The bench itself was pretty easy to assemble although I did goof so no holes for the shelf pins in the center section. I realized that after it was too late. I not real happy with the cream finish, it's just OK and a little streaky looking. I am not sure if it comes in black; I would have been happier with that. The single cushion was 1" hard foam, plain, tweedy fabric and not comfortable. I bought some striped fabric and 2" foam and made 2 cushions. I can remove one if someone wants to sit and put a drink on the other side. The cushions are comfortable and the color pops.
