When I received this I was surprised how easily it was to put together and how they stored the legs within the cushion underneath the zipper. The only drawbacks I see later is that the fabric underneath looks like It will eventually tear off thru aging but tacking it isn't a problem. Staple gun will do the trick. So far other than that its a very nicely made product and comfortable.
I love this bench! I bought it to to put under a large window in my family room, it also sits between 2 chairs where It serves as more sitting space as well as an ottoman. The bench is well made and sturdy, the leather is good quality. I would definitely recommend this for your home !
This bench is beautiful, especially the leather and the stretchers, but the bench is very wide. It limits the places it can be used. I purchased it to use at the end of my bed but it was too wide for that, so I found a place for it elsewhere.
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.
