I have been looking for an 'entry piece' for the front door area for quite some time. I was considering having one built to my specifications when I finally saw this bench (and accompanying coat rack / wall shelf) on my favorite "orange" site, Home Depot. It arrived in a short period of time and was in excellent condition. The instructions were easy to follow and the assembly, through relatively involved, went well. It is of good quality, strong, sturdy, and heavy. I especially like that the seat cushion is removable as I have three cats who I know are going to be sitting on, and possibly scratching, the cushion. I plan of having a seat cover (or two) made for it so I can remove and wash it periodically. The color blends well with the rest of the décor in the area. Next up, finding baskets for the three cubbies under the bench.

This was a gift for my son and daughter-in-law. Looks great in their entry. Shipped free to our local store.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Truereview22 Minor set-backs with assembly
The stickers that numbers each piece were impossible to get off. Had to use goo-gone on each sticker. Spent more time getting the numbered stickers of then assembling the bench
There was one pre glued and nailed piece to the bench that was glued and nailed incorrectly, which resulted in me having to use a longer screw then what came with bench
Overall, the bench works perfect for the space in my house. Just a few flaws with assembly

I got the expresso finish. It's very nice and pretty easy to put together. I put it together myself in about 30 mins. I did have to pre drill my own holes for the two center supports on bottom. I just got a drill and little drill bit to start the holes .. Wasn't hard just don't go all the way thru just enough to get the screw going. I put this in my kitchen so my kids had some where to sit to put shoes on in the morning instead of sitting on stairs and I'm looking for some bins for the two side cubbies .. Can't be bigger then 12h x 12w x 15d .. And the center cubby is about 12h x11 3/4w x15d. Hope this helps. The cushion isn't bad.

The bench arrived quickly. No damage. It is as described. I found it was helpful to look at the picture of the bench all put together to determine what the directions were telling me. One section was a little confusing. Otherwise went together easily and everything lines up great. We only needed screwdrivers to assemble. Very sturdy. Looks very nice in our entry. After reading reviews, I assumed I would need to immediately replace the cushion. I do not feel it warrants some of the criticism it received. It's not plush high quality, however it seems durable enough for its intended purpose. I have not added baskets yet, but have found several online that will fit. Super happy with this purchase.

The bench/w cushion is a good product. It looks great in our mud-room and takes my weight when changing my shoes. Assembly instructions were difficult in understanding, especially when it came time to put the sides and railings on the bench. The instructions do not provide the complete picture on the steps you need to take to put the sides/railings together. I can see how some owners might have put the sides on and then scratched their heads as to how to put the railings on when the sides are already attached. The predrilled holes at the bottom of the bench to attach the support legs were not present. Had to pre-drill them myself. Other than that, I liked the product.

I love this bench. It's well made, and a perfect size for our townhouse (i.e. not too big). My children were always dropping their backpacks right by the front door which made our house look very cluttered. Now they put them in the cubbies. My high schooler has a lot of big binders in her backpack, so it's a little harder to fit it in the cubby, but it still works. The assembly instructions were so well written and all the parts clearly labeled, but it did take us about an hour to put it together, and I think you do need two people.
