This hall tree has saved my foyer!
Amy from Charlotte, NC – Verified Buyer
I had looked online for weeks trying to find a halltree that I could either go look at in person or order online. I had just started buying from Wayfair 2 months prior, and hadn't been disappointed with the other 2 purchases. Because of that, my husband and I decided to go ahead with the hall tree. Once again, thanks Wayfair, we are glad we did. We were short a few of the wood plugs (to cover the screws), and hadn't realized it until I ran out while I still had holes to cover! AT that point it's too late as you can't pull them out and rearrange. Wished I had counted them better before I got started as I wouldn't have used the plugs to cover the holes on top of the unit where no one will see them! Don't be like me in this regard! And as others have noted, the springs were tough to get screwed in, but I understand why they need to be tight. Only reason I gave a 4 instead of 5 is because we didn't have enough plugs.. Overall - happy!!
Wonderful and sturdy
Anne from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer
I cannot tell you how happy I am with this piece of furniture. It is very sturdy and well crafted. It was super easy to put together - took me about an hour. The hooks are very strong and the bench has soft close hinges. It arrived in just 3 days and was very well padded with foam in the box. The hardware was separated nicely into little bags which were all labeled and they included extra of some screws - always a nice touch. Overall I am very happy. It makes my entryway look very warm and inviting.
NICE ADDITION TO ROOM
LISA from MERIDIANVILLE, AL – Verified Buyer
I PURCHASED THIS HALL TREE FOR MY BACK DOOR WHERE WE ALWAYS THROW OUR THINGS WHEN WE WALK IN THE DOOR. IT WAS EASY TO PUT TOGETHER AND LOOKS PRETTY NICE NOW THAT IT IS FINISHED. IT IS NOT EXACTLY SQUARE AS THE LID ON THE BENCH IS CLOSER ON ONE SIDE THAN THE OTHER AND SOME OF THE SEAMS ARE NOT AS CLOSE TOGETHER AS THEY SHOULD BE. HOLES ARE PREDRILLED SO THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY IT CAN BE PUT TOGETHER AND I GUESS I AM THE ONLY ONE WHO ACTUALLY LOOKED AT IT THAT CLOSE. OTHER THAN THIS, I REALLY LOVE THIS HALL TREE AND IT IS QUITE FUNCTIONAL!!!

We bought this entry hall tree over 6 months ago and we are still thrilled with it. My husband found it very easy to assemble and it looks great in our entryway. It is the perfect height and width for that area. Although we use it as a coat hanger on the colder months (not that many in TX), we primarily use it for all things puppy. We have 3 dogs and this is the perfect spot to "hide" all their gear yet have it at the ready near the front door. More than worth the price!
Catherine from Enterprise, AL – Verified Buyer
The hallway tree arrived in wonderful condition. It looks just like the picture and fits perfectly in our entryway. We are very happy with our purchase, the only problem was that the hinges for the seat were really difficult to install and the hardware that held them to the seat was inadequate. We had to go to the hardware store for something a little more heavy-duty. It only cost us a couple of dollars, though, so all-in-all, we are extremely happy with the item!
Solid piece, looks great, very happy
Megan from Pullman, WA – Verified Buyer
I bought this to store my kids' coats and shoes. It works great. The best thing is the storage lid has a spring that prevents it from slamming, which keeps the noise down and prevents most finger slamming disasters. It's real wood which is awesome and was easy to put together. Instructions were clear. The only down side is the back piece doesn't stand straight up, it leans forward, which is only noticeable from the side but I see the side so I notice it. Other than that I am super happy with the piece and price.
Works well for it's purpose.
Judy from Omaha, NE – Verified Buyer
It went together very easily. It was missing some little plugs to cover the screws, but the hardware store had something similar to work, not a perfect match, but I was satisfied with the hardware plugs. I would have like to have had a little wire/metal circle on the sides to hold umbrellas too. I like it and it looks good. Works for what I wanted it for. Any scratches or dents it gets add character. :) I like character. Pros: fits space perfectly, went togeter easily Cons: missing parts (I expected that since others said the same thing about this product.)
Ines from Wakefield, MA – Verified Buyer
Assembly took a while but we have had this entryway hall tree for about 8 months now and it looks great and works great! CONS: the little wooden pieces to cover the screws pop out easily (possibly when wood expands/ contracts with temperature? Not a big deal. Also the pieces that would prevent the storage box top from closing too quickly did not fit on ours so we just did not install that piece. Again not a huge deal but I think if it comes with it, it should work. Overall still love this piece of furniture and we'll have it for a very long time I am sure.
Potential to be absolutely great!
Sean from Houston, TX – Verified Buyer
I searched for a long time to find a hall bench with tree to fit my little nook by the front door that is exactly 41" wide. This fit the bill and is of a cherry stain mission style to match my other hard wood furniture. First let me say I too was shorted 2 wood plugs so 2 screw holes are undressed but luckily I read the reviews before hand and was able to hide the two holes without plugs on the side up against the wall. The reason for only 3 stars (would give it 3 1/2 if I could) is simple, the finish on the front and back of the bench is awful, looks like someone threw on one coat while the wood was dirty or wet maybe. Then as if that wasn't bad enough, forgot to put on the final top coat so it's dull and spotty unlike the rest of the pieces that have a nice deep warm cherry color. The other knock is for the same reason others have pointed out, the gap between the seat/lid and the side pieces is excellent on one side but the other is over a quarter inch off in the front but touching in the back. It's just bad QC. A couple pieces had splits where they glued them together, not well obviously. As for the hinges I found that holding the spring side and pulling the other hinged end with some pliers while having someone else insert a flat blade screw driver into the gap was the easiest way to compress them so you can easily install them on the bench. Then once attached simply slightly close the lid and the screw driver (our screw driver bit) will simply fall/slide out. Would I buy again, at the sale price yes, full price absolutely NO. Spend a little more and get a true hard wood piece, this one will leave you disappointed. The good news is the bench is covered by backpacks at my house and the front is low enough that unless you look close and/or long at it you don't notice the awful finish. I also have some touch up markers for my other solid wood furniture so I used them to try and get rid of the spotting on the front, but it doesn't help the dull appearance. Seeing how this is going to be used and most likely abused by my kids I am not totally disappointed with the piece and the sale price (approx $250) is on point for the quality. The assembly is not too difficult and overall it fit my needs. It does have nice style and it looks very nice aside from aforementioned issues.
It has not been assembled yet!

It was delivered a day before it was scheduled with me, which was a problem because I ws not there. However a nice neighbor found it and brought it in. He then brought it to me the next day, when I arrived and I have unpacked the parts. Because I am waiting for my son to have time to put it together, I'm not sure how to give you an accurate report. I do like that all of the wood pieces are finished front and back, on all surfaces. I will give you a better report after my son has put it together for me.
