Good initial quality, no complaints so far. As other reviews suggest, this piece will fit in with other new and period mid-century modern furniture (think Mies Van Der Rohe designs). Mine fits in fine with original pieces and more expensive "design within reach" pieces fairly well. Right scale and proportions for this sort of bench. Materials and consturction suggest they will hold up to moderate to light use. Tailoring of leather is very nice. Inclusion of swatch of leather was an unexpected and useful touch. I'd buy more from this manufacture if only they would share who that is!
