I read all the previous reviews and unpacked it outside, rubbed the finish with a cloth, and left it in the basement for two days. I added two pillows and it is now a wonderful addition to the living room. My only regret, not ordering the smaller bench, which is now sold out.

Nice product. I agree with the other buyers that it does need airing out for a few days. Otherwise , it is great.

I ordered this bench after I read all of the positive reviews. Unfortunatelly, I do not concur at all with them. The positive aspect is that I was dealing with O.com who has unsurpassed customer service. O.com representatives were very helpful in sending me a call tag delivered by UPS who picked up the bench being returned. It arrived with a smashed leg. My experience with O.com is very positive and the company is very ethical. I had no problems returning the bench and will check with my credit card company to see whether the credit has been posted. I am sure it will be. I personally found this item to have very poor workmanship and would not have it in my house even if it were given to me for free. The products used to treat the soft mango wood have an overpowering bad odor. I am surprised at the positive reviews this item has received. The picture looks OK but the actual bench, in my opinion, looks cheap and rather unattractive. I have been very happy with two other items I ordered from O.com. Reps are very professional and a pleasure to deal with.

I recieved this bench a few weeks ago, and am totally delighted. I pondered wheather or not to purchase this and it is lovely. When I recieved the bench there was no odor as mentioned by other reviewers. It complaments my foyer, and I used the under compartment to store blankets. I am completely satisfied with the product , speed of delivery and quality of workmanship.

I was disappointed on the size ,measured the overall and didn't take in consideration that the rolled edges were encluded in the overall. measurement. Cheap looking.. I was going to put in our master, but put it in the kids room. Too much of a hassel to return it.

I absolutely love this bench. It took 3 deliveries to get one to me that wasn't damaged in transit, but it was worth the wait. It is very detailed and looks even better than the photo.

LOVE this product!! I couldn't wait to open the box and I was not disappointed. It's just right for the area under my picture window.

Bench is exactly what I wanted for the space I ordered it for. Small entry way that needed a small seating or drop area. Very cute, very sturdy, would have given 5 stars but there was a large wood knot that left a divet in one of the legs, thankfully it was in a place such that when put against the wall would not be seen. Not a deal breaker for me, I really am happy with the workmanship and the look.

We bought 2 of these. One is used as a small coffee table in our den. The other is used as a bench by our garage entry for changing shoes; it is up to the task of sitting on it. We like the rustic look and was exactly what we were looking for. Is it fine furniture? No! However it is an attractive and well made bench that can serve many functions.

After seeing a photo and reading previous reviews on the Mango Wood bench, we decided to take a leap of faith and purchase it on line. It arrived in a reasonable period of time, came out of the box in perfect condition and took no assembly. We love it. I took reviewers suggestion of wiping it down with a dry, clean cloth to remove excess stain. Good idea! My corgi Mango can now leap up on the bed unassisted using the bench as her step and we finally have storage for our pillows and blankets. Functional AND beautiful!

I love this bench....it is the second one I have bought from you in the past year... The first is in my kitchen annex room and it holds all of the stuff that wont fit in my pantry...and it is an attractive place to sit too. The new one is now in my master bathroom, sitting right under a window that is the exact same width of the bench...looks built in. I love the one in the bathroom even more, because it has the additional feature of 2 pretty heavy duty drawers, which are super handy. I could not be any happier with this piece....the delivery was quick and super cheap, got here a few days before expected...the piece came in perfect condition....I love shopping from this site... I have only bought a few things so far, but will def go to this sight first when shopping now.... thanks for a great piece of furniture, it is super sturdy, well build, great materials, and a piece that I will have for my whole life.....it looks fantastic and didnt break my bank.... getting ready to buy a chair and ottoman from you for my living room this week.

Basic wooden bench. Rustic and sturdy, but fits well for the purpose I purchased it for.

This mango wood bench far exceeded my expectations. It is beautiful. I ordered this Asian style bench to place under a 6 ft., 3-panel oriental screen. It is perfect and the wall looks wonderful.

This is a bench that I had hoped looked as authentic as the one pictured on the Overstock website. Unfortunately, it looks and feels like any wooden bench that has been mass manufactured. It is a sturdy bench, however, that could add to any room decor. It is not as heavy as I had hoped which makes me think it is partly constructed from veneers and weak hardwoods.

Purchased this attractive reclaimed wood bench to play double-duty as a dining table bench and piano bench in our simply-designed home. Overstock delivered quckly. We were very happy. Construction was simple and straightforward, though the package came with less washers (and more bolts) than needed. Hardware store run fixed that. Bench built looked great. From mid-March, seemingly great. This Monday, June 1st, I sat at our dining table working. My wife sat next to me, leaning over to place her head on my shoulder. That's when we heard the crack. Before we could respond, I, 6'2" and 195 lbs and she, 5'4" and 145, found ourselves on the floor. The bolted areas were secure as ever; it was weakness in the bench, not the legs or connections. In fact, it seemed the underside support was screwed directly into a weak piece of the wood. The spit followed the line of what we thought was a "character mark." If you like to spend ****+ for a decorative bench, by all means. If you want to sit on your bench, I'd advise against this one strongly. I don't see any opportunity to be compensated for faulty product either, so please choose with care.
