The storage bench I have at the end of my bed serves two purposes- storage for gym clothes and a stepping stone for my dogs to get onto my bed. Since my dogs use it to jump onto my bed the one I had start to tear and actually sag where they would plant their legs so I decided it was time to buy a new one. I had kept my eyes open for a while (always a good idea if you aren't in a rush to buy something), saw some good options, but wanted to keep the price down (at least mostly). I knew I wanted espresso/brown for the color and this time around I wanted one that looked more "mature."
I was able to find this one, Hartley Tufted Storage Bench - Brown Faux Leather, from Target and so far so good! I love that it is tufted so it makes it look a bit fancier/mature, it is a little longer than my other one and it has little legs which helps since my Roomba can now get under to clean. My one negative comment is that it is a bit shallower than the other one I had so although it is longer, it doesn't fit all that much more than the other. That being said, it does fit a bit more, which made it possible for me to free up a basket I kept under my bed with zippies/jackets for the gym. Those are now in the bench. The bench is a bit taller, which was a slight adjustment for the dogs, but works for them and for me.
Overall, pleased with my purchase!
Note- this specific one seems to be sold out now, but Target has others that are similar! Check them out here!
