Anyone who knows anything about wood and wood finishes ismaware that there are various shades of a particular finish e.g. light cherry, dark cherry. Also, regardless of the finish, not all wood will take the stain/color the same even if it's the same wood. Therefore, not all benches will be the exact same color. I worried about my finish looking orangey, as someone stated, however, it did not. It was lighter than "my" cherry furniture, but fits in perfectly. The bench in PERFECT for the little area next to my fireplace that I was trying to fill. This is the 3rd bench I've tried and the least expensive. Once put together, and it was a cinch, one would never know it had to be, it is a solid, sturdy, functional piece of furniture. The price is unbelievably inexpensive for this product, but, I've seen this bench priced much higher elsewhere. I've had this for only a week and the wood shows no signs of cracking splintering etc ...but it's young. At this moment I feel as though I received a beautiful product at a great price ...and I'm very picky.
This bench is a great deal. It arrived packaged extremely well. Instructions were clear and simple to follow for assembly. Assembly was minor and only took about 10 min. The wood is very nice a heavy, finished beautifully. Nail head detail is classic in style. The fabric is an interesting animal print. It doesn't look "real" but still attractive.
Great small scale stool or ottoman, which I keep by my coffee table and then pull up to my big comfy chair for my feet. The upholstery is nice for the price, and not too wild for a traditional interior. I do wish the base came in different finishes, but this blends in well. Easy to assemble - just looks a little intimidating at first. Highly recommend.
Originally wanted an ottoman for the living room but realized that two of these placed close together would make a nice statement, certainly be more functional, serve many more purposes, and look stunning with a silver & mirrored tray on one. The base is well done and the fabric is soft but closely woven so it should provide excellent wear. Very nice.
Item was securely packaged with all parts professional wrapped. Assembled in less than 10 minutes using only the tool included. Fabric is very rich looking and neutral in color. Heavy piece that looks and feels like a quality piece of furniture. Should last for generations. So happy with purchase, I ordered another one. (We are using these in a walk in master bedroom closet to sit on while putting on shoes and socks.)
I just received my bench. It was packaged very well. My husband asked me if I wanted him to put it together. I said I could do it myself. It was very easy. The piece is very, very nice. Beautiful cherry stain. I am happy! Will use in my foyer when taking shoes on and off.
I had looked unsuccessfully to find a green ottoman for an upholstered chair. I even bought two from Overstock and returned them. So I decided to go this route: a good looking stool. I read the reviews ... all were great. It came today. As we started putting it together, one of the legs broke. Rather than send it back (I may regret that), we just got out the wood glue and fixed it. It is gorgeous. It is expensive looking. It is perfect. Now I just hope the leg holds.
