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.
Be forewarned: this is a big heavy bed, even shipped divided out in 3 boxes. It is transported to the point of assembly much easier if you break those boxes and move the parts in many trips. An electric screwdriver or cordless drill is pretty much essential for this assembly. While not complicated -- this is familiar cam and lock, screws, nuts and bolts and nails, there are many parts and you should set aside a few hours with no interruptions or distractions.
Once together, the bed is as advertised -- looks fine, not flashy but functional. The drawers operate smoothly and are a good use of space that would otherwise be lost. We use ours with the 14 inch memory foam mattress, and it's an excellent fit and match. A good bargain -- but plan this one out, have some time, and make your final decision on where you want this bed BEFORE you start assembling! Again, and as the boxes say: HEAVY.
I read the reviews before and was scared to get this bed in. People have said it is impossible to assemble.. its not. If you follow the instructions its simple. You really need two people though. My boyfriend and I assembled this bed in the time it said we would ( i think it was 105 minutes). The drawers took a little longer though. However it was not hard or impossible. Don't let the bad reviews steer you away from buying this bed. It is wonderful once you get it together, it works really well with a memory foam mattress. It took a while to get here thats the only bad thing. My mattress got here a few days after i ordered and this took like 2 weeks. Well worth 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.
This chair is very comfortable and firm. I have a bad back and hip and this chair makes it easy to sit or rise from which is one of the problems that I have with most chairs. The seat height is perfect and the cushion is firm and stable. The ottoman is just an added bonus which makes this chair very much worth the price. Would certainly recommend this chair and ottoman to any of my friends. Colors are very nice as well. If you want a great chair for a bargain price, this one is for you....enjoy!!
Bought this for a guest room and it is a great colorful accent to the room. Color is true to photo, so be ready for a bright chair. It is comfy, however the back is pretty low, so it isn't a chair you can nap in and the fabric does pick up dog/cat hair so if you have a pet free home or a good lint brush, this will work. It is great for the guest room and would recommend for dorm, teen room, or guest room. Thanks again overstock. Oh, the box won't fit through a normal size door so be prepared to unpack it on your porch!
I would rate this chair and ottoman 4.5 stars. I did my homework and read other reviews before I purchased this pair. The chair fits a small space very well. I use it my bedroom. The color is true and an almost Tiffany Box blue. Like the other reviews stated, the legs screwed on easily. I hate the fact it is made in China.
The only thing keeping me from giving this five stars is that it is a really firm cushion. I didn't have any problems with assembly, and I must have gotten the extra parts one of the other reviewers was missing. LOL I had a LOT of extra hardware I didn't need.
We got this to replace a really old couch in a house I inherited, because we wanted a queen-sized sleeper bed without paying an arm and a leg. Got the walnut finish, navy mattress, and spent the extra money to buy two of the microfiber covers (one natural one blue). Glad I did because we have dogs. LOL The extra cover fits easily.
The back is taller than I thought it would be, I didn't measure it to see if it's the same as in the description, but that's okay. If you're going to use it to sleep on, you will want to (as we are) invest in a memory foam or other kind of padded topper to make it more comfortable to sleep on. But I do like that the seat is wide enough to stretch out on and cuddle in couch mode. :)
No, the instructions aren't the best, but I've assembled a futon before, and I'm used to assembling things with crummy instructions, so that didn't bother me.
No regrets here, assembly took maybe an hour or so by myself. (Had to have hubby help me with the mattress, that thing is HEAVY.) You will have to pull it out from the wall to put it in bed mode if you have it smack up against a wall, so make sure to take precautions to protect your floor from scratching if you have non-carpeted floors.
I was looking for more storage, and had been considering buying a storage bench when I saw this ottoman. I bought two of them, to sit in front of two matching chairs that needed ottomans. They are great! As other reviewers have said, they aren't flimsy, and don't require assembly. They are very dark brown (almost black) and are on the small side (OK with me because I live in an apartment). I'm pleased with how much storage space is inside. They are perfect for holding my 4 year old niece's toys--and, the lids won't smash down on her little fingers! They are super functional...you can sit on them, use them as a table when sitting on the floor, plus--they don't slide away when you prop your feet up on them! They arrived in perfect condition. Highly recommended. This is my second positive experience buying furniture from Overstock.com! I will definately purchase more.
For the price, you can't beat it. ASSEMBLY: People complained that the futon was difficult to put together, and yeah, it wasn't especially easy, but it was no harder than any other futon I've put together before. The biggest pain was that the unthreaded screw holes are significantly larger than the threaded screw holes, which means you need to be careful to get everything to line up right. With a little finagling, a rubber mallet, and some vice grips, I was able to put it together by myself in about 2 hours. The springs that people complained were difficult to put on the hinge came already assembled on mine. IN USE: I couldn't ask for a better metal futon frame. My brother used to have a metal futon frame, which had large bars that were far apart, and you could always feel them individually through the frame. This one has many small metal bars, which mean that the weight gets distributed evenly. It can be a little tough to raise/lower the back, but I've never seen a futon that didn't have that issue, and as they go, this one is on the easier side of difficult. CONSTRUCTION: Some of the joints created by the small pieces are not especially sturdy. In particular, the joints on the crossbeams (two bars connected end to end) have a bit too much give in them. Other than that, though, the hinge and spring are very sturdy and seem to be well-made. I don't have to worry about it folding up/down accidentally. The endpieces look nice and seem to be sturdy as well.
I had seen this headboard and footboard on another site and really liked it. It was being purchased for a guest room so we did not want anything too costly. I seached on-line and Overstock had the best price by far. It was very easy to assemble and looks amazing in the bedroom.
I have purchased several items from Overstock and LOVE everything I have bought!
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.
Just received this yesterday! I wouldn't say it is a high-end piece of furniture by any means, but it is an excellent value for the money. The leather does not look cheap, it is a decent weight piece, and it will be perfect for our high-traffic family room. The hidden wheels make it very easy to move around the room, and there is quite a bit of storage inside. The photo is pretty true to color as well.
I purchased this foot stool because of the style and price, (which is quite reasonable), after comparing over a dozen others online. I did not like the faux leather cover, however, I planned to recover the stool after it arrived . So in reality the cover did not matter. I recovered it to match a pair of chairs I have and the project worked out quite well.
I bought six of these for the conference room of my office and they have worked great. The casters make it very convenient to move around, and the size is perfect for space where space s a premium. The bicast leather is easily maintained and looks very good. And the panel stitching is just the sort of detail that speaks to a certain level of craftsmanship. I agree with other reviewers that this is value-priced.
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!
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.
I don't have much new to say about the futon mattress. It arrived earlier than expected, and it was vacuum-packed into a box. Once out, the mattress was very flat and smelled kind of funny. After 48 hours, it puffed up pretty good, but not to the full 8" (and it never has). I sleep well on it at night, but it is still very much a futon mattress, so don't expect it to be more (like I did).
The sage color is nice, and the price is great, especially with the $2.95 or free shipping.
This is exactly what we were looking for to stow away a blanket or something we use frequently and have easy access. It's a tremendous value, very handsome and it appears that the workmanship is very good.
We recently put together the Provo Mission-style Frame and Mattress Futon Set. We ordered the medium oak colored arms. We are extremely pleased with our purchase. The instructions are sometimes a little difficult to identify parts so you have to use your logic as well. There are extra parts so don't expect to use all washers, nuts, etc. Everything was accounted for so we had no problem there (parts were all in a plastic bag and extra parts came with the arms which we only used the wood buttons to cover the screw holes). It took us approximately 1 1/2 hours to put the frame and arms together. The frame is nice and solid black metal. The mattress is soft, thick and plush. The arms fit securely onto the frame and are nice solid wood. The futon mattress is so comfortable. We bought this futon to replace an older wood futon we had which had broken. This futon is so much more comfortable. We ordered a full size which just fit against the wall in our den replacing the older queen size. So, this futon set is a large full size. We are very pleased and extremely happy with our purchase. The mattress and frame are shipped in two separate packages but arrived together within a week from ordering and were shipped FedEx. You can't beat the low shipping price as well as. All around, a great deal!
I had been searching for the "right" ottoman and could not decide whether to purchase faux leather or leather. That's always an issue because of my dog. Size was a huge issue as well as I didn't want this to be too high or wide. This is a perfect size! Just enough room to store some throws and a blanket for those chilly New England nights. I purchased an arm chair in sage microfiber (from Overstock) a few months ago and it looks beautiful together. Now it's the best spot to sit back, relax, and put your feet up to read. Caution..you may fall a sleep in this great comfortable corner!
Arrived in good condition, was easy to assemble, and is giving us way more support than our broken down, standard frame did. It's worth the price over buying a similarly priced standard frame, for sure!
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).
Very good value, Mattress is very comfortable . Directions are a little confusing because of the multiple hardware included for various frames and arm rest configurations but overall it was straight forward to assemble. Looks good and is functional.
This chair frikkin' rocks it Jetson-stylee! With these space age babies around my black lucite dining table, its like being in the United Starship Federation siutation room, planning a recon mission to the event horizon. And because the designers of this chair were obviously looking into the future when they made this, the ABS plastic resists fading from UV rays, so there's no need to worry when you're floating on sunshine.
