This is a beautiful bench. The fabric is great quality. I purchased it only for looks not for actually using as it is going to sit at the end of the bed. It's fairly large. I have a queen size bed and it is almost the width of the bed. There's not a ton of cushioning if you are planning on using it to sit or so. I've made several purchases from Overstock and I've yet to be disapointed.
I was looking to replace my existing brown bench with something more fresh and contemporary. This did the trick!! I use it in front of a large window looking out to my backyard patio and yard. Looks wonderful. Now I'm looking for a contemporary pole lamp to sit next to it. Overstock here I come!!!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good match.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good. A little light weight. But works perfectly for what I'm using it for.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very good.
This bench looks awesome in my apartment full of whites/dark browns/greys. Really adds some depth to the room -- but it's incredibly uncomfortable if you sit in the middle. There is very minimal padding and so it's a very pretty but not functional bench. I'd use it more as an ottoman with a tray on top if I were to do it again.
I bought the Melrose Bench and matching Melrose Wingback Chairs (the color and pattern are exactly the same even though bench looks like a brighter color in photo) to use as a dining bench. Could be used under a window sill in a living or bedroom or at the foot of bed-measure first. Bench is very good/high quality, very modern and gives a pop of color (more a bluish teal not turquoise) to the room. The bench is very light weight and simple to move, I am 5'2" and 1115 pounds and it's a cinch. Also, the bench was delivered to my door and no assembly required; no damages in transit.
At some point will this bench be made without fire retardants in the foam? Now that the California Law TB-117-2013 has passed, it's no longer required to use harmful fire retardant chemicals in upholstery foam and our family is trying to avoid it in all our purchases. Please let me know. It's an awesome bench, stylistically. Thanks.anonym3 on Apr 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

We're thinking of adding a bench to our small living room for extra seating. It looks long enough for 2 people but I'm wondering how much weight it will support.cjhorn on Oct 15, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
