I expected problems with the legs going into the holes, but we had no problems at all putting this together. It is SO heavy, tho, that I waited until I had more than one thing to do here and had a handyman come over and put it together. I would not suggest that most women put this together by themselves due to the weight of this bench, and really you need two people to flip it over once the legs are on. It looks great, works great and I would definitely recommend anyone to purchase this if they have a use for it. I'm hoping this lasts 20 years at least, and, since it's well made, I am guessing it will. I am very happy with this purchase!
This is a beautiful piece of furniture that looks much more expensive than it is. The details are very upscale and traditional looking and this piece is even more beautiful in person. We are using it as an accent piece near our formal dining room area. It goes beautifully with our mahogany table and china cabinet and would combine nicely with almost any medium to dark wood furniture as well as other upholstered pieces. We originally planned to use it in a formal living room as another accent piece and additional seating to section off an open floor plan, but it ended up looking too big for the space. This is a very long bench, so if you are looking for something to use in a small space, you may want something smaller. The width however makes for a slim profile and looks absolutely beautiful against a long wall as well as has adequate seating height. I could also see this working very well in a library or home office if leaning for a very traditional and upscale look. Only issue that I can mention is that I was looking for something without casters, but given it is against a wall and they are pretty low profile, it has become a non-issue.

This is exactly what I was looking for for our bedroom window. It's definitely a more executive classic look so it might not be for everyone. It is heavy and super easy to assemble...though you do need to realize the legs are zipped inside the seat before you call overstock and complain.
The bench looks just as pictured. Be aware that it is a BIG bench--we got it to use as an ottoman, and it runs almost the lenght of the 3 person couch. We knew that, and had measured, but it's still surprising how big it is in person. Very nice quality--many thanks to all who mentioned the legs being zipped in underneath--I would have been puzzled otherwise. Easy to assemble--I did it myself. The hardest part was turning it back over--it is a very solid bench.

Very firm tight tufted upholstery, a bit shiny but I knew that from other reviews. It's hard to find one this long, especially for this price. I wish it were not quite as wide. I bought it for the foyer, but can use it also for extra seating for the dining table, or could pull it into the living room in front of the fireplace if we need to seat a lot of guests. I like the shape of the legs and the small casters.

I bought this, but then had it recovered in a beautiful velvet (i have an affordable upholsterer, so it made it worth it), but the leather it came with is super cheap and ***-looking. Only worth it of you're planning to upgrade the material.
Beautiful bench - a bit longer than I expected. Very easy to put on 6 legs that are inside bench & can be accessed by unzipping the cloth under the bench.

Ended up being a great piece with some excellent design details. I actually bought this to be reupholstered in a different fabric - it was the perfect design!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Looks great but I question the quality of the leather.
Ths bench is very beautiful but....you sit on it & it sinks. I am not an overweight person either. It's almost like foam or padding is missing from underneight or something. I don't like the wheels on it either cause the bench IS NOT heavy & it rolls when you try to sit on it. Assembly was a breeze.

Love this ottoman, it's well worth the price. It looks very expensive. The turned legs are black and have casters and the nailheads are an antiqued brass. The leather is a very deep brown, just short of appearing black. Overall, I hilghly recommend this piece.

I bought this bench for the end of the bed - it was exactly what I was looking for. The box arrived in good condition; the construction was simple (screw the six legs on); and the finished product looked awesome.

Love this bench! I have it at the bottom of our king sixe bed and it looks great. This bench is substantial in size and quality. The packaging was impressive - the bench arrived in a box, tucked in a fabric sleeve, the legs were zipped in to a compartment on the underside of the bench. Each leg was individually wrapped in bubble wrap and boxed. This is a quality bench at a very good price, if you are in the market for a bench don't pass this one up!
This is the second ottoman that I have bought from Overstock.com and the values & quality just keep getting better! The worksmanship is really nice, delightful buttoned tufting (nice pleating,too! ) The legs are " icing on the cake", nicely turned & the cutest metal casters ,makes it so easy to move around! Shipping was fast on both items . You can't go wrong on this item! Thanks for the savings !!!
This item came beautifully packaged. Every detail was covered to be well protected in shipping. The item was easy to assemble and looks great. It has been wonderful to have and use in our Master Bedroom at the foot of the bed. It provides excellent form and function to our beautifully decorated room.
I wanted an long ottoman, not the standard size where only 2 people would be able to sit. This one is the perfect length. It will definitely sit 3; maybe 4 people. It's going in my living room across from my Van Thiel sofa. Now if I could only find those darn pillows that are shown in the pic. They would actually fit my decor really nicely. So Peter Brady... I mean Christopher Knight, you get 5 stars for this one. Oh yea, by the way... I used to have a crush on Peter Brady back in the day. LOL
This bench adds a touch of class to one's home decor. I assembled it myself, really quickly. Three years later it looks equally good and I have gotten many, many compliments on it over the years. If you do not have $*** dollars to spend on a really high quality similar product, go with this one. It looks good and it lasts.
