This makes an awesome addition to any living space. One customer said she loved her new storage bench. They use it as a coffee table substitute and have a tray of candles placed on top. It is an awesome light burlap color which goes with their country rustic furniture very nicely. The best part is that it comes assembled and has place for storage! They are about to have a baby, so it’s less of a hazard in the living room than a coffee table and it’s a place for toys if they need it to be. Thumbs up!

Keep in mind that this bench is not burgundy, it is an orange color exactly like you see in the picture (which is what some people wanted and bought it for). They said the loved the fact that the storage space inside of the bench is completely open without any trays or dividers getting in the way. The lid opens easily. The material has a thick weave of threads, which is nice. The bench is very sturdy and comfortable to sit on. It looks great in bedrooms and you can quilted comforter, sheets, and throw pillows inside of it. As far as pros go, it offers great value, it is durable, it provides good storage space, and it looks expensive.

One buyer ordered and received this ottoman in the coral color despite the fact that it says beige. Despite this faux pas, it fits great in tight spaces and adds comfortable seating and additional storage. You will be very happy with this product!


As for cons, this storage ottoman serves its purpose which is to store throw pillows and provide an additional seating area for the likes of guest rooms and living rooms. It looks good and is nice and sturdy. The only issue some people had was the way it is put together. The left side is not lined up with the box opening all the time, causing the right side to overhang. It could be that the quality control department in the factory missed it but the price is good enough.

All in all, because it provides storage that is deeper than expected (which is a very good thing) and shipping is true to two-day/free despite the issues with mail services countrywide (isn’t it exciting to receive things on time?), the color can be much darker than expected. This item, for the version that looks like it, is more orange-red than bright coral as the photo shows. Lastly, it is higher than a standard futon, so it can’t really be used as a footrest properly, but the height of it is not bad and you can still use it for storage and as a work surface. The main issue is the darkness of the color that turned some people off. The strength of the closer seems very sturdy. The delivery box can be very flimsy (could be better for the environment), but don’t let the flimsy box make you think it’s not protected, because the packaging size and wrapping kept it safe from damage. It would be hard to damage a cushioned box inside a box. In terms of cushion, the top is not very cushy. It’s rather hard but still has a good appearance otherwise with the wood legs and nailheads. The lining on the inside seems loosely applied and could’ve been tucked in or tightened more. But otherwise, as mentioned above, it is a nice item for the price it costs. Most buyers were pretty pleased with the purchase, other than the color, which was an issue for a few people.


The negative reviews notwithstanding, most buyers were happy with their purchase of the Oakford Upholstered Storage Bench. It takes some time to put together, it comes well packed and has the perfect size holes for assembly. If you are looking for a classy piece of furniture that is not too expensive and comes in the right color and design themes that one would want for a storage ottoman to accentuate a teen’s room or to reinvigorate any living or sleeping space in the home, this ottoman would be ideal. It comes with an overall rating of 4.7 across over 5000 unique reviews. Considering the fact that we rarely see overall reviews of 4.8 for any item, this ottoman is a real winner and is something that will give you years of use and looks. It is not expensive and is easy to set up and install so it can be easily replaced as well, making it a good and functional piece of furniture to deck your home out in.
