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!
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.
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

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.
Assembled the bench within 20 minutes or so last night. It went together easily and looks fantastic in my kitchen. Haven't been able to test it out much, but it feels quite sturdy. This will be a great spot for friends to hang out when we have people over. It will also serve double-duty as a spot to sit and take off coats and boots during the winter.
There was a little bit of damage on the top towards the corner, which I noticed right away when unpacking the bench. It looks like a black mark/smudge that was swiped across a couple of slats, but it also looks like something that could be scraped or sanded off (although in one area it was more of a gouge in the wood). I really don't mind that small imperfection, so I decided to keep it. However, that's why I marked the quality and value a little lower (4/5 stars).
Overall, I'd say it's worth the money due to the overall style - and it doesn't hurt that I got the look I wanted for $**** less than I thought I'd have to spend. I don't think people will notice the mark and I may take some steps to try to remove it.
My husband and I love this bench! We spent several months looking for a coffee table to match our midcentury modern decor. This bench is absolutely perfect as a coffee table. The design of the bench and the medium-colored finish is very versatile style-wise and coordinates nicely with wood in our home that is both darker and lighter. The best part is that we will always be able to find a place for this bench because it's so versatile - it can serve as a bench, a hallway table, a coffee table, a plant stand, and more. My husband is also very particular about design elements and he loved that this iconic design is inspired by a George Nelson design. Took about 10 minutes to assemble. Highly recommend this beautiful, classic bench!
This bench looks great! ... as long as you don't look too closely. We had to send it back a few times as it was damaged during the shipping process but 3rd times the charm! We're currently using it as a bench at the end of our bed and it looks great. Like others have noted do not sit on the very end or you may tip over.
I have received conflicting informaiton on this slat bench. The product detail indicates that it is made of wood and metal. So I assumed that the legs are metal as the top certainly is wood. A response to another question here indicates that the legs are made of wood. Can you confirm which is correct and if the legs are made of wood what is made of metal?

As far as I can tell, the whole thing is made of wood. Not very high quality wood, unfortunately. There were a lot of splinters & unfinished edges where the slats join each other.jacquelinesylvie on Nov 19, 2014
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
