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!
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.
This bench is fantastic! I needed something for the end of my bed 1. to serve as a "catch all", and 2. to aid my 15lb. dachshund getting on and off my bed. I compared other tufted black benches throughout the website, and decided to go with this one. The bench shipped fully assembled, the weight of the bench is sturdy and the chrome looks really nice. The "leather" hasn't shown any wear this far. I would recommend this bench to anyone looking to add a chic modern piece without breaking the bank.
real one looks better than the image. the leather touch so good. Very enjoy to sit on it, not to soft, and not hard. totally fit for 2 people, and still have enough space. The steel connect not really well, but doesn't affect anything tho.
