Cute is the perfect word for this bench because it is small, but is the exact size I needed for my small entryway. Product arrived in very good condition, with all parts separated so it was easy to check that everything was there. Assemble was quite straight forward. From other reviews that mentioned how the bench squeaks when used for sitting, I decided to tackle that during assembly. I believe that the wood pegs are a bit small for the holes drilled for them. This makes for easy assembly but could be the source of the squeak. So I got out some wood glue and added that into both ends of any spot the wood pegs went during my assembly. I am not wild about the baskets that come with the bench. I didn't like the color in the first place and was already going to look for substitutes. On arrival, the wicker that is used to make them is very brittle and definitely won't stand up to any real use, so I will either make fabric covers for them in a color I like or just purchase new baskets. But the bench is just as I expected and I am happy with it. It would look great in a baby or small child's room. All measurements given are extremely accurate.
Looks just like the picture!

I had shopped for a while, looking for a bench that wasn't deep so it would fit against a wall that a door would hit it while open. This bench is only 14" deep and fits the spot perfectly! Shoes fit under it and the baskets hold little things like gloves and scarves. It's a great place to drop a purse when you come in the house. The packing on this was well done. I have little bits of Styrofoam all over to prove it! The directions were pretty clear and the best thing was the bag of screws. They were packaged all separately and labeled so you didn't have to guess which thing went where. I only had two problems while putting this together: 1- I only had two hands. Having someone help old the first few pieces would have been wonderful but I managed 2- The seat of the bench didn't have pre drilled holes so I had a very hard time getting the screws in. The dark color does scratch easily so you might want to assemble it on carpeting or a blanket. Over all, I'm very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

We have a inset space in our front entry that isn't any bigger that 36" wide. It has been a challenge to find an entry bench less than 42"!! This one fits perfectly and stores winter stocking caps and gloves (we live in snow country). We also have a "boot tray" that we slide under the bench; it store 4 pairs of boots/shoes. Easy to assemble and very sturdy. We love it!
Good little bench
Alanna from Austin, TX – Verified Buyer
Great little bench for small areas. Seems pretty sturdy and strong - I'm not worried about actually sitting on it. It is small - but if you read the product specifications the measurements are correct - don't make assumptions and measure your space! Decently easy to assemble - but instruction book came stapled smack dab in the middle, not in the "spine" resulting in having to rip each page too turn it. Instructions also seem to leave out when and how to assemble one of the front pieces (not there in one picture, then bam, there it is!) Either way, it only took 20ish minutes to put together and I do like it - A good buy!!
Nice SMALL Bench
Kathy from WI
The bench arrived in good condition and was fairly easy to assemble. Be careful that you don't screw the screws in too tightly when attaching the frame to the seat - although it didn't come thru, it left a 'pimple' on the seat that was pretty visible due to the shiny black surface. The bench is a little smaller than I expected - wish the back slats had been a little higher. Nice looking bench considering the price.
Just what you expect.

This bench arrives exactly as the picture shows. You must assemble and that took me about 1 hour in total...but unlike furniture from some other stores, all of the dowel holes lined up correctly. Very sturdy and exactly what I was hoping for in my entryway. Such a reasonable price. Fast delivery, even with weather delays.
Attractive bench for small entryway
Valerie from Austin, TX – Verified Buyer
This storage bench is sturdy. I was able to assemble it without help, but a second pair of hands would've made things go faster.The attractive baskets are large enough to hold quite a lot of junk, and they look sharp with the black. The legs are high enough to hide shoes underneath the bench. The bench is small, but was the perfect size for a small entryway and is a nice point of interest for a tiny space.
PERFECT FOR A SMALL SPACE
DEBORAH from DAVIE, FL – Verified Buyer
I just needed a little bench with storage for a small guest room, somewhere to put on shoes and such. Looked at storage ottomans and they were too wide, this is perfect. My first guest commented on how nice it looked in the room and how sturdy it was. It was simple to put together by myself and the baskets hold spare towels and a blanket for my guests. Perfect for my needs. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the packaging, too much styrofoam. Pros: sturdy, storage, attractive, easy to assemble Cons: too much styrofoam in packaging
Exactly what I was looking for!
Angela from Minot, ND – Verified Buyer
I have a small hallway in my house that provides as entrance area for the guest bathroom, guest bedroom, and laundry room. It's a regular hallway so I needed something that was not too deep but still functional. This fulfills my exact need! The baskets are just right to store by dog's toys, leashes and harnesses, and coats. I got the white one which looks great with the thick white trim I have in my hallway. I hung a 5-hook coat hook above it so it has essentially created a makeshift hall tree. I'm surprised by the number of compliments I get on it! One caveat, attaching the seat of the bench was a littly hinky so I actually opted to not attach it. Still looks great.
Great Product, but...
Harvey from Manchester, CT – Verified Buyer
This has been a great addition to our entry way. It is decorative, sturdy, and very practical. The scraping and subsequent irritating noise caused by the bare metal flanges every time you pull the baskets out is very unpleasant. I found it necessary to glue felt pads to the metal flanges on the bottom of the baskets, something the manufacture should do to eliminate this problem. Without this problem my rating would have been 5 STARS.
