An excellent piece of workmanship. Its very easy to assemble. Moises provides a few extra pegs just in case. I glued the pegs so they dont fall of accidentally.

"Lovely accent"

The workmanship is superb. This bench is now my favorite piece of furniture. I use it every day as I get ready in the morning. It is a wonderful focal point in my decor. Friends have even described it as a throne, its so lovely. Gracias, Sr. Álvarez!

"Adorable and lovely."

Beautiful handcrafted leather on the sides of the table as well as the top makes this piece very special. The contrast between the darker leather and the lighter wood adds to its interest. The drawer pulls are of good quality. The arrival of this purchase made my day and continues to give pleasure daily.

"beautiful design"

This chair is beautiful to look at, and I do so wish it were more comfortable for me. It may be good for other people, but unfortunately Ive found that it causes me back pain. Although I imagine the leather would soften over time, it is very hard to sit on, and I have to use cushions on it to provide back support as well as cushioning for the bottom. Because of covid, I havent had anyone else here to try it out, but Im hoping that its good for visitors even though its not good for me. I do love to look at it.
