Design and scale are great, though the cushion seams are to the front and back, not to the sides, where they¿d be much less noticeable. Workmanship is terrible. It has dents, metal buckling, and rust marks and arrived with the sort of scuffing that makes me think it was already used. Chrome is incredibly cheap and looks single plate, if even that. It will be in a heavy traffic area and is likely to get a lot of wear and tear, so I¿m not too upset, but there¿s no way it¿s worth more than what Overstock is charging.
Just received this bench today. The upholstery (stitching, leather, etc.) is really well done. The chrome, however, could use a lot of improvement. The welded areas have not been grinded down and polished and there are many areas on the chrome that have not been polished properly, leaving flat, unshiny areas that kind of look like fingerprints or smudges. It very much takes away from the simple, clean look of the piece. Since this is going in a dimly lit entryway, I'll keep it, but I'm pretty disappointed in the workmanship of the metal. I think, for the price, it's a so-so deal.
Absolutely gorgeous and great value. Leather is in perfect condition. Only flaw is a minor division between the seams of the metal base. Guests won't notice it...not enough to warrant a return, but just enough to keep workmanship at 4 stars instead of 5. Looks great in the room; it's not tiny...beautiful size.
I was a little a little concerned ordering furniture online but after reading the reviews I decided to purchase the bench. The bench arrived today and I am so impressed. The photo of the bench doesn't do the bench justice. This is not a flimsy bench at all. We are very pleased.
This leather and chrome bench is one of the highest quality products I have ever purchased online. It came fully assembled and well protected. Delivery was within the promised time limit, and you simply can not beat the price for this kind of quality. What more could anyone ask for? Nothing!
It has poor durability but is 1/10th the cost of a decent quality bench. Looks great. And is light and easy to move around. Will look good with frequent use for about 1 year, at which point it will start to show its shoddy construction. At this stage I have 3 of them for 3 years and they look terrible, but still sorta work except they aren't comfortable at all. They were minimally comfy at first, and now they kind of sag in the middle.
On this FAB-U-LOUS bench! This bench is for anyone living in a contemporary and masculine space. What does that mean? It means that if your curtains have ruffles or you have a curio cabinet displaying vintage dolls, don't even think about getting this bench. Also, don't even think about placing a crocheted anything anywhere within 50 yards of it. This bench only gets along with woven cashmere throws. What I'm trying to say here is that buying this bench comes with a lot of responsibility, and I'm not convinced you have it. I'm on a mission to save good furniture from bad environments. Please join me in this worthwhile cause.
I wanted additional seating to match my contemporary chrome and black dining set. I chose this bench because it's chair height. It works perfectly for dining and the bar across the bottom doesn't interfere with leg room. The quality is excellent and I'm especially impressed with the precision stitching and tufting on the seat.
