This item is great, I place it at the foot of my bed and it makes my bedroom look nice. Very useful for my book storage. I read a lot of books in bed and I use this chair/storage for storage. It holds a lot of my books, the wood is very strong quality. I'm impressed. I like how I can use it to sit and put my shoes on, rather than sitting on my bed which is very high. I really like this chair/storage.
