I bought this as a replacement for a bench I had in our family room. This one is a little smaller than I was hoping fore, however, it is perfect at the foot of the bed. My family is always in my room watching tv with me and when the lights go out...the dog sprawls out across it. Its fantastic.
This bench took some time to assemble, but it was a reasonable task and resulted in a nice, sturdy item with a nice design. I didn't give it 5 stars, because the upholstery is very cheap-looking. The fabric is secured with nail heads, and there were a few extras in the box. It will be easy to recover the bench with nicer fabric at a later time, but I'm not sure the nail heads can be reused after I pull them off and replace them. Will probably have to find others to use. Anyway, it's a decent quality piece and I'm using it in entry hall.
Oh how I loved this bench. I loved it so much I tried to buy another one but it's out of stock :( Let me tell you for the price, the quality is great. I've been looking for benches and this one is the best value so far. The color is more on the brown side than the picture looks. But it still is neutral that is fits with most decors. The seat is foam, but firm enough to sit on. I don't know how it would perform if you sat on it all day. For my purposes I used it in my walk in closet to sit on when putting on pants or stockings. It's so pretty that I also put it at the foot of a guest bed, only when guests are over. After they leave I put it back in my closet. I will keep coming back to see if it's on sale again.
I originally bought this bench to use in my entryway to sit upon while taking off shoes, but it sat so low I was afraid that someone would trip over it; so I ended up putting it in front of the sofa as a foot stool and it's perfect!! It is extremely sturdy, the design attractive, and the fabric is not as unattractive an the foto indicates. I bought a little tray place on top to hold my coffee or book, and it's perfect. The padding is substantial enough that the tray doesn't tip with my feet/legs on the bench. One of my more satisfying finds!
This is a great product! It was very easy to put together and is beautifully made. I wish the bench was a little bit taller, but other than that nothing else I would change. I must say that the pricture really doesn't show how beaitful the bench is. I am very happy I made this purchase and would absolutely reccomend it. I would also say that the picture also makes the fabric look a bit different that it does in real life, but I actually like it better in person!.
This bench is more than I expected. Arrived very well maintained. Weight is greater than I expected. Well constructed. Color great. I normally buy name brands like Henredon, Thomasville, etc., so this is an excellent buy for the money, plus.
I love my bench, I looked at it for over 5 months trying to decide if I wanted to take a chance after reading a couple of the reviews, I am so glad I did, there are two minor flaws with it but knowing that nothing is perfect I decided to keep it. I have not regretted my purchase one bit. I do plan to recover it once I find just the "right" fabric to go with my sofa.
The styling can't save the poor quality of this bench. The wood finish came chipped and the upholstery fabric is so thin it looks cheap. The foam padding isn't very rebounding so we get little circles all along it from paw prints that stay there until you smooth them out. But the style is quite nice and it's hard to find a bench with nice curves. I will keep and I might reupholster the top.
The size of this bench was perfect for my smaller entryway. I love the curved legs and nail head detail. It really is beautiful. My only complaint is that the fabric doesn't appear to be tight enough, because it dimples just a bit when someone sits on it. All I have to do is smooth it gently with my hand and it goes back to normal. My entry way isn't used every day, just a few times a week, so I'm not worried. If you were going to use it every day, multiple times a day, the fabric might not be right for that.
The bench is a beautiful dark cherry wood base with a middle brown cushioned top. It is a great bench for putting on shoes and comfortable to sit on. The only problem was the lack of instructions on assembly.

i am so happy that i purchased this item, it goes perfect with my livingroom set, too bad it is not a cocktail table, i have it in front of my sofa until the purchase of my cocktail table arrives, people that have visited my home think that it is a table as oppose to a bench. i was very surprise that i could put this together by myself. i would order this item again if i can find room for it. i love my bench and it is so comfortable when you sit on it.

This bench was easy to assemble. I purchased it to put under a large picture in our master bedroom. It adds a nice modern vibe. Honestly it doesn't get sat on too frequently so I don't know how it'll wear over time but I love how it looks!
Absolutely love the bench, has a great fun timeless style, made with real wood!! Have had many compliments on it. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

I love the look and the size of this bench, the deep rich wood color is great with the rest of my furniture. The fabric is acceptable but a little lesser quality than I had hoped, it was not stretched evenly but after sitting a couple weeks the wrinkles are smoothing out, the nail stud edging really gives the bench some style. The assembly was easy though the pictorial directions were confusing, throw them away!!! For the price this is a bargain compared to other store benches I looked at that were 2 or more times the cost.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the wood is very nice, a deep rich color, the top is a little lighter than expected.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was very well described.
Easy to assemble. The wood is real. We put it together within 30 minutes. The cherry wood is a nice rich dark color, the rivets are individaully set, so if one comes out, not all will follow. They even send 2 extra for that reason. It looks fabulous with our gold/brown and black bedroom. We are using it for a bench at the bottom of the bed. I am going to order a second one, and recover with customized material for my daughters room. By the way, the covering is just lovely, it has a nice warm brown, black sheen to it. Very pleased with this purchase!

I bought this bench because I loved the shape and planned on recovering the seat with custom fabric. I placed it at the foot of my bed and after a while almost considered keeping the brown fabric as it was a better quality than I expected. In the end, I did recover it and it works perfectly. Recovering was easy and I was able to reuse the nailhead trim (individual nails, not strip pieces).
