Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JunieS Somewhat disappointed
Got the bench to be used as a piano bench.
It has no lid for music as one I had bought
bought 2 or 3 yrs. ago. It sits a lot lower than
my original one since the top does not raise.
The seat must not be too firm or well supported. It lets me "sink" down low when
sitting on it. It looks great in black leather -
was a good price. It will now be used by our
church keyboard player. I cannot use it at
our grand piano. Wrong height. It measures
the same as the first one, but does sit a
lot lower. This was a donation for our church.
So it will be used - just not by me - so that is
why I am "disappointed". Depends on what
you want to use it for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JennieCash Not amazing but pretty nice!
This bench is not a finely crafted piece of furniture that will last a lifetime but if you're looking for a relatively inexpensive piece this could be it. I ordered two benches, both were extremely easy to assemble; only a few minutes each. One arrived sans hardware, however, Home Decorators remedied that quickly and efficiently and I had the needed parts within a few days. The leather is a bit thin compared to others I've seen but overall I'm pleased with the bench. Older house guests are happy to have a place to sit in the mudroom when dealing with shoes. Home Decorators Customer Service was excellent the two times I spoke with a rep. I would certainly shop with them again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by adri I like the appearance of this bench and overall I'm pretty happy with the product. The under part of the cushion has velcro and you'll need to pull it open in order to assemble the legs. Be very careful opening the velcro as it easily rips off the thin under material at the bottom of the bench (not visible but why to rip it apart?)
Also, the assembly should be piece of cake if the company would be more careful about making the holes in the bench frame match the ones in the legs better for perfect/easy fit. It took me longer than it should to assemble it for this reason.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by homedecgroupie Perfect bench!
This bench looks great under the window in our bedroom. It's a good quality piece of furniture and definitely has an air of sophistication. The padding is thick and comfortable. The dark brown leather is very dark, almost black in some lighting conditions. Assembly was easy; the only challenge was finding the legs. (They were well-wrapped and tucked up inside the bench. The fabric on the under side of the bench opens at each end with Velcro to access the place where the legs are stored for shipping.)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by swtand Attractive bench
I just received my Venezia bench in black today. It was very easy to assemble. It is not a high quality piece of furniture, but it's what I would expect at this price point and it looks very nice in my entryway. Note - the piece I received does not look exactly like the picture. Mine has only three seams with no seam down the middle. To me, the picture looks like it has four seams plus one down the middle. I think the one I received is very nice looking and would recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grun Just What I Wanted
Arrived quickly and safely in one big box. Easy to open; all parts present. Fortunately we had a German visitor
with a Ph.D. in physics who loved the challenge and put
it together in no time at all. Needed tools included.
Fits my space; holds my weight. Room below for shoes
and books while remaining easy to move and perhaps
use as an ottoman or coffee table when needed.
Finish on the bottom of the seat is the only weak spot in
general appearance. I'd buy it again and again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2292012 Very nice bench
I purchased this bench to place below a double window in my living room. It was a difficult place to arrange any furniture, so this worked out nicely. The bench is a very dark brown, almost black-looking. I would have preferred a slightly lighter brown, however this blends fine. There is no seaming horizontally, as appears in the picture, but does have the four vertical seams. The leather is very nice and the bench provides additional seating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maggiebee Very good purchase
The packaging was solid and the assembly, according to my husband was very easy.
The bench is very attractive and matches the set of our dining chairs we already had.
We purchased the bench for when we have more than four guests for dinner - since our dining room is quite small , it was easy to tuck it under the table and place it against the wall. It will be first tested this weekend.
