We ordered this bench as extra seating and a versatile substitute for a guest luggage rack. It's very sturdy for extra seating (though probably not comfy enough for long periods) & it's larger and more solid than a luggage rack so it easily hit the mark. The bench is heavy and the dye job a little unrefined in that when the straps of leather move around, you can see small strips of un-dyed material. Additionally, it does have a scent (to me, not unpleasant or pleasant, but I'm often aware of it when I walk into the room where the bench is). I think some reviewers say the scent subsides, but our hasn't yet after 2 or 3 weeks. Our home is more contemporary so the rustic nature of the materials don't really mesh perfectly, however, it folds down so that it can slide under a bed when not in use.
