The measurements are a bit misleading. The bench seat itself is only 17" deep when assembled, and 42" long. The curved arms extend the overall length to 52". Assembled, it is a small piece. Sturdy and looks good. I am not thrilled about the cheap black plastic caps for the screw holes. They go underneath the bench, and aren't very visible from the top because the black blends in, but they're chintzy. On mine a couple of the holes were drilled too large for the caps to fit, and now the screws can be seen from above. The instructions are not much help. Things might have gone faster if I hadn't tried to follow them; sit down on your own and think logically about what steps to follow and in what order, or the dowel assembly won't work out and you'll find yourself removing bolts a few times. Attractive, nice size for smaller living spaces, but I would not buy it again at this price.
I was disapointed in the quality and appearance of this setee. The screw holes did not align properly so the back of the seat doesn't fit flush with the sides. At this price better quality and craftsmanship is expected.

I am very happy with this purchase. The bench is heavy and solid for the price. My husband put it together in about 30 minutes with no issues regarding parts or defects in workmanship although he did say the directions were not great.
I agree with my fellow shoppers. This is a fabulous settee! I am very impressed with the quality, however just like som others, one piece was damaged when it arrived. A small piece of wood broke off one of the arms during shipping ... in the front of course. Overstock customer service was so fantastic - they sent a replacement piece right away. It was very easy to put together, as all pieces fit nicely, and all hardware was provided. There are only 4 pieces to assemble, so it was a piece of cake. It looks beautiful in my master bedroom sitting area. The finish and quality are superb!

This settee is a nice, heavy piece of furniture. It came in 4 pieces and was very easy to put together. We had some damage to one side piece. I emailed Overstock when we saw the damage, and they had a new part shipped out immediately. I had looked at several settees on line and in stores and didn't find anything that came closer to my vision of what I wanted. I was not disappointed. My friends are very impressed with the quality and the price I paid. I love my new settee and I love Overstock!
