I purchased this bench in the natural wood color - not the black that's pictured here. Because the bench I purchased sold out again, I'm not able to leave a review, except for this item. I still cannot believe I was able to purchase this bench - an exact replica of the Nelson bench - for this price. It's simply stunning. Very easy to put together, is perfect in the front room, or any room in the house. My only issue...only one was left and I couldn't buy another one.
Who needs to buy an original super-expensive **** bench when you can get this ridiculously low priced copy on Overstock? This is just like the real thing. Clean lines, tightly constructed, beautifully stained -- itís got everything the original does except the highway robbery price point. Gotta love Overstock! You guys did it AGAIN! Thanks to you, my home looks like a modernist museum for a fraction of the price.
This is a high quality reproduction of an iconic mid-century design -- the George Nelson hardwood platform bench originally designed in 1946. This beauty is stylish, versatile and functional. Itís a coffee table. Itís a bench. The beautiful architectural lines come together perfectly to create an utterly modern and timeless design. I love this piece so much, it has become a real centerpiece in my apartment. For the price, you really canít go wrong with this piece.
My living room looks amazing with this Slat Bench in Black. The great style and the classic design matches perfectly with every piece of furniture. My living is a bit classic looking, so this black bench is the perfect solution for a classy decorative element. I put magazine racks under the bench and I have to say it fits. You do not have to sit on this high quality piece to decide that is wonderful. It is enough to look at it.
Being that the entire look of this bench is built upon craftsmanship, this item falls WAY short of my expectations. The joinery where the actual seat is looks like my 2 year old child painted it. The black paint is peeling away and worst of all it arrived that way. I can only imagine what it will look like after a little wear- scary! I have not decided if I want a replacment at this point as I feel this problem is most likely a manufacturing issue. I am very disappointed as I have always loved buying from Overstock. :(
Although a few minor dings, great quality! Nothing a little stain marker can't fix! This piece is very solid. Although true to size, it does seem pretty large and substantial. I would place the style as modern or traditional. It would go well mixed with rustic or industrial styes.
Nice bench. Long enough for the end of a king bed. (Many others were too short) going to get a cushion for the top for more comfort

We use this bench as a coffee table and as backup extra living room seating in a Manhattan apartment, it's great for both purposes. We are having a piece of glass cut to fit the top to dress it up a little and prevent small items from slipping through the slats.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's very functional and sturdy as both a table and a bench. The stain job is a little weka in a few spots.

This black slat bench is a really stylish addition to my hallway. I just purchased a great end table where I can keep the keys, bills and phone, and now I ordered this bench for display. The price was really affordable and the quality great. The piece is solid and durable, I sometimes sit on it when taking off my shoes. Really happy I have you guys.
We just finished our indoors pool area and needed some useful pieces on which we can sit and leave the towels. Our children love staying there together with their friends so a few chairs would not have been enough. This is why I ordered four benches. They are great; large, spacey, durable and really comfortable.
I expected lower quality for this price, but fortunately I was wrong. The benches ordered arrived in the best possible quality and they look even better than on picture. They are stable and solid, really comfortable and looking amazing in the hallway.
I bought two of these benches. One of them is backyard and the other is in my den.For a bench, this piece is very comfortable to sit on. One of the great things about this bench is that it isn't too high. My toddler climbs on and off the bench with ease. The legs are very strong and sturdy.

I was pleasantly surprised with how great this bench was when it arrived. I didn't have to put it together and it isn't heavy at all. A really great modern piece of furniture that won't take away from your vintage items.

I ordered a few black benches for the garden. They are really stable and really natural, just simple and comfortable. The look is really charming and natural, just as wanted. The benches are great when we have guests as we have enough seating options outside and the children love hem also. Solid, massive and durable, all on a highly affordable price.
I wanted these benches outside in the garden, but did not know if they were suitable for outdoor use. This is why I asked for help from teh staff and they were really helpful and kind. I received all the advise and opinion needed so I ordered three benches. Now they look amazing outside in the garden and they are really solid, stable and durable just as I was advised. Excellent quality and service. Thanks.
We ordered three benches outside on the porch. They are really simple, useful and elegant. Now we have enough space to sit outside when our friends come over and we spend the warm evenings outside with food and drinks. Service was really great and the staff helpful. Perfectly easy to clean and handle.
I've always wanted a Nelson slat bench, but refuse to pay over $1000 for an original. I see "new" ones are being made & cost around $800, so this is a perfect solution. I put it either in front of the fireplace, or I use as a coffee table. I have another black slat bench in my hall that is an original, but made by another company of that era. It has peg style legs and was likely what people with less money bought back in the day when they wanted to achieve this look. So, this bench looks fabulous but, I 've been warned by our designer-daughter not to sit on it as she thinks it would split in two if someone sat in the middle, so this is something to consider. There must be a reason this is so very inexpensive! If someone has sat on theirs, I would love to know....
