We've had this in our backyard for over three years now. It's still as sturdy as day one. However, after seasons of winter/summer sitting in full sun, the wood needs to be periodically maintained with some teak oil to keep it as close to the original color as one can (but we expected that from the beginning). If left alone, it will weather towards the gray side.
I purchased this bench because other reviews said it was easy to assemble. AND IT WAS!! Assembled and in place in my front yard in less than 45 minutes. It is an absolutely beautiful bench, in workmanship, color, sturdy, etc. Highly recommend this for everyone.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It is slightly redder in person, but absolutely lovely.
- How is the quality of the product? Outstanding!!
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes.
This looks so much nicer in person than in the photo. I was planning to paint it but I love the tone of the wood so much I'm leaving it as is. The only issue is that 2 of the slats on the seat were already detaching as it came out of the box. It's more for decoration than function on our porch so it will be fine - but it makes me think this wouldn't hold up under heavy use.
I bought two of these and have only had them for a short time so I cannot speak to their longevity, but they are very good looking and sturdy. They were easy to assemble - although be careful as taking your eyes off the project for a moment can result in a part being screwed in upside-down. Forget the intructions as an aid to assembly, but do read for entertainment. Hysterical!!! Very happy for the price. And of course, I love Overstock.
I found this bench to be easy to put together and perfect for the front porch. It easly sits two adults and one child. However, I am having difficulty finding a bench cushon to fit the bench seat. The delivery of the bench was sooner than expected as it arrived in about 4 days from the order.
I purchased four of these to go around our fire pit. They look great, assemble in less than ten minutes each, and seem pretty sturdy while still being light enough to easily move around. They seat two adults comfortably and three if you don't mind getting a bit cozy. The only question is how they'll age, but I rather like the worn look for wood furniture anyway.
Nice looking bench but the seat is a bit too narrow. My dog used our last bench as an outdoor bed but she is uncomfortable on this bench. The back is super straight so if you tend to slouch you will be uneasy sitting down. Works as a place to set groceries while you open the door.
I bought two of these Milano benches and was not wowed. Although they fit the need for my outdoor seating around the fire pit I don't think they will last over 1 season. Not as good of a value if I have to buy benches every year.
