Visually, it's a great looking bench. I was very plesantly surprised. Structurally, however, it does not feel rock-solid as I hoped. Assembly of the cross braces was a pain and ultimately, I don't think these pieces contribute to the piece's stability. It is a relatively inexpensive bench, so I am not unhappy with it. However, I think it needs a little tweaking to make the bench feel more soild.

We ordered this bench to allow for additional seating around our kitchen island. This bench easily accommodates three adults or four children. The directions included in the box for assembly were awful as none of the legs or supports were labeled as indicated in the instructions, however, it was extremely easy to assemble so it wasn't a big deal. The overall quality of the bench is good. I think the supports between the legs, especially the longer supports could be sturdier. I am very careful to not put any weight on the longer supports and tell our kids to do the same. The legs are sturdy and the top is very comfortable for sitting. We had been searching for a bench for over six-months, this one is exactly what we needed! We receive compliments on the bench from everyone who comes over and I would definitely recommend this to product to anyone.
This bench appears as shown but the hardware included to attach the bracing pieces was not nearly long enough to attach to the legs. The holes were drilled at the wrong angles and only after using my own hardware and drill was I able to assemble the piece. Despite my efforts the bench is still shakey, what is supossed to serve as the cross braces are inadequate. The bench looks great but my husband can't use it without fear of collapse.

Love this bench! I bought this to go with 4 Tribecca Dartford counter stools. The bench is casual and provides a fun place for the kids to sit and put these toys that I don't like on the kitchen table. I like the look and I purchased this 2 years ago and it still looks brand new. Easy to clean and I haven't had any issues with wobbling after 2 years. The faux leather is easy to clean and great if you have kids.
I looked everywhere for a high bench until I found this one. I have it for almost three years, its move around everywhere, it seats comfortable 2 people but most of the time we seat 3! The materials are very good and the leather is really nice.
We bought this bench to replace ours, which had shattered underneath when a leg caught on carpet at just the right angle! The image of the bench on OS looked identical, so I ordered. The box was in bad shape on arrival from UPS, with holes through it. However, I opened it to find the exact match of wood design we were trying to replace. The bench "seat" was black instead of brown, but that was solved by using the old bench seat. I added some longer screws and wood glue, to make it a much more sturdy piece of furniture. Very happy with the whole process. Thank You Overstock.
Love this new addition to our kitchen! Looks better than having a bunch of stools all around. Was very pleased with the comfort, height and overall look of the bench!

My bar has 3 sides I purchased 4 counter top stools and 1 bench. The bench will give 3 to 4 children a place to sit. The bench also has no back on it so it will not block the view out the window. I also believe I have more room at the end of the counter because it has no back. I love it.
