This is a beautiful bench, once put together. The only negative aspect of this product is that it takes two adults to put it together. However, the bench is so lovely (many neighbors have complemented about how pretty it is), it is worth the hassle of waiting for 2 people to assemble it.
After reading other reviews that stated the bench back was more bronze color than the picture we decided that wouldn't be a problem. However when we got the bench that was not the case. It wasn't bronze at all but a uniformed color so maybe the manufacturer read the reviews and fixed the color scheme. The bench is heavy duty, beautiful and actually comfortable (for metal). The seat contours in just the right places. We really like this bench. As one reviewer said when putting the bench together don't tighten all the screws until all pieces are in place. When we assembled the last piece, which was the arm, we had to go back and loosen other pieces so the screw would meet the hole.
I purchased this bench for our front porch. Of course, it required assembly, which was not very difficult. It is not as comfortable as I thought, but it does decorate the porch nicely. I wish it had not come from China, but in our day and age, it is difficult to find anything made in America any longer. A good deal for the price.
While the photo of the bench is beautiful in reality it is very dark with only a hint of the beautiful copper rightness. However the real issue is with the manufacturing. After receiving it, the pre-drilled holes that connect the seat to the back did not match and after an hour I simply gave up and called Overstock. They are Great when there is an issue with a product and are to be commended on their policies and people. Overstock sent me another bench and between the two boxes (benches) I was able to put one together yet there were still issues with the right front leg that stuck out. Again this was a pre-drilled hole that was not accurate. Although the bench design is attractive, you better order two so you can put one together, it is not made well. Could not in all honesty recommend this product.
I purchased this bench 2 years ago. I love it. The color is rich bronze color, and the floral detail is very nice. It's been outside in our Garden in Chicago for 7 months, then I decide put it on our covered porch for another year. It still looks brand new, is very sturdy and I am very happy with this purchase.. The quality is worth the price.
We had this bench a little over a year when we discovered the leg was cracked between the screw holes. Overstock had us a new leg within a few days. This bench is mostly for looks where I have set it on our patio and I am very happy with it although it was surprising to have it crack. I hope we have it for many, many years.
Very attractive and rich looking. I'm getting a lot of compliments from neighbors.

The bench is lovely to look at but uncomfortable to sit in for any length of time. It is great as garden art - which wasn't my original intent for the bench- but it is beautiful to loo at.

Thought I would order one bench and see if I liked it, then, order two more. Sadly, by the time it arrived and saw how delighted I was with this bench, it was then out of stock, ordered another bench online which looked exactly the same and it was a huge mistake. The picture nor the quality did not match the bench by a long shot and back it went. He who hesitates............

The bench is quite nice for my little outdoor shady spot. I'm just hoping all the bolts, and there are several, hold over time. Otherwise, it is very attractive and comfortable,
