...was so looking forward to receiving this item, as it was exactly what I needed for a corner of my great room. However, when we unpacked it we saw that there was a few areas that 'looked' damaged....like the edges where the stain was off. Putting it together was easy, but when complete assembled it rocked, was not steady: one side/legs were a little off. (I built it up by adding a few felt floor protectors. Also. there is a 'bubble' in the stain in the main seating area. I am keeping it though. I fixed the 'scratches' with a brown marker and the 'bubble' in the seating area will be covered with a few throw pillows. I probably would return it..IF the Styrofoam didn't disintegrate upon taking it out of the carton! Oh well, a Lesson learned.....
First off I should have bought an Amish made product I wanted in the first place. That said this item goes together easy. The bench and back rest were very sub par and not well made. I received replacement parts and rebuilt the bench its ok at least the bench is not falling apart yet. The only thing good was the price, it's so true you get what you pay for! Good luck if you try this item.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A little darker in person.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The first item I received was very sub par! Second seems alright just a bit better than first.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Deciante description. Just a little disappointed in the item overall.
Would've been a great purchase except it arrived with a big crack that went thru and thru the wood back detail. Color was precise. Overstock handled the return well, with good communication and prompt refund. I will purchase via Overstock again for great customer service.
The perfect addition to a breakfast nook, the Safavieh Bejamin bench is beautiful while still being a sturdy piece of furniture. Arrived safely and on time. Easy to assemble, all the parts were in a bag with the directions. Parts were labeled so there was no confusion. Have had a cushion made to complete the look in my kitchen! Definitely recommend for quality and ease.
I did see this bench elsewhere, but this was the lowest price. I might have rated it higher if it hadn't shown up with the dowels broken off of one end of the bench back. That was immediately disappointing, but keeping it outweighed going through a return process. It was also much darker than pictured. It seems sturdy enough (even with the missing dowels), but the picture definitely looks better than the actual product. Time will tell.
Very nice bench for the money. Fits perfectly in our entry way. Easy to assemble but the instructions included for assembly were wrong. they were for another type of bench. However it was obvious how it needed to be assembled with only 4 pieces. Would recommend it.
