I needed a piece that would fit in a small area, this does it. It seems very frail, and a piece was broken when we received it, but called the company and a new piece came within a week, no problem. It was a little more costly than I would think it should be, but, again it fits the bill.. It looks very nice in our foyer.
I ordered the bench for a little spot in the foyer so people have a place to sit and put on their shoes. The bench was just perfect. The craftsmanship was great for the price. I did have to have help to put it together. It was hard to do alone and coordinate all the pieces. Now it is together and looks great and it very sturdy. I ordered a cushion from a children's furniture web site and it fits just perfectly!
The product arrived quickly without damage. I was able to put this together by myself in an hour. Even tho the seat is supposed to attach to the frame, there weren't any pre-cut holes to do so. (I did, however, receive the hardward for it) It's a sturdy bench and the price is right. It fits perfectly under the window so my dog can look out.
The small nook in the entry from our garage was always cluttered with shoes and although we have hooks and a shelf attached to the wall bags and coats would always be hanging around our kitchen table or on the kitchen floor. I was looking for a small bench with storage and a back to keep us organized without an odd looking gap between the bench and the shelf. Since I wanted a bench with a back and needed it to be less than 42" wide this was pretty much my only option in my budget. This bench fits perfectly and we now have a very organized entry that prevents clutter in our kitchen. Well worth the money. It fits the space perfectly and is tall enough to keep the shelf above from looking too high. I do plan to add felt to the bottom of the baskets so they do not scratch the bench because although I have not noticed much wear and tear since we have gotten it, I can see it being an issue in the future. It did arrive in great condition and my husband and I assembled it easily. We are not typically sitting on it, but it feels sturdy under my weight or my husband's.
Cute Bench, has lasted a couple years. one of the legs broke off after 2 moves and a couple years, glued it back together with wood glue and its fine! The baskets are a great touch but they scrape on the bottom, doesn't matter much because they are not visible.
We wanted something in our make shift mud room and thought this piece would work. Unfortunately it looked like a kids bench, not a place for adults to use. Now that we have it it's in our basement. Just keep that in mind. It is a sturdy piece.
I ordered this bench for my entry way. As far as appearance it looks just as pictured and the size was perfect. It was very easy to assemble even though after opening I realized that the instructions were missing. Along with a one of the wood hole covers. Clearly it was a return from another customer that was shipped to me. Since all the hardware was in a standard sandwich bag. Other than those issues, If you are looking for a small bench this is perfect.
This was just what I wanted, but once we got it I quickly realized it was extremely cheap materials. It was very difficult to assemble, even with two people. We screwed at least one screw through the finish on the top, but there was really no better way to put it together, so you just have to be so careful. I was also paranoid about scratching the wood because it just seemed so cheap. I think I'm definitely going to coat the whole thing with polyurethane to help protect it. I don't want to bother sending it back but I wouldn't buy it again if I had the option.
