The Landa Bench, called a "gossip bench" turned out to be perfect for our foyer. My husband is ill and needed a place to change into his boots. All the pieces fit together perfectly..each was labeled and the plan was easy to follow. It took about 1 and 1/2 hours to assemble. The black finish looks very good for an inexpensive piece of furniture, and best of all it fits in my small place exactly. Delivery was very fast considering it was the holidays. We are very pleased. Thanks O.
