as much as my lei zee boi recliner? Anyway, I re-shuffled my priorities and began to consider more traditional ottomans such as this one. I liked the idea of adding a punch of color to my living room via the ottoman, I liked the clean shape of this one, and I really liked the price. (Although I was a bit skeptical after seeing the prices around town, thinking 'what's wrong with this ottoman that overstock sells it so cheaply?')
I chose the wine colored one. Like an earlier poster noted, the color is a deep burgundy, which is just perfect for my room. I was afraid that it would look too wee in front of my 80" long sofa, but it is perfectly proportioned - length, width, and height. And like someone else also noted, while no one will mistake this for a high end piece of furniture - it isn't lux - I don't think it looks cheap either. Shipping was lightening quick (I ordered very late Sunday night/Monday morning, and it arrived Wednesday afternoon), nothing was damaged, and it took minutes to affix the legs. No bad smell either. My only concern is regarding how this piece will do long-term. The material does not seem to be all that thick and I wonder how it will weather extended use - if the material and/or seams will stretch under the weight of resting feet. Only time will tell, but until then I remain very happy with my purchase.
I spent a couple of months researching this dowel base Eames chair and the rocker version, almost pulling the trigger on the Modernica fiberglass proximity ($400!). The chairs arrived in 2 days, shipping cost a couple of bucks, and I put them together easily (4 hex screws, not complicated).
Measurements are very close to Eames specs listed on Design Within Reach's site (about a half an inch shy on all dimensions).
Finish is pure bright white, with subtle grained texture (similar to an egg's shell) only noticeable close up. The product detail shot looks to be more of a glossy finish, but the actual product is definitely matte. Very subtly "dimpling" noticed on seat above 4 areas where base attaches to the chair. This may very well be the case with the legit Eames version too, but worth mentioning.
Base is adequate. Black cross beams with silver hex screws. The wooden dowel legs are fine- lighter colored birch (or perhaps "beech") finish. Glossy-ness of urethane finish on the wood is slightly cheap looking- though it should dull with time. I've seen the White on White version in person, and it excels in this area- their version features a more rich looking walnut, but is more expensive. Black floor caps on bottom of legs are nothing to write home about.
All in all, a good product for the money.
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 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.
Pretty much exactly what I expected from the photo and other reviews. Keep in mind two things: 1. this is bi-cast leather (not genuine leather), so it has more of a vinyl feel; 2. it's not a very big ottoman -- take a close look at the dimensions. We use it as extra seating (for one person), and to store blankets/throws. Overall, it seems to be made very well (seams, hinges, and feet are all solid).
