Super storage!CSP3Bought it to hold all the miscellaneous pool stuff. It looks great and hold a ton of stuff! We are very pleased! Bonus points because it was on sale!!5
Really nice pieceStephanieO301I really like this piece for its size and weight. It's not too heavy, and the wheels make it easy to move. We store three of the Applaro folding chairs in it and will purchase a second one to store six seat cushions. My only real complaint is the bottom slats are very wide apart, much more than the top and sides. I'm a little concerned about a small animal climbing in. It was a little tough to put together, as you'll need some extra tools and patience to make it work well, but certainly doable without professional or taskrabbit support. I might suggest putting the wheels on first to give you a little more room to maneuver in the corner. Also, there is no Tostero cover that fits this well. I purchased a much larger one to make it work. It would be nice to have one that fit a bit more snugly.5
Great qualityKristygonzalezI got this about a month ago and as I was putting it together I was really impressed with the hardware and how sturdy it is. The hinges are very heavy duty.5
Quality attractive storageCalMarBLooks great and is sturdy. I own one of these for a few years it stood up to morning sun and rain very well. Just purchased three more on sale. I had been searching for months for more of these units. Thanks Ikea.5
Great storage benchmomcat2Perfect bench/storage box. We have it right by our front door, and use it for both storage and a place to sit groceries while unlocking the door. Very handy!4
mariacalgirlUsing it as a laundry hamper, and it works very well5
Great storageTellezI bought this for my patio and use it for all my chair covers and pool accessories5
Sturdy and pretty storage benchIkke1Love it for on my porch. Plenty space and good quality. Only minus: not a standard size, so finding storage boxes and pillows for the top is hard. If IKEA made those to fit, that'd be super, but they don't unfortunately.5
So Far We Love itTX MomPurchased this bench over storage benches from other retailers because the bottom is open and not solid. We use it to store the kids toys and I didn’t want water collection in the bottom so that mosquitoes would breed... this is a big problem around here. It fits what I need it to fit and still keeps my patio looking like adults can use it too!5
Looks greatLarcinVery happy with the double function a bench and storage5
A Stylish ClassicWorking ManEasy to put together, quality solid material makes for a stylish classic.5

tito1012Fits a ton! Doesn't come with a bag, which we kind of wish it did, but we still love it and it looks great.5
Very nicehollya6This is perfect for our patio to our towels in by the pool. It offers an additional pool seat.5
Great outdoor storage bench!!!Joan65Not hard to put together, very sturdy, and great for my outdoor pool stuff!5
Warped within a monthMetroMimiI bought this just over a month ago to store patio cushions on my deck. The lid is already badly warped and won't close. I also bought the compatible waterproof storage bag, it's not waterproof. I've already returned the bag and plan to return this bench when I have the time to disassemble it and drive it back to the store.2
Great storage benchCraiCraiWe bought this for short term deck storage. It was fairly easy to assemble. Good for the price during the sale. Slat openininga on the bottom are a bit wide, so it is not ideal for anything small5
Works greatGrace RExcellent ventilation, good amount of storage space. We find that it's large enough to store outdoor cushions and also5
Great for apartment storageTimicthe 4 stars rating is because you definitely need 2 people and about an hour and a half to assemble correctly. I love this piece in my apartment! I have a lack of closet space and I amusing it to store my vacuum sealed winter coats during the warmer months here in NYC as well as a TV stand for my 42 flat screen TV. I. Now, I have more under bed storage to utilize! Love this piece :-)4
Love thismknuppI bought this to store my kids outdoor toys. It fits so much in there and is great that the bottom of it is slatted so toys can dry off and the water doesn't ruin the wood.5

Furniture for you and the environment

Wood is a fantastic material: flexible and beautiful, durable and renewable. Ever since IKEA started, we’ve used wood as a raw material. We’re a global company and have a great responsibility to ensure that our production has a positive effect on people and the environment throughout the world. That’s why our goal for 2020 is that all wood which we use is to come from more sustainable sources. With the ÄPPLARÖ series, we’ve already achieved this goal – by finding various new wood species to work with.

Today we’ve achieved the goal that all the wood which we use for our outdoor furniture comes from more sustainable sources, which means that it is certified or recycled wood. The transition has been a given for us at IKEA, but it has also been a challenge. Much of the wood used for our outdoor furniture comes from Southeast Asia, where it has been difficult to gain a good insight into the entire process from forest and sawmills to the factory. But through close cooperation with suppliers and local authorities, we’ve achieved the result, says Ulf Johansson, who works with wood supply and forestry. "More sustainable forestry requires perseverance and long-term thinking, since profits are not achieved quickly, and many of our growers are small companies with limited resources. But we have been able to support them in this process both financially and in terms of knowledge-sharing", says Ulf.

Tough demands on life outdoors

Outdoor furniture must be durable, and throughout history, teak, which is a very hard wood, has been a popular choice of material. But the availability of teak produced in a more sustainable way is far too small, so to achieve our goal, we started looking for alternative wood types. Ove Lindén is an engineer and was working for IKEA in Malaysia when he discovered acacia's positive qualities in the early 2000s. "At the time it was not used for furniture, but was grown mainly for the paper industry. But when we saw people also made fence posts from acacia, we supposed it was resistant to rotting and durable ‒ and would also suit outdoor furniture. In addition, it has a beautiful color tone, just like teak", says Ove, and explains how acacia, which grows mainly in Malaysia and Vietnam, is grown on plantations where IKEA can have a good overview of the entire necessary production chain.

A type of wood to trust

Today, we use acacia for, among other things, ÄPPLARÖ, one of our most long-living outdoor furniture series. Over the years, new items have been added, and today ÄPPLARÖ is found in outdoor environments throughout the world. Ove Lindén has a theory of why it has become so long-lived. "It's a timeless and neutral series that suits many surroundings. In addition, over the years we’ve been able to streamline production and thereby keep the price down." The discovery of acacia has made us curious about finding more wood species from sustainable forestry. The journey continues towards higher quality and increased durability ‒ for you who use the furniture, yet also for people and the environment throughout the world where our furniture is manufactured.

Lovable durable acacia

Acacia is a naturally durable and sturdy hardwood for outdoor use because of the high density of its wood fibers. For maximum protection it’s pre-treated with wood stain. By re-staining now and then you can enjoy it for many years.
