Ok, I was very impressed with the swift delivery of this product. I ordered 2 (other) outdoor benches and then 2 days later ordered two of these...I received these last Wed and the first ordered set, today!! Very, very impressed!!! On to the product itself - - appears to be well made, not heavy at all, surprisingly but not in a bad way. It appears to be solid but the wood itself is on the lighter side. It says weathered "grey" bench and although I read the other reviews, I went ahead and ordered 2 and hoped that mine would be on the grey side, but it is not. Very textural piece in terms of color but to the touch, it is smooth despite the wood graining; will not have any problem with splinter or anything like that. It's a very attractive modern looking piece, straight lines, which I like a lot. The best part? It came in 1 piece, no assembly required. The picture above looks to be reddish with dark grains, IRL it's light colored wood with black grains. The finish product is a beautiful piece. I would have given it 5 stars if the color is as described. All in all, very happy with the purchase and I can't wait to get my black/brown long table, the same lines as with this bench. I will put these on each side and regular upholstered chairs on each end.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? NOT Grey At All!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Appears to be of good quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate except for the color
My husband and I are so pleased with this bench! We wanted something different for our long, dark brown IKEA table ("Bjursta"), so we placed the it on one side and flanked the other sides with parson chairs. The look is amazing - a rustic finish with contemporary lines so as not to appear too fussy. The bench came fully assembled (very pleasant surprise) and passed the function test with flying colors at our Halloween party. It easily accommodates three adults and feels solid as a rock.
I was surprised to read another reviewer's mention of splinters, because I can run my hand back and forth along the entire length without any roughness. It's weathered, yes, but the grooves are smoothly sanded and sealed.
The only downside I imagine is that it probably wouldn't be comfortable to sit on for hours on end. I suppose one could fashion a custom cushion, but it would be a shame to cover up the beautiful surface. ;) In any case, the function and style can't be beat at this price. If there were a 3 to 4 foot version, I'd probably buy that too!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is accurate to the photos (brown, not grey)
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description states that the bench is grey, but it is definitely brown as pictured.
this bench is very narrow so gettign a cushion would be hard and it might look weird. So check the dimnsions. Otherwise a nice product. Comes in a huge box so plus that no assembly reqd./ minus that packaging was not sustainably done.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? more natural wood than weathered
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good - strong joints /edges finished smoothly/ stable and level
How accurate was the on site description of the product? good
Well packaged, no assembly required, and suitable for a number of purposes in my home, both decorative and functional. Generally, I'm satisfied with this, but this is where the product is not what I expected:
1. There is a lot of texture to the bench. You can feel the grain and I'd be nervous to sit on it wearing a fine fabric.
2. I expected a cleaner, modern, monolithic look. At the inside corners (juncture between the horizontal plank that you'd sit on and the legs), there's an extra wood support piece stuck in that's used to attach everything together. Even going back now to look for it, it's pretty hard to see this in any of the pictures. A nice peice of furniture would have connected the legs and bench together without adding another block of wood that ruins the clean look.
3. In the photos, the grain looks tight enough that the dark grain color would read over the lighter color. That's the not the case with my bench.
4. The bench wobbles when sitting on a smooth and level surface.
Although the bench was not what I expected, I've found a use for it and seems to be holding up fine after a few months of use.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? In the actual product, the wood is lighter and the grain is more pronounced. The grain on my bench isn't nearly as tight as the grain in the close up picture that's currently posted.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Doesn't sit flat on hardwood floor, but sits fine on a rug
This was perfect bench to sit along our walkway. It's a great place to sit and put on/take off your shoes. It's a great bench to just put things down to gather what you might need before leaving the house. The best part is no assembly required it comes in a box you open it and use it!!!!
These chairs look like plastic, feel like splinters, are quite narrow and are not cut perfectly straight across the bottoms so they shift. Overall very disappointing- not a high end look as they appear in pics.
Thank you for your question rimix. Yes, we have a few to choose from that are listed here. Please see the Hamshire 82-inch Dining Table, item 15243395 and the Renate Dining Table, item 15072613. These two table would work beautifully with the bench. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 8, 2013
I know this bench has a weathered "reclaimed" look, but is the actual surface rough or smooth?jtannen on Jun 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The surface has texture to it--not smooth like a baby's bottom. However, its texture is smooth so as to NOT give rise to the worry of splinters. As a side note, make sure you're happy with the dimensions, b/c it is what it is.swinnefeld on Jun 16, 2013
Mine is smooth. The kids sit on it to take their shoes off with no problems. It's in our mud room and we get a lot of compliments on it.tammy48 on Jun 17, 2013
It looks good but is a bit rough to the touch (more like grooves than anything else). Sort of like weathered but not just in coloring.jaynef1234 on Jun 26, 2013

I am wondering if I can use this bench as a narrow coffee table for in front of my couch. Do you think it is heavy enough that my dog wouldn't tip it over? on Feb 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The item''s shipping weight is 45.0 lbs, so it would depend upon the size of your dog. This would be perfect to use in front of your couch. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 29, 2012
