I purchased this little bench to use at a vanity table. It was relatively easy to assemble, though be careful when unpacking it, because there are some small loose pieces that might easily be lost or thrown away if you're not careful. The padding of the bench is just okay, not great. In fact, the same goes for the quality of the bench in general. It is fine for a guest room but I doubt it would stand up well to heavy daily use (I expect you'd get a "dent" where you sit pretty quickly because the quality of the seat isn't great). All in all, it's a nice looking bench, so long as you don't examine it too closely.
The item looks nice and even though comes unassembled, it looks higher quality. The only issue and teh reason I am giving 4 strat is that the photo was misleading - I saw a grey, beige and brown seat in the photos and when I went to select from the dropdown menu it only gave me teh option of selecting beigh or dark grey - so I selecetd dark grey assuming that was the only gray posted in the pics. When it was delivered I realized it was a much darker grey than what was listed in the photos (light grey linen color). I guess what I though was brown was actually the dark grey color. The photos and dropdown selections are misleading. I wanted the light grey and now Im stuck with teh dark grey that doesn't match teh room I bought it for. But, it is a nice looking bench.
This bench was very easy to put together. The padding is not as comfortable as I would like it to be but it will do so long as you aren't sitting on it for more than a 15-20 mins a day. (currently using it as a seat for my vanity). I'll update on the durability once I've had it more than 3-4 months.
I purchased this bench for one of my dogs so that he can sit in his favorite window. It looks really expensive! It was easy to put together and is decently sturdy. I gave it four stars instead of five because the material covering the bench seems sort of thin for upholstery fabric and the foam in the seat feels like it won't last a super long time. But, it's perfect for my use.
