This 'bench' was higher quality than I expected for the money. I anticipated a lot less weight in the iron, with woven leather stretched tightly over a frame. Instead, the heavy wrought iron frame supports a cushioned pad. Alas, it is white and shows through the woven leather a bit until it is treated to some oil.. It is generously sized so quite a large person could sit on it, but a little large for the vanity I anticipated. That will teach me to pay attention to measurements!
