This is bicast leather (plastic exterior), which is never quite as nice as full-grain leather, but for the price it can't be beat. I purchased this bench last year to use as extra seating/coffee table/foot rest in my tiny living room, where I have a love seat and chair instead of a sofa. Fits this use perfectly! Looks just like the designer version. Not very heavy, though (so don't sit on one of the edges, or it turns into a catapult for whatever is on the other end). I am pleased with this purchase and know it will fit well into any future decorating scheme (classic, eclectic, modern, etc).

Thank you for writing this review for the Andalucia Leather/ Walnut Wood Bench. After researching your complaint, we can confirm that the item is indeed real leather. We have updated our product description to reflect this.
I bought this bench to add a bit of inconspicuous seating in my living room. Boy was I wrong in thinking it would be inconspicuous! Everyone who comes to my house compliments me on it. And I agree - it is a really wonderful piece. It sits at a comfortable distance from the floor and is a very sturdy piece. I've had it now for about eight months and it is in the same shape it was in when I put it together, despite daily use. As far as putting it together -- it was a breeze. I just had to attach the legs to the bench. That's it. It took all of five minutes. So, long story short, highly recommended. I'm very, very happy with this piece.

Good initial quality, no complaints so far. As other reviews suggest, this piece will fit in with other new and period mid-century modern furniture (think Mies Van Der Rohe designs). Mine fits in fine with original pieces and more expensive "design within reach" pieces fairly well. Right scale and proportions for this sort of bench. Materials and consturction suggest they will hold up to moderate to light use. Tailoring of leather is very nice. Inclusion of swatch of leather was an unexpected and useful touch. I'd buy more from this manufacture if only they would share who that is!
Love it. Ordered this bench from Overstock and it was a steal! Saw something nearly identical at ***** for over $****! I'm not sure yet what I'll do with the bench, but it is so versatile it's simply a matter of choosing from among good options...Highly recommended!
I really wasn't looking for a bench for my work area, but with three grandkids, I thought why not put a bench along my 'office' table and let them use the area. The bench is long enough for 3 little butts. This doesn't sound very elegant, but it makes the office area look very upscale and your eye goes right to this bench. As in other reviews, I have seen this style of bench for hundreds and even thousands of dollars. It is a staple in a mid-century home and decorating. I love this look and this bench is beautiful. I really don't care for bi-cast leather, but it is a sign of the times. It is a rich brown and easy to clean. I don't think you could go wrong with this if you intend to add it to your decor, especially if you are on a budget. Unbelieveable purchase for the price.

My wife picked this up and put it togther herself I thought she did something wrong because all the legs were crooked. I took all the legs off and noticed the welding was crooked so I had to bend each leg to get the bench to stand level. The legs are very poor quality and the rest of the bench is ok.
I must admit my taste is very discriminating and when I opened the shipping box, I was amazed at the beauty. I've seen benches like this one for $1000-$1500. This is a steal. Enjoy it.

This is a perfect small scale replica of the original classic design. It was easy to attach the legs, and it's lightweight yet sturdy. It works for extra seating, or as a place to put your feet up in front of a sofa.

I love these benches. Watch for the dimensions as they are very low. The color is exact - as mentioned in other reviews the straps are darler and not as great a quality but this is a sturdy and functional strap... Easy to assemble - allen wrench included - tool about 10 minutes per bench. High style - no one would know these are knock offs... I have them in my living room but they can be used in any room. Enjoy!

As always, arrived right away. This is exactly what I expected and I have it in my front foyer. With the white walls and modern decor, it looks great. Can withstand the use of a front entrance.

Love it!!! It has added l seating when needed, currently sits on a large wall under two paints. It is just lovely and was what I was looking for. It is comfortable easy to move if needed. It is firm and large enough for my husband to sit on it. I love it!! This piece looks like a piece I saw in xxxxxxxxxxxx but much more affordable.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Love the color dark brown

I'm very pleased with this bench -- bought it to put at the end of my bed, and it's a great fit. It looks far more expensive than it actually was and has already drawn several compliments from friends. Very good quality and substantial without being too heavy -- I even moved it into the living room for extra seating during a party the other day and it worked perfectly: it would seat about three people at a pinch. Highly recommended!
We've had this bench for over 3 years and it is still going strong! Our dogs have put some scratches on the material but other than that, it is holding up beautifully. It has a design that has transferred with out redecorating easily. very classic look.
I purchased this bench for our MBR to replace an existing fabric bench. I am very pleased w/the quality & the dbl stitching is a great look. For the price - it is a steal. It looks & feels so much more expensive than $$. I highly recommend this bench.
This bench is NOT real leather as advertised. A swatch is sent with the bench to lead you to believe it is cut from the cushion. There is a zipper on the underside of the cushion and if you unzip it you will find that the cushion is completely vinyl. My cat scatched the top of the cushion and it revealed the white backing of the vinyl. So if you're thinking you're getting a great deal for leather, not so!

Bench shipped quickly. The bench was easy to put together, You only have to screw on the legs. It is attractive from a distance but looks to be lower quality upon closer examination. I was very disappointed that the accent straps do not match the leather seat. They are made of a cheap black thick cut vinyl. The leather on the seat is of good quality. I have had several dogs climb up on it and the toenails have not yet scratched the leather. All in all, it is a good buy for the price. Just be aware of the color difference.
