Upholstery color: Dark brown
Dimensions: 46 inches wide x 18 inches deep x 21.5 inches high
Package arrived on time and intact. Directions for assembly are sketchy, but there are only six pieces including the cushion, so it's not rocket science. Eight hex head bolts and seventeen screws later, eleven to secure the cushion, done. It took about ten minutes. Bench looks great,doesn't smell, and is wide enough for four pairs of shoes on the shelf. Great product at a great price.
Live in a post and bean so I need things that don't have to much of a contemporary look, yet don't want to look like I think I'm Davy Crockett wife. This struck a perfect balance. The weight is great, the leather supple and nicely padded. If the new puppy hadn't eaten the wood all would be perfect.
This bench was fairly easy to assemble, but the instructions are goofy and hard to understand. You will need a phillips screw driver, hammer to pound the wood end pieces in, two people, and a very strong wrist. Preferably use an electric screw driver to save you a lot of time and wrist pain. Two people would help in holding up the two sides so they don't fall over while assembling the pieces. You can do it alone, but it's tricky. However, that being said...this bench is gorgeous. I just love it. The cushion is not soft though...this is not a comfortable lounging bench. We are using it for our entry way at our law firm and it's perfect for that (you don't want people sitting around too long anyway, right??) It would be perfect by a door to use for putting on your shoes or something like that too.

Great looking bench with the slatted panels. the cushion is thick and leather looks sleek. fast delivery and easy assembly. definitely recommend to my friends and family. didn't receive it with any odor. yay me.
After viewing the lovely photo and reading all the great reviews, I bought this bench with much anticipation. It was a profound disappointment: minimal guidance in the "Assembly Instructions;" cheap, easily stripped hardware (screws, bolts); pre-assembly screw holes that had been drilled improperly - most too deep, some in the wrong direction - leaving nothing for the screws to grab onto (meaning that the bench's bars never made full contact with the frame); careless, sloppy staining of the wood; no cross-bracing provided (important for a bench this long); etc, etc. I could go on and on - the cushion is of the cheapest leather (if indeed it is leather; doesn't leather usually have a scent?), and there is nothing in the bottom of the cushion for the screws to hold on to - just the foam core of the cushion!
After a few brief sittings it began to wobble (and it's in my bedroom, where I only use it to sit down while I tie my shoe laces), So, after a few weeks, I tightened the screws, but it still wobbles. Didn't want to tighten too much, for fear of stripping the screws/wood. So I'm going to add a few corner braces to the bottom frame/side junction, and hope for the best. But what a disappointment!.
When I first opened the box the smell of polyurethane was so strong I gagged and had to put it in another room behind closed doors. The smell didn't dissipate for two months. Then putting in the first screw the wood splintered in the pre-drilled hole for the bottom shelf. This wood isn't thick enough to support the screws.
Very poorly made.
