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 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.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color as described.

A beautiful strong piece! I love the extra length, as I can see myself napping on it! It was easy to assemble as I did so in under an hour, only because I was watching TV at the same time lol. So strong and yet light enough for me to move it about without needing help. Packaging was perfect and shipping fast!
Really great for the price. We saw many for $400-$600 & I think this one looks just as nice, for just a fraction of the price. It is slightly less deep (on the seat), than others too (19"), which was perfect for my front porch because it's not very big. And it's still comfortable to sit on. Also, it arrived very quickly - only a couple days after we ordered. Easy to put together too. The only thing I would caution about is the color - it is MUCH lighter than pictured. It's more of a light cherry wood color, not dark brown like the picture suggests. But it can always be painted or stained. Overall, worth the money.
