beautiful! and sturdy! Easy to assemble - 15 minutes from starting to open the box to sitting down - and I did it alone! All parts were there and in fine condition. Four pieces and the bolts - simple - just leaned one side against a chair, put the back in the slots and loosely placed the bolts, added seat and bolts, tightened everything up and it is ready to go! No extra tools - they supplied allen wrench. Packaging was easy to open and not excessive. Note - probably best to use a coat of teak oil on tung oil before placing it outside
I wanted to add a little pizzaz to my side entrance, under a window box and next to me side door. This was just the size to make that area complete I easily spray painted it a very pale green and it fit perfectly under the small window box. It's a very sturdy bench, easy to put together. The simple style can be used with any style and the slightly curved edges soften the look just enough. I'm extremely happy with this purchase!
Purchased this to go on the paver pad I installed overlooking our koi pond. It was easy to put together (8 large screws), I did it alone. The bench is solid; I am 6'1" and 230 lbs, my wife is 5'9" and 160 - it holds both of us comfortably with no swaying or creaking. It is a beautiful addition to the landscaping I did this spring. As suggested by another reviewer, I did apply a coat of tung oil before I put it outside.
