This bench is exactly what I was looking for and for just the right price!! The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because I was just a little dissapointed in the fact that when you put the hinges on the inside, the seat only lifts up a few inches. Also, one of our hinges was bent so we ended up just not using them. The seat slams a bit if you aren't careful, but overall I really like our new bench!
Great bench needs help with assembly
Pamela from Kensington, CA– Verified Buyer
This is a lovely piece, exactly what I wanted and as described. Installing the safety hinges was tricky. BTW these hinges prevent the bench top from going any higher that what is pictured and also from slamming shut too quickly or loudly. The instructions aren't clear, but the spring part of the hinges should be facing the side edges. Also, there were four extra wooden dowels, not sure why.

I placed this bench at the foot of a queen size bed. Gave my bedroom a new look to my oak bedroom furniture.

Was nice to find a real wood bench, as opposed to the plywood of so many other pieces. Assembly was a bit difficult, and when you open the bench there are staples visible in one spot where they shouldn't be. Otherwise, for the price, a great piece. Perfect size, it's not overly large, and yet we can fit so much stuff in it! We have it by our front door and use it for shoes, bags, etc.

I started putting it together and found the glue sent with it was old and dried. The momentum of puttin it together was lost a little having to go and get glue. The instructions could be better in regard to attaching the hinges, they are still not on the cover. Otherwise, it fits well and does what it is supposed to do.

OK, I am old school, men always put everything together but, I was mighty proud of myself when I was able to put this together without a problem, it looks great placed under a large portrait with a throw draped over it. It is a great storage bench, but I would not recommend it for seating.
Looks great, fast delivery
Harold from Wichita, KS– Verified Buyer
Quality product and fast delivery. I do recommend that you have a helper during assembly--I didn't. It makes it a little harder with just one because you have to hold several parts together while assembling others. It looks just like in the picture. The finish is excellent. I've shown it to several friends and they were impressed with it.
what we needed
Nancy from Marquette, MI– Verified Buyer
Love the bench. It is what we needed in our mud room for mittens, scarves, hats and a place to take off our boots. The thing that was supposed to keep the lid from closing was a mystery to us though, so we did not use it. This is the only caveat I would give to others with kids. The lid stays up, but kids might let it slam.
Teri from Minneapolis, MN– Verified Buyer
This is nicer than I expected it to be for the price. The lid stays open on it's own, but doesn't go up more than in the photo. Overall great buy.
An unexpected and welcomed surprise.

I LOVE my Somerton Entryway Storage Bench! It is much more than I expected for the price I paid. It is not only "beautiful" (as echoed by neighbors and family), but is built solidly and fits in with my furniture PERFECTLY. I will definitely continue to recommend this outstanding product from "Wayfair". I could not have made a more satisfactory purchase.
