I always like to clarify a bit what exactly this bench looks like, for those that can not tell from the picture. First, the bench is a very white color (not off-white), with a slightly shiny finish and it is tufted, meaning that there is stitching on the top and sides. That is difficult to tell in the picture. The tufting is into 8 squares on top and the sides. It is very nice looking and though it is "leatherette", the look is elegant enough to where no one will think you got a cheap piece of furniture. The legs are a dark black wood and attach very easily. Delivery is through UPS Ground, not UPS freight, which I absolutely abhor, as their residential delivery in my area is horrendous. However, the piece is well packaged and assembly is a breeze, literally just plug int he wood dowel connectors and screw in the legs (the rest of the trunk comes assembled). It offers tons of storage and makes a nice bench for the living room if you require additional seating.
