The Piano Dad’s Review

It’s hard to find a good quality, padded piano bench that also looks great!

As the old refrain goes, “they don’t make them like they used to”. Well, most furniture makers don’t, but SONGMICS have done a great job with this particular padded piano bench.

This solid wood bench features a faux leather padded top and is incredibly stable and durable.

It has rubber pads on the feet to protect hardwood floors and the bench itself can accommodate up to 300 lbs.

There is a large music storage compartment under the seat, which can accommodate not just sheet music but small accessories too.

Some Assembly Required

The bench is shipped in pieces, and you will need to attach the legs to the box before you can use it.

This is a fairly simple job and instructions and tools are provided. The tools that they provide are small and a little awkward to use, so if you have a tool set at home you may want to have your socket wrench on hand for when the delivery comes.

With the right tools, assembly takes just a few minutes.

Build Quality

The build quality is good.

Some feel the legs look flimsy, but I have had no issues with them. The bench feels nice and strong when you sit on it and there are no worrying creaks!

Storage Area is a Bit Lacking

The only thing that lets the bench down is the storage area. While it’s nice and spacious, the bottom is chipboard, and it doesn’t feel like it can hold a lot.

For sheet music and small accessories, it is up to the job, so this is a minor point which is noteworthy more because it lets the rest of the design down.

Design and Appeal

This bench makes a great addition to an entertaining area or as a main seat for a family heirloom piano.

It looks stunning, and it is comfortable to use too. SONGMICS have managed to combine form and function in perfect fashion.
