Story Behind the Art
Khun Na and her husband started out sourcing products for customers. Over the years they have seen many designs made by artisans and have been presented with sketches from many clients. They have to interpret the requested design so that it can be fashioned in a manner that the wood workers can make consistently and that is pleasing to the client from their original idea. They try to adapt existing wood workers designs to fit the clients' desires first, as that is what the wood workers know best. They find beauty in the natural inclusions and try to use them as often as possible. These designs grow from trends and ideas that they have seen over the years.
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.

have had the bench for over a year. it looks fantastic but it is not stable The bench is near our front door, used for sitting to take off/on shoes. When bending over the tie the shoes the bench almost falls over and it wobbles from side to side looks great but lacking stabilityRead More

Very beautiful and just what I was looking for. The benches were quite warped and had to be shimmed but otherwise satisfied.Read More
This goes perfectly with my smaller sized custom furniture. PERFECT FOR A COCKTAIL TABLE and perfect to eat from or even put your feet up. Having a "bench style' allows one to see the carpet or floor underneath which expands the look of the room. Never wanted a cocktail table before until this.....no regrets. THE PRICING WAS UNBELIEVABLE ON OVERSTOCK.....SO BEAUTIFUL....everyone loves it!Read More
beautiful wood bench we are using it in an art galley very sturdyRead More
I saw a similar bench used as a coffee table in a small photo in an article about a mommy-blogger. I contacted the reporter and the mommy blogger who said the table was about 5 years ago and from a regional home furnishing store. So I was on the hunt! Finally after a while this turned up and looks almost identical to the one in the article. I LOVE IT. It does have a medium sized crack in it and a couple of small knots but it is a slab of wood so I don't mind. It is very very heavy but needs only four screws to assemble. You will also need a bolt screwdriver (preferably ratcheting) because where the screws go is recessed, and a normal wrench will not do the job. That is a very minor thing, there are only four screws and it is solid. The color is beautiful--I was a little worried about the potential variation but it does look much like the photo. I believe when I ordered there were TWO versions here on overstock so double check that's the color you want. On the long side, it is flat on one side and slightly curved on the other, as displayed in the photo. It is gorgeous. Plus between the free shipping and the club O discount this was quite a good value!Read More
This is the favorite item I've ordered so far from Overstock. I use it as a coffee table, as I have a small living room, sits in front of the sofa perfectly and gives the whole room warmth. It is hardwood, and I don't have to worry about water rings. Very heavy and solid. Mine has a crack on one end (not wide), which gives it character. The slightly curved side faces my sofa. Perfect height. Color in picture is very accurate. The craftsmanship is excellent, and it has a nice smooth finish. If you want to go "organic," this is the way to go. I don't need to put anything on top of the coffee table like candles or vases. It speaks for itself. By the way, you need a socket wrench to screw in the four bolts. Got a multipurpose one for about $10 that I just chuck into my toolbox.Read More
We bought the bench as a gift and I was pleasantly surprised and pleased that the quality is up to my expectation. After a quick assembly from my husband, we were admiring the beauty of the bench. It was very sturdy given that it did weight about 80 lbs. This was my first purchase with Overstock.com and looking forward to future purchases as satisfying as this one.Read More
