This bench is a good copy of designer George Nelson's famous 1946 platform bench, which is a landmark of modern design. The clean, rectilinear lines reflect designer George Nelson's architectural background and his insistence on what he called "honest" design - making an honest visual statement about an object's purpose. For a fraction of the price of the original, I have exactly what Nelson intended in my home -- a multipurpose display and resting place that looks great in virtually any situation. Thank you, Overstock, for carrying this modernist classic for a pragmatist's price!
for the money it is hard to beat this bench table. It is extremely useful because it serves as a table and is strong enough to support 3 people as a bench. Nothing cheap or flimsy about this unit. I have all the confidence in the world that this piece will not break apart from too much weight on it. If you are looking for a european knockoff, this piece will certainly fit the bill.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? colors matched the picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. product build quality is great for the money
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate description
Okay. Here’s the deal. This is a really, really, really well fabricated reproduction of that famous icon of modern design, the George Nelson bench. I have been looking at other repros for many times the price and decided to get this one because of past great experiences with Overtstock. I am so happy I did. This is constructed just as well and looks just as good as other repros that are much more expensive. Incredible deal!
I liked the look of the bench. However, de-laminating paint after less than a year is unacceptable. I purchased three benches to sit side by side, and each bench is slightly different in height. I decided to accept this, but it is strange that each bench is slightly wonky. However, the de-laminating paint is the real problem. I don't want to have to remove paint from all three benches and then re-paint. Big pain. Big time problem. Furniture should last more than 10 months!!!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? similar
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor. One bench arrived broken. Overstock replaced it. However, in less than 10 months the black paint on the legs began to buckle and peel. It was not mistreated in any manner. Overstock refused to accept return or repair, etc.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty accurate. However, the product had strong outgassing smell.
Not only had the great and simple look caught my eyes but the natural elegance of this bench also. The classic wooden bench gives the natural atmosphere for my living while it is a great addition to the decor. It is comfortable to sit on, it is easy to clean and it looks fantastic. I ordered one into the hall also as the price was low I managed to buy more than one. Simplicity and naturalness makes this bench so unique and fine.
I am very pleased with my selection; the bench is sturdy and I love the design; it fits in well with my kitchen. It was very easy to put together. It is the right length and the right height. I love it.
First bench arrived in an odd box and was broken. Quick e-mail to Overstock and the second was on the way within 36 hours - no charge, no hassle. Second arrived in a factory fresh box and was perfect. This is a very good replica of a classic mid-century modern piece. It is sturdy, well-made and beautiful. Overstock continues to impress me with their products, price and great service. Usually you have to pick two of the three.
I am in love with this bench! After reading the reviews, and noting the large price difference between this and similar-style benched, I knew that I probably wouldn't be getting something that was really high in quality. I was right. It is a sturdy piece, but there are definitely imperfections in the wood, but it's a great bargain for the price and I'm happy with it.
Watched this item for over a year. Fast shipping. Very well packaged. No damage. Easy to assemble. (8 bolts) No marks or blemishes. Fantastic price. Beautiful modern classic piece! Had it for 2 weeks now. Bench is perfect in our entryway. Love how light from our light panels can still be seen through the slats of the bench versus a solid piece of furniture. The wood is beautiful, even shades of wood chosen for the slat pieces. (No darker pieces) Bench did lift slightly on end once so far- 2 guests were on one half of bench. They got up fast so no one fell. Was not a big deal. It is not too low as I thought it might be. (It's the height of our fireplace hearth.) Overstock Customer Service was exceptional for this day and age, truly helpful, caring, friendly. Totally happy with entire experience, this was my firs purchase from Overstock.
This is a great bench for the price. It's well made, easy to assemble and looks fantastic. It hardly differs from the designer Herman Miller Nelson Platform bench sold for over $800! I am very pleased that I got a sturdy bench that is also a glamorous knock-off without feeling or looking like a replica.
Are the measurement of this bench accurate? It states only 14" high. To be used as a bench it has to be taller - is it possible the measurements are mixed up between height and depth?pjatlanta on Mar 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

The maximum weight limit for sitting on the Slat Bench in Natural is up to 250 pounds. Thank you.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 18, 2013
Hi. Many of the bench measurements on this site have got height/depth and width mixed up. Is this bench actually 14" high? As in, the height from the floor? I know it sounds silly , but Ive looked at nearly ALL of the benches on Overstock and many have depth/width mixed up, etc. Thank you. I wanted to use it as a dining bench but 14" is not tall enough. 18-19 is, but this is listed as depth.wiggimi on Feb 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
