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.
this bench is so great I have 2, and I want a third. I've used them as a bench to my dining room table, in the entryway, in my office and it also fits perfectly at the foot of a queen bed. very versatile! the leather is a nice "ball glove" color- sort of light cognac. though the metal is nothing special, its simple and easy to assemble.
I was concerned that it would not be sturdy, but its the Rock of Gibraltar. Easy to assemble, no need to look at the directions its pretty obvious and all of the tools are provided to assemble it. Go on, you know you like it, so get it.
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!
I read the reviews on this bench prior to ordering. THANK YOU for giving me the heads-up the holes didn't line up correctly during assembly. I purchased this bench with that tip in mind - so I wasn't frustrated or surprised when most of the holes didn't align when attaching the bench to the frame. It is very sturdy even without the majority of screws not used. Very comfy. My son was impressed.
This was difficult to assemble. The holes in the bench did not line up with the holes in the base. They weren't even close. No matter how I tried, I couldn't get them to work, so I finally ended up drilling my own holes. Also, the "leather" doesn't really look or feel like leather. Nonetheless, I do think it's a stylish bench, and it serves its purpose.
This bench came really fast - just a couple of days from when I ordered it. The bench is easy to assemble - I did it myself in about 1/2 an hour. Like others mentioned one of the screw holes was not aligned correctly so I could not put that screw into the seat, but since there were so many other places that were attached I don't think it mattered. The bench looks just like the photo and I would definitely recommend it!
This bench looks exactly as pictured, is sturdy and stylish. Perfect for entry and extra seating. Putting it together was simple although the screws don't line up exactly. It still goes together well enough to work out - especially for the price. The leather makes it so nice.
