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!

This bench is the perfect modern addition to our living room. We use it as a coffee table/ottoman and it's the perfect width in front of our sectional sofa. Only thing I'd change is the legs look matte black in the photo but are actually painted gray.
I was looking at some vintage benches in a style similar to this but was not willing to pay the price. The legs on this are different, but otherwise it fit the bill. The "leather" is not very convincing, but I'd been looking at vinyl anyway. Sits next to a door at the bottom of the stairs, just for putting on shoes, etc. Don't know if it would hold up to more than that. So easy to put together - do pay attention to the directions and don't tighten anything fully until all parts are assembled, and then likely the holes will all match up fine, mine did.
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.
