  1. Janet Lanier

    Has venting openings in storage areaI didn’t notice this in the product description or in any of the reviews but the storage area has venting holes in the back. This might be something a buyer would want or not want depending on how they use the storage area. Overall, I would purchase this again if I needed another storage bench. The product shipped quickly and the unit was well protected in packaging. The wood looks very nice and I liked that the hardware was well labeled and the directions were well written. There was a separate bag labeled extra hardware so that was a good idea. Instructions say you’ll need a Phillips screwdriver and rubber mallet for the dowels but I found the dowels were so loose that the mallet was unnecessary. I would not describe the assembly process easy. I have assembled other furniture kits in the past and I found this one to be a 7 out of 10 in assembly ease. Not that there was anything requiring strength but there were a few steps where I had to ask for a helping hand from my husband to hold things together while installing screws. There were 4 screws to attach the center leg support but those screws were not long enough. Luckily I had some that worked in my stash. Many reviewers mentioned the size of the unit being small but I felt it was the same height as another window seat and an ottoman I had. The height is perfect for putting on boots. I think it would look good in an appropriate area but yes, it could look like child’s furniture if put in the the wrong setting. I read answers on the weight capacity and the manufacturer answered one time with 265 lbs and another time 300 lbs. so even though it says 2 people can sit on it (yes, there’s room for 2), I would keep that total capacity in mind.

    Poor Fit and FinishI like the overall design and the bench itself seems quite sturdy. However, the fit and finish were not good. Pieces didn’t line up well and there were defects in the painted areas. Fortunately I was able to paint over those areas. Overall I am satisfied because it was more affordable than other benches I have seen. I did not return the bench because I wasn’t expecting perfection at this price point anyway.

    Nice and sturdyThis worked out great in our sunroom…nice color…only thing bad was table had blemish defects we noticed after assembly. Contacted vendor customer service and was offered a discount Instead of returning items. ..otherwise if there was no surface blemishes…I would have given 5 stars.

    I like it , but it came cracked at front leg joint.It is the perfect size and design for my hallway. The front leg joint was cracked. I’m using it anyway, because there is no way I could pack it all back up to return.

  5. Sharon Bolander

    Make or buy a pad for this bench and it’s a winnerIt does take two people to assemble more easily, but the instructions will get you there. This bench was perfect for my entryway and purchased to provide enough storage for hats, gloves, scarves, etc. I’ve placed the bench centered beneath a shelf coat rack installed high enough over the bench to not interfer with its use. I am happy with this purchase and it was just as I expected from the description.

    Tasteful as the bench is just outside our front door.As far as assembly, we paid supplier to assemble, took about half an hour, for someone who had done it before ! Love the color and finish of the wood, it is outside but under an overhang but weather in Pt. Loma is damp and foggy in winter, but it appears it will hold up fine. Really like it and storage under the seat.

  7. GRG

    Smaller than expectedAssembled the unit easily and it is very sturdy using quality materials. As another reviewer wrote (I should have paid more attention), the bench is smaller than expected. Length and depth are good; however, the seat is low to the ground for an adult … only 16.5″ high. Lid for storage area does not open fully; the hinges allow about 1/2 way only. Ordered a flat bench cushion (don’t order a tufted one because it will be too puffy) to protect the seat and to give some height. In the end, it suits my purposes in the mudroom. Recommended for quality and design but be aware of the actual size.

  8. Harold Cash

    Smaller than expectedIt’s a good purchase, but it’s smaller than it looks in person

    Stylish but wood splitsIt can not be placed outside in any type of weather. Ours seat split the first day outside with the humidity. We covered it with a plastic outdoor cover and it’s splitting in our places now.Great for indoors not outside even if it’s in a screen porch. It falls apart in a week

    Not as sturdy as I hoped forBench is not as sturdy as it looks. The bench height is also smaller than expected. Easy to assemble but the sitting area of the bench makes a cracking sound when sitting.
