Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality construction I had this bench made with COM fabric. The ordering process went smoothly, the bench arrived in perfect condition and in the time frame that I was told it would arrive. I am very pleased with the quality of the construction, both with the frame and the fabrication. I would definitely recommend this product. August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features, especially the amount of storage space and the sturdy top that stays open . Such a nice custom accent piece to any room, especially a bedroom. The stay open top allows you to have both hands available to put away your items in the large storage area. The nail heads adds a great decorator touch for decor too! August 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by storage bench I am very happy with the bench. I have looked for a storage bench for the foot of my bed for quite some time, and when the grey velvet fabric was added as an option, I ordered it immediately. Delivery was as promised, the quality was very good. May 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wish I could fix! Love the style & comfort. Disappointed that the lid had creases in the fabric that did not steam out & there are obvious threads left under the fabric. Love the space inside and the opening hinge. However, the smell inside has still not dissipated. The smell is terrible! It was well packaged & I received it undamaged. August 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great bench! I ordered this bench after a lot of searching. I wanted a good sized bench with a lid that stayed up. It came in a timely manner and fully assembled..just needed to be unpacked. I LOVE this bench..the fabric is beautiful and the bench is so well crafted. It is just a beautiful piece of furniture, I could not be more pleased with this purchase! June 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well made storage bench. I searched all over for a storage bench that could hold a lot of items and offer comfortable seating. This bench has it all, plus you can choose a beautiful fabric to complement your existing decor. The hinges are very strong and allow the top to open fully. The price difference compared to lower end models is worth the extra money. May 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This bench has great storage. I love my Amelia storage bench. It fits perfectly at the end of my queen size bed and allows me to store a ton of stuff inside. I did upgrade the fabric to micro fiber suede and it came out beautiful in color and style. The only small down side is the the top of the bench were one sits, the fabric has become a little stretched out/loose in a very short time period (less than a month). March 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made and looks great, solves a problem! I needed storage space and this seemed to be a good idea. The fast service (since I had it special ordered) was amazing and it looks beautiful at the end of my bed. This would look great in many areas! March 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! This storage bench was just what I needed to complete the room. I bought the upholstered daybed with trundle a couple of months ago & decided I needed some kind of footstool or bench to go in the room as well. I was thrilled to find this storage bench...especially since I could have it covered in the same fabric as the daybed...and it gives me a place to store blankets & pillows when the bed & trundle are not in use. I love it! February 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Arrived today! Very well protected during shipping. Love the feet and the nail head trim and am happy with the fabric I chose (Lorenzo putty). Great customer service. February 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a perfect bench! Everything about my bench is just right. Good color from matching swatch. Nice construction. Lovely hinges on lid. Just right height for sitting. Love it. January 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great storage bench This is the second Amelia storage bench that I have purchased from Ballards. I like the size and roomy storage it provides for the foot of a bed besides providing the perfect sitting, comfy bench to put your shoes on, take your boots off, etc. There is more than ample room to keep my winter blankets, quilts and extra pillows there. I even improved on its use by unscrewing the round feet it comes with and replacing them with screw on rollers. I simple love both of my Amelia benches, in guest room and master bedroom. I shopped around for other storage benches with wheels and ended up returning one because it did not provide half the storage room that one gets with the Amelia bench. October 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Accent Piece Very pleased with the Amelia bench. Ballard did a really nice job of upholstering with my fabric, and the whole process went very smoothly in a most timely manner. Now I have an attractive bench with plenty of storage space! September 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by well made storage bench, lovely detail I supplied my own fabric (velvet) after viewing the options and not feeling like there was enough variety, and found it to be less expensive in the end. The bench is well-crafted and roomy, the studs give it a nice touch. June 11, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful product with a great look I needed this storage bench for our sunporch to store blankets and pillows for grandchildren and Sunday afternoon naps. The bench certainly fills my requirements. I was first most disappointed over the delay in shipment. Apparently the bench was available but not the material I chose. The bench also has a very strange odor to it. I don't know if it is the bench or the material. Hopefully it will go away with time. Nowhere does it say that the bench is for sitting and I certainly don't think the quality is such that it would hold up for a lot of weight. Price a little high for the quality but I believe the cost is more for the look. Upholstery workmanship excellent. May 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made and sturdy This bench is very well made. It looks great in my bedroom. May 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Should not have waited so long I had my eye on this bench for a while and after reading other reviews decided to order. I could not be happier. I love the way it opens even when up against the wall. The soft close is very nice and the fabric is excellent. Thank you very much - I think brides should put this bench on their registry. April 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made! I provided the fabric & this custom storage bench arrived about a month later. It is very well made and exactly as I envisioned. I recommend it highly! April 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Customizing fabric is easy! I sent in my own fabric and Ballards upholstered the bench for me. It only took a few weeks and it looks gorgeous! April 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great storage I bought the Amelia storage bench for the bottom of our king bed. It's well made and I love the Ashford paisley fabric. The lid can prop open and closes slowly for safety. It is everything I had hoped for. I have had other upholstered items from Ballard and was never disappointed. April 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very high quality The upholstery is beautiful craftsmanship and the bench itself is very high quality. When I open the bench it doesn't hit the wall. The hardware allows the lif to glide forward a bit and then open fully. Genius! April 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid construction and great function This bench is just what we needed. It is roomy inside and can fit 2 quilts and a king size pillow. It looks great and our bed is less cluttered looking. I had ordered a bench from another company but when they delayed the order for the second time, I cancelled that order. I'm glad I took the chance to order from your company. I will order from Ballard Design again. April 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surpassed Expections I ordered several pieces in the Desert Chenille fabric. I wanted to share the finished product with you. If you are considering this piece, have no worries, its just fabulous. I love the fact it is made in the US, maybe the fabric is not. And more so the construction is very satisfactory. I do suggest in taking the time to pick out some swatches you may be considering and check on the texture and color, so you will not have any unexpected disappointments. Colors so vary on the computer. February 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, well-made and functional! We bought this bench as a gift for my mother-in-law and she absolutely loves it! Very nice quality, and a great fabric option given how many leather and wood choices there seem to be! February 8, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great storage bench This bench is really well made, not chintzy. It's comfortable to sit on and is so functional. I have it at the end of my queen size bed and it looks great and has enough room to store a quilt, sheet sets and towels. It can hold a lot more too. I used my own fabric bc I was going for a specfic look but there were many nice ones to choose from. The customer service was great too, the factory saw something in my fabric and sent it back for me to look at and ok. They were very detailed oriented in the production process. The only negative was the smell inside but I'm sure it will subside in time. January 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this bench This storage bench seems sturdy and well built and it provides a ton of storage at the end of our bed. It looks great, too, and I love the nail head detail. December 31, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amelia Bench - custom fabric We had shopped for a bench for the end of our king bed for some time without success and decided to buy fabric that matched our decor. Having provided my own patterned fabric, I was delighted with the end product, which arrived as scheduled. Ballard's customer service was excellent--from the initial inquiry to scheduling the delivery. I would highly recommend this company. December 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really lovely I ordered several fabrics swatches before buying this bench and I am happy that I did so. It is very easy to chose once you see the real colours. The bench is great, perfect size and great quality. I have a modern bedroom and mixing in a more traditional piece makes it more personal. Love it! It will last for years. December 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, well made! I have ordered several upholstered items from Ballard Designs and I am extremely pleased with each piece. I get so many compliments. November 16, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by happy camper had this bench upholstered in my own fabric that i sent in. the final product looks great -- very well made and seems to be a solid, functional bench. October 30, 2011
