Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by catbird22 very nice bench
I put this bench together in under 10 minutes. I read reviews about difficult assembly, and don't understand that - it was very easy for me. One of the legs screwed in a bit crooked; I could probably fix it but it doesn't bother me enough to mess with it. Wood legs are very nicely finished. Upholstery is nice. I got the textured velvet in aqua (sort of a brown/aqua/turquoise starburst design). Love the pattern, goes great in our small library in front of a huge bay window. The bench is not cushy... it's very firm padding - not a negative for me. As others have stated, the packaging is annoying - lots of stray, static-charged bits of styrofoam everywhere.

It looks for classy and well made. Two legs were damaged upon arrival but Home Decorators replaces asap with no questions.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 2334 Defect in workmanship
This is a beautiful bench and I really love it, and the assembly would have been a breeze except one piece on one leg was glued upside down and the bolt did not fit into the slot. I was not going to pack this up and ship it back, so I found a bolt that works for now, but it is too long and shows. I will have to search for one that fits and that is why I did not rate this very high. I would not recommend unless you are really handy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BaltimoreLady Looks fine, but sit lightly
The legs needed to be screwed on and two of them will not tighten. We will be very careful about who sits on it. It sinks in the middle a bit when my husband - 190 lbs - sits on it.
The color is not dark brown....more like a dark mushroom.
I'd send back but the box was thrown out and it looks fine enough to keep. Just disappointed on the stability. Or, as my husband said, it's just a cheap piece of furniture.

My order arrived quickly and on the day the tracking said it would be. Box was slightly beat up but everything inside was perfect. Assembly was not too difficult. One middle screw did not go in but works fine without it, still very sturdy. I ordered the brown and crushed velvet bench. The aqua color is vibrant. The seat is not real cushy but still comfy. I guess it could be used as a taller coffee table but mine is in my entry. I would highly recommend this bench and company. Good deal too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by elDesigual Great addition to my remodeled living room
I went from a low coffee table to this taller bench. I wanted something that was more useful and could double as seating, an ottoman, etc. This fit the bill perfectly. Also, my remodeled living room is dark cherry wood flooring and two different shades of taupe/brown. I needed color! The aqua color complimented the browns & dark tones perfectly. Paired with a rug that was also from Home Decorators (Spinner Area Rug in "Mushroom"), I couldn't be happier. You can't go wrong with this item if you want a versatile and fun addition to your living room, entry way, bedroom, etc. Assembly was easy, but did take some wrestling to get the legs to seat against the fabric correctly and for the holes to line up so that the bolts would thread properly. Just be patient and it'll go together with no real problem. Enjoy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relo Good value
The color was a deep eggplant color, perfect for my color scheme. It is a very hard bench and is microfiber, so it would serve well as a coffee table. I am using it as a place to sit and put on shoes and an accent in the upstairs hallway. It is a good size and very sturdy. The assembly is a bit challenging as the holes do not always line up perfectly, but with some perserverence you can get it to work. It took about 30 minutes to get it all together with "help" from the cats.

Just the right amount of color to brighten up the hallway. The contrast of the dark brown background makes a dramatic statement. The velvet of the flowers adds the right amount of texture too. This piece would also look great at the foot of a bed. There it could be put to practical use to hold a comforter at night and all those pillows one decorates their bed with. Looking forward to deciding on the perfect spot for it in my new home.
