Just got this bench and I put it together in about an hour (distracted by my TV shows:) but it's actually very easy although the allen key is bit of a pain. The holes lined up nicely but two of the screws would not really take, not necessary because the rest the the screws and washers went in and the bench is very sturdy. I love the modern look, yet still a bit traditional with the tufting. The bonded leather is a beautiful saddle brown, as the description says. It does not look cheap at all but it has a slight odor that should dissipate within a few days. the metal legs are a dark grayish but looks a bit brown as well, I guess due to lighting in the room. this works perfectly for me since I'm using this with a large farm table and brown metal chairs I purchased on this site as well. The bench will sit two adults comfortably and three children, I love the size! The cushion seems too firm right now but i'm sure it'll soften up with everyday use. I'm glad I purchased this, the price was great , the quality is great and I highly recommend.

This is a beautiful piece. Color of the brown on my screen was true to the color of the bench. I would have like a more subltle Tan, it's a more warm golden brown tone. It's heavy and well made. For bonded leather its a good look. It a little shiny but not cheap looking. I would recommend this product!
The bench looks good at the foot of my bed. I have Maple wood furniture and the bench works well.

The bench is working out well in my foyer. There are six screws attaching the bench to its base, and only 5 would good in; the other one wouldn't line up. It seems sturdy with just the five. I feel like it was a bargain!

The color is exactly as pictured. The leather is a great quality. We use it as a coffee table. We have to use a tray on it to hold drinks, etc. It's easy to move across the rug for vacuuming. I wish that it came without the dimples, though. Then, I'd rate it a 5.
My husband and I are very happy with this modern leather bench. We use it in our mud room for taking off/putting on our shoes. We also store our shoes underneath. Color and quality are excellent, the leather is durable and I don't foresee it ripping easily, which is a plus. Also easy to assemble. I'm only giving it four stars instead of five because the frame of the bench has screws sticking out from the bottom and did not come with any kind of caps to protect the floor from scratches. We had to buy felt pads to stick under the corners of the frame and we use a rug as well. Overall, however, very pleased with this stylish leather bench.
This bench was exactly what we needed and works very well with our furniture. We actually use it as an ottoman/coffee table with a tray and love the look of it. I'd say the quality is better than what you pay for, so that is a win. Is it the best quality leather? No, but if you want that, you'll have to pay for it. The leather almost doesn't look like leather due to the patina and its thickness (or thinness) but it's acceptable at this price point and will be fine for most people who are obviously here bc of budgetary purposes. Durability: Haven't had it for too long but I think it will last for at least a few years and that will be plenty of time for me to think it was worth the price. We aren't rough on our furniture though, so hopefully it will last much longer.
