This gorgeous leather bench came to me in one big box and when I saw how big it was, I thought that it was definitely gonna be a challenge to put it all together. However, you literally took the bench seat out and four leg posts and just screw the legs in and you're done! The leather looks fantastic and none of the buttons were broken, loose or missing. Overall a great piece and I'd definitely recommend it to others.
I have been looking for a entry way bench for a long time and this purchase put and end to my search. I was little skeptical about the quality as I never made an online purchase on Furniture but I was happily surprised. The shipment arrived in 4 days and packed right. Just had to assemble the legs which was a piece of cake. Great quality for the Price! Thanks Overstock :)
While this bench is undeniably beautiful, the springs in it squeak like mad when you sit on it. Every inch is squeaky, and continues squeaking while you're sitting on it.... tying shoes, etc. It makes it feel "cheap" despite the high-class look. I placed this thing by my front door, and now every guest I have sits on it and remarks at how squeaky it is. It's so bad, I'm considering returning it - even as cheap as it was.
This bench looks great, but it is not well made. It was in our formal living room for a few months but never used. I go to sit on it and one leg falls off. My husband tries to put it back together but the screw holes are too big. I called overstock for replacement parts but they said they cant help me and that i am stuck with it.
This bench looks beautiful in my master bathroom. I chose it to place on top of an oriental rug hoping you would be able to see the rug's pattern underneath. It show just like I hoped. Assembly was simple--about 5 minutes. I like it so much I may order another one for the foot of the bed in the guest bedroom. At about half the cost of a nearly identical item in a local furniture store, it's a great bargain.
I ordered this bench to go in my dining room against a long open wall and this fit the bill just right. I originally was considering one of the longer benches (with 6 legs) but they were almost too long and I liked the style and the wood stain on this one much better. This is a very rich and distinctive looking piece of furniture that would go about anywhere. I think it looks best in a formal or semi-formal setting (against a mud room so to speak) because there is no nail head trim and the leather and legs are a deeper tone than most. The seat sits very firm (which tells me it's made to last) and the legs are a unique flair. NOTE - this bench was a little wider than I thought (which was still fine in my application) so if you are pressed for size width-wise, make sure you measure carefully. It would also go well as a coffee table too. This bench is packaged great with foam and inserts to protect it, and Overstock made sure I had it in about 3 days! All in all I am please with it - my use is more for looks than actual function but I think either is great.
This bench came exactly as described. Looks great in my living room. One leg was damaged and quickly replaced.

I love this bench! It is very comfortable and the fake leather looks real to me. It is definitely a firm bench, so I wouldn't expect to sink into it or anything. The legs are so easy to install--just screw them into place and you are ready to enjoy the bench! Some people have reviewed this bench saying it shook, like something was inside it. I found these reviews worrisome when I ordered, but mine came without any sounds. The little silicone packages had broken open in freight, though, so the package did rattle when I was bringing it inside--yikes! But it all turned out all right, and the bench arrived in perfect condition. I have had the bench for several weeks now, and just yesterday, when I was dusting it off with a soft cloth, I accidentally ran my fingernail across it and I left a scratch. This is my own fault, but just know the surface does scratch fairly easily. The wood frame is very, very high quality and overall I think the bench looks much more expensive than what I paid for it. Everyone who comes into the house comments on it--I have it in my foyer.
