by Jeannie Excellent Quality! Good Buy!
I'm very satisfied with thie storage bench. Yes the color is linen, but just know it's a DARK linen, almost beige. I'm glad it was darker and not ivory. The legs are a reddish medium brown NOT dark chocolate brown. My maintenance guy had a bit of trouble putting on the legs as the drilled holes were out of line as stated by other reviewers. The inside is 6-1/4 deep, the legs are 7-1/4 tall, the bench stands 17-1/2 in tall overall. It's deep enough for 2 blankets or 4 throws. It sits VERY firm, which should make it last longer. Good buy!

by bestfrugallady Wonderful addition to my living room
Good price for a very useful piece of furniture. It was backordered, so I had to wait a couple of months for it. It was worth the wait. I was so excited to find it as good as it looked in the picture. I am storing blankets and throws inside and still have one side for other things.
I don't know yet how durable it will be, but I am very optimistic that it will last a long time.

by marieangel Still love after a year!
I live in NYC and, like most New Yorkers, my furniture needs to be multi-functional to maximize storage. I bought two of these in the light, Linen color to act as my coffee tables. I have had them for a year and still love them. There is plenty of storage (enough for extra blankets, board games, computer equipment, etc. They are comfy footrests and provide ample extra seating when I have parties. I was worried about the light fabric, but it is very stain resistant. I've spilled spaghetti sauce, red wine, and coffee on them and the stains have come out easily. The one downside is that the legs are very hard to screw in during assembly.

Rated 5 out of 5 Ottoman
I recently purchased the 2 Compartment Storage Bench. I can't express how perfect it is for me. I have it sitting in my dining room to use to put shoes on and take shoes off. It also has space underneath where I store other shoes that I wear regularly. Me and my husband use it everyday and it also doubles as extra seating when entertaining guest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MayS96 Very nice addition to the home
This is a very nice piece of furniture with a firm seat. The storage space is very useful. The leg holes did not line up perfectly with the base so we had to use a wood rasp to enlarge the holes. Prepare for two people to work some time getting the legs on. Once put together it's a sturdy piece and looks very nice. The fabric is very attractive and can be dressed up with pillows or a throw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by zoebugg1 what a nightmare
I ordered this for the front of our bed. Overall, like th look, like the whole idea and was very excited with the quality. AS I started to put it together, OMG, it was a nightmare!!! And that is putting it mildly. I just do not understand the high rating. It isn't the materials. You have to put the legs on, that is it! Well every single hole did not line up. I tried every leg in every hole and not one lined up and they were so off, I had to spend hours chipping wood down to get the screws to go in. Why did I work so hard? I had purchased this for my husband who was coming home from a long trip and wanted to surprise him. Literally, I started working on it at 1200 midnight and before I knew it it was 630am. And still was 4 holes short of finishing. It was the most ridiculous and poorly crafted item I have ever purchased. Maybe it was the one that I was blessed to get that was made abnormal. Really!? I will never ever purchase another item like this from J. C. Penny. It was mentally, and physically exhausting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ma2four Just what I was looking for
Looks nice! I bought the linen one and use as an ottoman/coffee table in front of our couch. I had been looking for one and this one is the perfect size and a good color that goes well with my other furniture. The legs were not easy to put on but my husband was able to make adjustments with tools to make it work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kath Looks great
The bench looks wonderful - the only complaint is that one of the screw holes didn't match up with the leg. It was easily fixed. It is very sturdy. The compartments seem to be adequate although I didn't purchase it for the storage component.
