This bench is lightweight but looks very solid. It is a great color, and the mix of leather, wood, and metal was exactly what I wanted. We have it in the family room and it is mostly decorative but very handy when a lot of people are over. I plan to get it in white for our bedroom if it is still available.
I have three of these benches in brown, and LOVE them. I was concerned about the shade of red, sometimes the photos are deceiving, but its a very nice red, not like a christmas red , a deeper red than that, but in the same tone. Our front window is very low, and we needed more seating in the living room, nothing else would really work in front of the window, these benches are much lower than you would expect, but its perfect for what I needed. ( read dimensions ) . I got them for extra company to sit, but our dogs love them, we had to buy two, and they lounge out there all day long. There is a rush with the dogs trying to get their places before someone else sits there! The benches are very light weight with a modern appeal, yet the leatherand wood frame adds a rustic feel. Some reviews have said that they are not leather, they are leather- have a protective coating of some sort on them which is throwing some people off. The straps that hold the bench to the wood are not leather, however. The price I was able to find them at Overstock. com are fantastic compared to other websites. I did have a button or two come off from the dogs on them constantly, but i used a type of super glue and they immediate adhered and have stayed on for a year or two at least. I am very happy with them.
I read another review that the bench was slightly smaller than the description, so I ordered it for a smaller space that needed a bench and Bang-O!, not only did the bench fit, the color is amazing in person!! Love this bench. What a great deal on the sale price too!
I needed a 'cool' splash of color for my entry way. This sturdy little bench does the trick. It is comfortable, nice looking, and easy to assemble. I enjoy it and I have gotten compliments on it. It goes great with sort of modern décor.
This is a lovely bench - looks very much as the picture shows it. It was easy to assemble. The only complaint I have is that the bench is so low to the ground that tall people won't want to use it! We have it in our office and decided to move it out of the reception area for which it was intended, because it's not a practical height. Looks great, but not suited for just any body!
At this price point we were not expecting the highest quality of workmanship or materials, but this bench vastly exceeded our expectations. It is beautifully designed and appears well constructed. The leather is of appropriate quality for the intended usage and the color is a rich dark red that should be easy to incorporate into most design schemes. The walnut-stained birch frame and chrome legs complement the contemporary styling. The bench arrived very well packaged and was in perfect condition. Assembly consisted of attaching the four legs with four screws each using the enclosed Allen wrench and took all of about 10 minutes. We are using this piece as an ottoman for a loveseat and it works perfectly for this purpose as well as for additional occasional seating. The height is ideal for an ottoman but a bit less than ideal for seating. Since there has been and continues to be some confusion over the dimensions of this product, I wanted to post the exact measurements of our piece. It is 15 inches high x 50 inches wide x 18 inches deep.
Bought this piece for a grooming salon. Sits against a window but does not overpower it. Customers love it. Nice quality, super easy to assemble and looks fantastic! No complaints! Would purchase this item again and recommend it to my friends.
Took me 5 minutes to put together (i used a drill I had with a wrench attachment). Very happy with the look, could be slightly taller, but fine for my purposes.

It arrived good, although there was a knife mark on the packaging, thankfully nothing was damaged inside. Assembly was a left hand job. I was short of one screw though....I just had similar ones at home so used one of it. I have it at the food of my bed. I have a accent pillow of the same color (burnt red) and it this piece helps me co-ordinate my room. (Color combos: White, Black, Silver, Navy Blue, Burnt Red)
