This bench looks very posh, is well-made and is incredibly versatile. I've moved it around my apartment, using it as a coffee table/foot stool in front of a loveseat, a bench at the end of my bed, and seating at a long desk. I definitely recommend it but folks should know it is not leather as most people understand leather to be (full-grain) and it certainly doesn't smell like leather as one review stated. Rather it is bi-cast "leather" which consists of a split leather backing coated with a layer of polyurethane and then embossed to look like leather. The surface therefore has an artificially consistent texture, unlike leather which normally has marks and scars. The product description is a little misleading as it says it is a "quality brown leather" but then goes on to describe bi-cast leather: "cow leather with polyurethane coating." But having said this, bi-cast leather is actually easier to clean and you don't have to worry about protecting it as much as you would leather so there are benefits. And of course bi-cast is much more affordable so you can't beat the price. I give this bench 5 stars as a quality piece of furniture.
Without doubt, the stools are beautiful and look very nice in our kitchen. The counter height of 26" was exactly what we needed. The color and style match our house decor nicely and it was easy to assemble. I was seeking stools which had a genuine leather component and noticed that it was listed on Overstock with leather as the padding, when I received the stools, it clearly marked on the bottom of the chair that it was bonded or bi-cast. I can have the pads reupholstered in the future if necessary. One chair pad was torn by a misplaced staple on the bottom of the pad poking out through the side, otherwise the material looks as if it will hold up for quite some time. Overstock will be shipping out a replacement pad.
These counter stools are classy and comfortable. The leather is beautiful and the contrasting orange stitching is a nice touch. They look much more expensive than they are, which is refreshing because there's no reason why one counter stool should cost *** . The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is they seem a little shorter than most counter stools and were somewhat difficult to put together. So if you are tall and handy, no problem!
Honestly, this sofa is just okay. It was very easy to assemble. The back cushions are very comfortable, but the sofa is not very deep. The color was WAY oranger than I was expecting, and the dye blotchier than it looks in this photo. I wish I had gone through the product description with a fine-toothed comb because I think the title is VERY misleading (as was Overstock's response in the questions section). The sofa is not all leather. Only certain parts of it are.
