I was very pleased with this piece of quality furniture. I needed something in my bedroom next to my bed and sit on when needed. This is extremely sturdy and well made. The leather is nice and shows attention to detail. Definitely NOT shoddy workmanship that is easily found on other benches. You get what you pay for. It's just perfect. Well worth the price to me. I know I would spend much more in a high end furniture store. This was my first purchases with overstock...and I am coming back for more.
