Solano Storage Bench is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks nice, but awful smell I purchased two of these storage benches to go at the ends of my boy's beds to store clothes. Unfortunately, they smell so strongly of chemicals that we are unable to use them to store clothes. I've tried numerous times to get rid of the smell, but to no avail. It's unlikey that I will purchase any big ticket items from GR in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Looking Bench - BUT... I have been a long-standing customer of Grandin Road and have loved all my purchases through the years. Until now! Unfortunately, the Solano Storage Bench does not live up to Grandin Road standards. I purchased this Bench from Grandin Road October 13th, 2014 and it was delivered on Oct. 16th, 2014. Just 6-months young and already the product is failing. Should you brush-up against it there is a good chance that parts of the sea grass will flake off, as well as, lose some of the color of the sea grass (I have the Java color). When you ‘sit’ on the bench you will hear a crackling sound that you would think you were stepping of a bunch of fallen leaves. I am not sure if it has “dried” out to the point where it will not hold up to everyday use. Don’t dare to place your foot on it as the sea grass will just break-apart. Unfortunately, if it was still within the 90-day return period, I would have Grandin Road pick this item up for a refund. Although it looks stunning from afar, it is not a useful item. I am EXTREMELY disappointed with this order. I will not give up on Grandin Road just yet, but I would NOT recommend this item at all, whatsoever, unless you plan on just looking at it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very High Quality The bench was very well packaged and arrived in a timely fashion. Very high quality and exactly as pictured. The inside is finished in a very nice dark wood finish. We have this at the foot of our bed to hold extra linens. It looks great. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sylish The Solano storage bench looks great in our bedroom. Using the bench while putting on shoes is very helpful and I love that when I take something out of the bench, the lid does not hit me on the head; the lid stays up until I am ready to close it!

How much weight can the bench support?

I noticed that the answer to another customer's question was that this bench was not appropriate for adult seating. Since this product is in fact marketed as a "bench," I'm wondering for what size person this bench was designed? Doesn't the word "bench" imply that it was, in fact, made for seating? What size/weight person can safely sit on this bench without it warping the shape of the bench? The description says that the bench is made of a hardwood frame.....I would assume that a bench made of hardwood could support a person unless the hardwood frame is just along the edges of the interior. Could you please provide more explanation as to what size person this bench can support as well as the specifics on whether or not the hardwood frame is an actual lining that covers the entire interior of the trunk or whether it has just a hardwood frame around the interior edges? Thank you!

Albeit the "bench" looks very nice in the photos posted on the website, it is definitely NOT a bench to sit on. My intention was to use it as a storage bench for my shoes. Unfortunately, I sat on it without even considering that it was not a "sitting" bench (as opposed to there being another kind of bench), and heard a few loud 'crunches' as the sea grass felt extremely dry. So now that I couldn't sit on the "bench" I thought well if I put my shes on and then use it as a resting place to tie my shoes that might work - NOPE! The color of the sea grass comes off and the sea grass itself flakes! This is a museum piece that is NOT intended for use! What a WASTE of my hard earned $$$'s!!! I am so infuriated and disappointed that I think everyone should know and not be misled! A TOTALLY DISSATISFIED CUSTOMER (that is passed the return point)
