This is a really sharp looking unit, and I am very happy with it. Between the drawers and the baskets, there is plenty of room to store shoes, gloves, hats, etc ... I also like the cushion on top which not only looks great, but also feels nice when you sit on it.
The whole thing took me about three hours to assemble. The instructions were straightforward and easy to follow. Surprisingly, everything fit together well, and the finished product seems very sturdy. I did have to make one small tweak to one of the drawer slides because the drawer was sitting a bit high. My recommendation would be to make sure all the drawers are functioning properly BEFORE installing the back panel.
My only real complaint would be a distinct odor coming from the baskets and the cushion. It's not horrible, but I think it's worth mentioning. I assume it will dissipate over time.
Overall, this product lived up to my expectations, and I would highly recommend it.

Beautiful bench! Not an entry level build, more intermediate. No pre-assembled parts. You have to put EVERYTHING together. Took me about 2 hours with my 3 children home. Cushion takes a while to pop back into shape after sitting on it. Overall quality is excellent! I would highly recommend it. We finally have some organization for our shoes! I wish the baskets were a bit bigger. My six year old has 4 pairs of shoes in the basket and 2 pairs of flip flops in the drawer. But my older boys and myself have to struggle to squeeze 2 pairs of sneakers in there. However the drawer is good to use for a pair of flip flops or slides. We just moved the extra shoes into their closets. ;o)

This storage bench is beautiful! It is as beautiful in person as it is in the picture. but it only got three stars, I'd rather poke myself in the eye with a pencil, than put this thing together again. The instructions were wrong, not just bad but wrong. I had to use my own brain to realize they were giving me bad info, I put it together as I thought it should be and luckily I was correct, had I followed the instructions in more than 1 step I would have had to take the whole thing apart twice, and yes, that means I did take it apart once already.The next time I spend over $300 on a piece of furniture, someone else will have put it together for me, to spend this much money this thing should have been a bit easier inetall. It's very heavy, the wood is great, I have no complaints there, but I actually built a drawer (now I can go into business for myself), they could have at least done that for us!

Be careful about washing the cushion cover!
I love this bench! However, our darn cat threw up on it, so I unzipped the cover and threw it in the washing machine and it totally shrunk and lost it's cream/tan color! The cover is now more of a peach color and we can no longer fit the foam cushion inside the cover. So, be very careful if you decide to wash the cover!
Is there a way for me to purchase a new cover for this bench?
