This has worked so well in a challenging open room with multiple, separate seating areas that we've purchased another for the foot of our bed. It has a quality appearance and is comfortable for sitting. We use it as extra seating below large, low windows to an outdoor view that we don't want to block. It's perfect -- unobtrusive, complimentary, and functional.
I really wanted to like this bench. It arrived quickly and in good shape, however, the bench height is 17 in rather than 18 in as in description. I bought the bench mainly for the kids, so this reduced height will make it harder for the kids to reach the food on the table. The cushion is also uneven and feels lacking. I'm 180 lbs and when I sit down my butt touches the wood board beneith. Perhaps I had too high an expectation due to the fantastic rating of this product.
After dropping around $***** on 3 these benches I expected the legs to sit flush on the floor. All three of the benches wobble horribly (the legs do not touch the ground evenly). They were packaged securely and do not appear to have been damaged during shipping. The workmanship is substandard. I will not be doing business with Overstock.com in the future.
I have read through many reviews of many similar products online and finally decided to get this. It's made of very high quality wood, leather (many commented that it's not genuine leather, but I didn't notice any difference between its leather and other leather chairs I have), and craftsmanship. It's a very nice looking bench, classy and elegant. Color is deep and sophisticated, fits very well with other pieces in my bedroom. The only complaint I have is the packaging is actually not good, or not very "smart". As many others said before, the bottom part of the bench is well packaged, that means the legs are well protected. But the top part (the leather surface) is not protected at all, just a thin piece of plastic wrap? It could get damaged very easily. And I do think the surface is far more important than the bench legs. The fortunate thing is the refund process with Overstock is very smooth. Thank you!
These are great. Easily my favorite thing I've bought off of this website. I got two of them for my dining room table and they have a nice, sleek look. They come in one piece and are sturdy, moderately comfortable and handsome. Can't say how well they'll hold up over time, but they seem pretty durable.
When we open the bench, we like it for its quality and simple elegance. The only shortage is that it is made to two people. Both My husband and I sit on the bench at the same time and fell shaky. But we bought it not only for sitting, but also for putting comfort or other clothes on. Anyway we like it.
