I purchased this bench to replace an old one in my foyer. It is sturdy for sitting and well made for the price, and the color is just a wee bit darker than the online photo. My husband put it together in a jiffy. I really like the design, interesting but not too ornate. I looked for almost a year to find a bench I like, and this one fits the bill. It was delivered when promised.
First of all, it is small, so make sure you look at the measurements before you purchase to make sure it's what you're looking for; I saw some complaints about that. I was looking for a small bench to fit in the area from my garage. This bench is perfect! The wood looks great, the stain is beautiful and looks great with my hardwood floors. I put it together myself, and it was simple. It was sent to me nicely packaged and well protected. I have no complaints!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Yes
I purchased this as an entry way bench to store shoes under and bags on. I do not have a large entry way so I measured before I ordered. Its perfect for my space. The color is more cherry but its nice and that is not a deal breaker for me. I put it together in less than 15 minutes. Its like 8 large screws and 4 pieces (wood bench pieces). I think its a deal! I would definitely recommend it.Very classic piece that would fit nice in any room.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was darker than the pic, more red than brown- similar to cherry colored.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is solid, and sturdy.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fairly accurate.
I love this bench! Yes, it's small so make sure you check the measurements before ordering this. It is heavily varnished that the color actually sticks to your hands when assembling this. Don't worry though coz it goes away after wiping it with a dry cloth and letting it air for some days. Easy to put together and will get a number of compliments, for sure! We placed the bench in our entry way beside a very tall indoor plant. It looked beautiful! I second the other reviewer who mentioned about putting a small pillow.. it's a nice touch to the bench.
I was extremely disappointed with the quality of this product. I was so excited when I ordered it, after reading all of the great reviews.
I thought it was a piece of junk. It looked really cheap, not even close to the photo. To make matters worse, the pieces were damaged. One of the end pieces, where the armrest was looked like it was carved from a rotten piece of wood, which was deformed.
The best part of this experience was the customer service team at overstock, who empathized with my dis-satisfaction, allowed me to return the defective product free of charge and refunded my purchase price.
I read a lot of reviews prior to ordering this and regardless to the pros and cons of others all I can say is it was everything that the description says of it and it turned out to be PERFECT for my needs. I have a bay window in my master bedroom and this was my main reason for the purchase. Someone else had mentioned how difficult it is to find benches these days when shopping in stores (or at least affordable ones to suite my budget), which led me to go on-line. This bench is the RIGHT color for my bedroom furnishings, the RIGHT size for 2 medium frame people to sit at same time, and definitely the RIGHT price for my budget. The bench is sturdy, not too overly ornate, modern, and classy touch. It arrived in about 4 days of ordering, nicely packed and with NO DAMAGES! I am a female by myself and I found it a little difficult to put together-ONLY because I really needed a 2nd person to hold the side arms to the back so that I could screw in the screws. But other than having to find an "alternative" to lean the bench to..it is very simple to put together. It comes with instructions but EVEN if it did not, it is not complicated or lengthy. This is my 2nd purchase from Overstock and I have been pleased in both instances.
I am a huge fan of genuine Mahogany and Teak wood so this bench was a good find for me. My husband assembled this in less than 20 minutes.I Love the dark color and real wood. (no fiber board here) Size was perfect for my location, but smaller than most benches. Great bench and value, especially for the price!
This bench looks exactly like the picture. It definitely has a distinct redness too it. My first bench arrived with a damaged arm, so I contacted customer service and they sent me a replacement arm within 10 days. The second arm was fine. The bench was easy to put together and is very sturdy. I have been using it for almost a year and it has held up well, still looks like new. Two can sit side by side comfortably on it. I would say the quality of the finish/wood is the only reason I did not give this a 5 rating. The finish is a little shiny and there are a few minor imperfections in the wood. I do think is was an excellent value for the price.

Is the height on this bench the seat height or the back of the bench height? Seems rather low.
Thanks!niolea40 on Mar 15, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
