how much weight does this bench hold?
Bench arrived fairly quickly. Easy to assemble. Should have assembled it near the location it was going in. Was a bit heavy to move around by myself. I put it in the shower since we have a large walk-in shower. My only issue is the crack on the top has now expanded. I may need to put it on outside or somewhere where there's not everyday water....

Story Behind the Art:
The elder in a village coordinates several villages/families to get carvings done. They disperse the raw wood bought for each order to each group and then collect the rough carvings for delivery. Most carvers are just family operations and the carving is done when they can. There are cycles based on the rice or other agricultural seasons where they can only get limited carving done. Over the years they have developed designs that have become popular.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

This item may display patches, due to the tools used in its creation. Any knotholes, cracks, natural inclusions or visible marks are results from the natural wood. This does not compromise the structural integrity of the piece, but is part of its design.

It is simple in design and elegant in reality. This silly sight requires that I write at least 50 characters. They do not seem to understand that extra words simply obscure the message.Read More
The bench came exactly as shown. Took maybe five minutes to put together. All the bolt holes-ony four of them-were perfectly aligned. The thing is heavy though! Ours had obviously been dropped or struck in transit as two of the bench corners got slightly crushed. One got hidden in the mortice and the other can be easily sanded down and oiled. When I mentioned this to customer service, I got a personal call from the company that makes the bench, and one from Overstock, with the offer of replacing the bench completely. I didn't want to see this otherwise beautiful piece get scrapped, and Overstock took care of me with a very generous gift card for the trouble. Very cool and great customer service. We love this bench and it is a character piece in our entryway that also gets a lot of practical use. Thanks guys!!!Read More
We are completely frustrated. This was the perfect looking bench for our garden. We opened the box, excited it arrived in just 3 days and we did free shipping. Every piece is covered in black mold. We are returning it but of course there are no more in stock to send us a new one. I am so upset!!Read More
I really like the color and thickness of the wood used to make this bench. However, I have two problems with it: 1. The screws used to attach the legs to the seat are visible from the ends of the bench. I feel there should have been wood plugs to cover the hardware. 2. One of the legs had some kind of 3 letter assembly note in permanent marker ON TOP OF THE LEG, so it's very visible. When I contacted Overstock to see about getting a replacement leg, they said that the item is made this way. I don't understand why assembly notes would be marked directly onto the item - how strange to vandalize a brand new piece of furniture. I'm hopeful these markings will fade - they appear to be fading gradually with some exposure to rain. Despite these two flaws, this is a decent bench for the money. I'm not sure I would buy it again knowing what I know now, though.Read More
I bought one bench to see what it was like and then ordered another one after I received the first one. The design is simple and modern. Depending on where it is used, it can have an asian or a minimalist modern feel. My only criticism is that I think it should have pegs to cover the bolts (even though they are recessed).Read More
Although the bench arrived moldly and damaged, Overstock.com was fantastic to work with. I paid *** total for the bench. When I reported the damage to Overstock, they refunded the amount paid and left it to the shipping company to assess the damage.Read More
Easy to assemble by myself. Definitely heavy and very solid once bolts are tightened. No problems. I'm using it inside and it goes very nicely with the rest of my furniture. The wood is in good condition, no missing chunks or splits or cracks.Read More
The bench was delivered in a reasonable time. It is very heavy, probably about 80 pounds, and difficult to hold pieces while installing hardware. The mounting holes on the sides did not come close to aligning with the holes drilled in the seat portion. The holes are large, about a half inch. So you can't just simply oversize the holes. Normal twist drill sizes stop at 1/2". Re-pack the hole thing (a pain), print return label and drag 80+ pounds back to UPS for return. UPS pickup costs extra. Customer service says they will ship another unit right out and not have to wait for the return. Five days later the unit is still 'Pending' and not shipped. I call 'customer service' to find out they don't know why!?!? Then the order is cancelled online with no notification. I call, again, and they tell me they are now out of stock and can't keep the order open even though they committed to sending ASAP. Customer service wants me to get up at 1:00 am, daily and check my email to see if the bench is back in stock. Not likely!Read More
Everything was above expectation except for the alignment of one of the bolts. Had my son not been there to redrill, it would have been a disaster. The product was too heavy for me to rebox and ship back without assistance. Assembly should have been easy - 4 bolts. Having to redrill made it more of a chore, but its great now.Read More
