My husband and I were looking for a pair of chairs for our tiny living room and the two benches we bought are just perfect for our space that can't accommodate full size armchairs. For a put-it-together piece, this seems really sturdy and long lasting, even the hinges. Super easy to assemble, too! It definitely feels like a bench seat... a cushy bench seat, but a bench nonetheless. It is compact yet roomy for the sitter and at a good height. The storage is a wonderful bonus for toys, throw blankets or shoes. And the faux leather looks more expensive than it is.
