Bench is perfect! Took about 30 minutes to assemble due to the number of screws & washers...simple. Bonded leather is very rich looking and has a nice finish which has a shine to it. Easy to wipe off if necessary. Love it and would highly recommend it. Don't be afraid of this solid, attractive bench. Metal is a nice oil rubbed bronze color. Thumbs up!

I received this bench yesterday. The color is NOT EVEN CLOSE to cream. It is very much a rich tan color, to the point of being almost brown. Very disappointing. Otherwise, it looks nice, the leather material does not look cheap at all and seems like it will be easy to clean, and it seems very sturdy. The included paperwork from the manufacturer states that the weight limit for the bench is 450 lbs, so it should easily support two average-sized adults.
I was worried that the creamy leather would not be creamy but greenish, but I was wrong. Also the leather doesnt look cheap, which was very important to me. I have this bench in my walk in closet on a large sheepskin rug. It looks very stylish and modern. It was very easy to put together, everything fit like a glove. I put in the bolts and only tightened them fully after putting all the bolts into place. I am very happy with this bench.......the price is great!!!

I have been looking for a bench for the end of my king sized bed since, no lie, 2004. All the good quality benches run in the **** range which I was unwilling to pay. Additionally, my bedroom is sort of distressed cream colored french style. This is not my true style (inherited most of the furniture from my Mor Mor) as I prefer modern. What I like about this bench is; a) the style works with traditional, but I think it will eventually work with more modern furniture when I transform the room some day, b) the bench is nice and sturdy, and the "bonded" leather is just fine. Comfortable to sit on for putting on shoes, piling decorative pillows & bedspread at bedtime, etc., which is what I needed it for, c) I put this together by myself in about 15 minutes. Easy! Overall a great buy and well worth the **** bucks! The reviews really helped. Am currently considering another furniture purchase from Overstock.com but it doesn't have any reviews yet... hmmm
I use this bench at my entryway for a mudroom area. The leather is shiny (it's bonded leather) & a little more on the butter spectrum in color than a cream but is not mistaken for yellow (if that makes sense). The button tufts are very deep, so much so that I had to vacuum out the tufts when my son dropped a bit of crackers on the bench but the deep tufting looks nice. It is firm but comfortable and sometimes I just find myself sitting on the bench for a short break here and there, Very pleased.
I would not hesitate to purchase anything from overstock Everything I have ever ordered was always Received how it was described and pictured.

I wanted to like this and make it work. If the color was less of a yellow-tan-cream I would have kept it. We have an ivory bedspread so I had high hopes it would blend. It is darker than most pics. I will say the leather did feel quite nice (although a little more sheen than I would have liked). Overstock got it to me in record time and I thank them for that!
This bench has been a great purchase! I've used it at the end of my bed, under the window, in a hallway and as extra seating at the dining room table. It's so versatile! Still looks brand new! If I had anywhere else to put another one, I'd get one in a heartbeat!
We purchased two of these and put them together to form one big ottoman. They work great if you want to put your feet up. If you sit on them, they bend a bit in the middle. Some skews have come undone. Max weight is 200 lbs. Wouldn't recommend for daily sitting use because they are not made very well.
This ottoman has a lot going for it. It's very sturdy, high quality, and the leather is nice. It was relatively quick and easy to put together (30 minutes). The only negative for me is the color. I bought this hoping it'd fall more into the creamy white color family than yellow. It is NOT white. It's almost more of a dirty cream/really light yellow. Or a dark cream. Some of the photos on the website looked like this, others looked more white. I was hoping for the later, and was pretty disappointed. We kept it, as it works in the space and seems durable. But the color was a bummer.
This bench is being used as a cocktail table and bench. It's perfect for what I wanted. I'm also grateful for the reviews that said that it wasn't really cream, but more towards a tan. The bench went together easily (about 1/2 hour with DH helping, but I could have done it myself in a little more time. All the washers, bolts, etc were enclosed and all holes were properly drilled and aligned. Great product!
I love this bench! I had been looking for a modern entryway bench for 6 months, and finally decided on this one. It is very sturdy. I would say that if you are wanting it to be an exact cream match, this is more on the tan side of the cream spectrum.
