This handsome seiza meditation bench comes with a non-removable black cushion and folding legs that make it easy to pack, even in a small suitcase. The rounded base gives you just the right amount of tilt, regardless of your height or weight.
18" long x 8.5" high x 7" wide.

I am not used to sitting on a bench with legs that are curved like a rocking chair. I also sit on a thin rug. So this bench needed more padding underneath it to stay steady. Aside from that it is a well-made bench.
Very happy with it. Had hip replacement surgery 2 years ago and sitting cross legged is more difficult for me now since I don't quite have the ranch of motion in my right leg/hip that I used to have. The bench has been a lifesaver for my meditation practice. Very comfortable.
Shipped very fast and was pleasantly surprised about the quality of this bench. Rounded legs allow for a good range of height and the bench is overall very comfortable.
It's nice on the floor.
I bought this bench following a knee problem, and it promised to be a solution. I have learned that there are two important elements in a bench: the elevation of the risers, and their tilt capacity. This bench is, relatively speaking, low in elevation. This means that the fold of the knees is relatively severe compared to higher elevations. Additionally, the curve of the riser has a smaller arc. Because of this I found it afforded less relief for my knees, and less stability in terms of adjustments for the spine. I had the advantage of a woodworking mate, who replaces the risers, higher and with a broader arc, and this was a great improvement. Moral of story: know how high you need the bench, and know what kind of tilt you need.
Worked perfectly, and the quality is worth the price.
Although I like the bench, I feel that the price is way too high for the product.
This bench is sturdy, the perfect height, and very comfortable. I looked at other benches, and this one was also priced much more reasonably than most. It arrived quickly. I couldn't be happier!
I have tried many cushions and several benches. This wonderful little bench lets me sit longer, and it fits in a carry on suitcase for travel.
This is a very sturdy yet lightweight beautiful bench. I tried it sitting on for about half-an-hour motionless and it gave me good comfort. I am 6 feet and feel comfortable for my height. Definitely recommend. It is easy and lightweight to carry during travels. I wish they had also come up with a drawstring carry-bag for the same(a necessary need) and also benches in different colors rather than just black!!!
