This storage bench is amazing! Our granddaughter opened the box for her 18th birthday and was so surprised at such great quality! Currently she is storing blankets but can hold much more. Larger than expected. Be sure to measure the space prior to purchasing allowing 5" for opening hydraulic hinged lid. Granddaughter placed it in front of the bed. Very sturdy. Made of hardwood, cowhide, metal and bonded leather. Colors blend perfect.. like natural! Metal chrome studs and handles on the sides add the perfect touch. She likes rustic and chic! What a combination! This means the bench is suitable for most anyone or decor. Highly Recommended!
