Bought this for our bedroom. When I was unpacking and verifying parts, I noticed that even though the box had NO damage, there was a huge ding on one of the corners of the bottom. Thankfully all the sides are painted, so I could move it to the back where it won't be seen. Disappointing that there seems to be no real standard of quality assurance at the manufacturing facility though.
As an IKEA pro, I'm no stranger to putting together furniture like this. The dividers for the cube storage were a NIGHTMARE to keep in place while tightening the lock nuts. If you're set on this, I'd definitely use an extra set of hands!
The last thing that is lackluster is the thickness of the cushion. Since it is in a bedroom, our son likes to use it to sit on to play video games. After a short time he needs to shift or move spots. Not a genuine concern to anyone who is just using it for a foyer or mud room to put on and take off shoes though.
As for the actual piece of furniture, it is a great height, the storage space is perfect and after it is correctly assembled, it seems perfectly sturdy thus far. Genuinely awesome for the price point.
