First off, I love the way the bench looks and the funky style. Unfortunately, it broke almost immediately when a friend set a bag with a computer and some books on it. The legs slid out from under the bench. As the other review mentioned, we could see that the legs were attached only by 2 short screws and 2 finishing nails. We got wood screws to hold everything together. Within a month, it broke again under my weight (125 lbs). This time the wood actually broke on the bench. The wood is too soft and the angle of the legs too weak to hold weight. DO NOT BUY!
I was very pleasantly surprised by this bench. After reading the other contrasting reviews, I was hesitant to purchse it but decided to go for it...and I'm very glad I did. The box arrived in pristine condition and the bench was already assembled for me. It was actually quite a bit sturdier and had a little more detail to it than I expected. For the price, I think it is a home run.
This bench looks just like the picture - appears dark yet rich in color (almost like a blend of mahogany and walnut coloring). Very sturdy and it is actually comfortable to sit on (as long as you sit on either site of the center hump). I'm glad I strayed away from the traditional bench this time!
I love this item! The bench is made of solid wood and is well constructed. There was no assembly required which was great! I am using this item as a piano bench which can comfortable seat both my young kids without fighting for a spot at the piano! A bonus is that it slides right under the piano for easy storage and access. I was a little surprised how long the bench was as i expected it to be a little shorter, but it still works well. Love it!
The bench is exactly as advertised. I love that it came assembled. It's perfect for outside my condo door, and I've had many compliments on it. I don't think it would hold a really heavy person, but it's not fragile. I love it!

I wanted something different in the hall besides the typical half round table. I looked everywhere. Somehow I stumbled upon this unique bench on O.co website and fell in love! Now all our friends ask where we got it from and constantly tell us how unique the bench is. Perfect for us!

this bench is shipped in one piece, and the legs are hinged to fold under. You simply open the legs outward to set it up. Because they are angled slightly out, gravity keeps them firmly in place. The wavy shape makes this bench the design focus of my entry way, and is comfortable to sit on. Great value.

I am very pleased with the wavy bench. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is not quite as polished as it appears online. But it is, none the less, beautiful and well made. It came well packaged and there is no assembly at all.
First off, I love the way the bench looks. It was very true to the pictures, and I was really happy with the look and the easy set-up. Unfortunately, it broke almost immediately. We set it up per the easy instructions, and I sat down on the right side with no problems. But when I got up and my husband sat on the left side...kabloom. It did not even attempt to hold his weight (which is only 165 lbs)...the legs just slid out from underneath and snapped off, taking some of the wood from the bench seat with it. It can not be easily fixed as the wood itself actually broke. When it broke, you can see that the leg was attached only by 2 short screws and 2 finishing nails. Seeing that, we weren't surprised that it broke. I may try to replace this with another of the same, since it looks fantastic, and nobody else who has posted comments here has had this problem. However, I am nervous about it holding up any weight.
I am quite impressed with this bench. The quality is excellent. It is solid wood and very sturdy. It's really cute and unique, in my opinion. I am using this bench in my foyer, but I can envision many other places in my house where I could also use it. If you are looking for a good quality piece of furniture that not everyone else will have, this is it.
This bench is exactly what I was looking for. It's made of good quality wood and works well in a bathroom that has lots of moisture. It was super easy to assemble since you only have to unfold the legs and place the hook over the buttom. The look of the bench is interesting and it's even comfortable for 2 people to sit on.
This bench is a great addition. I use it as extra seating by my office window and bring it our for a dining bench when I have guests over for dinner or game night. It's very stylish and confortable. It came preassembled and the legs fold for easy moving/storage if needed.
I love this wavy bench! I'm converting a formal dining room in my newly purchased home into an art gallery to show off a large, kind of wavy, painting I made and this bench works perfectly with it. (I am a professional artist by trade.) I like this bench because it's simple, sturdy, and unusual. It was easy to set up and is actually quite comfortable for seating - compared to a flat hard bench. I also think it could be easily modified to serve as a coffee table with a piece of sturdy glass over the top, though some shimming might be necessary on the ends to raise them up to the height of the middle hump. A good purchase and a great fit for me!
Bought this bench to be extra seating in my living room. if was beautiful out of the box, fit perfectly under the couch table. For more than a year, it was just there but then we actually needed to use it and it went from beautiful to wobbly to in pieces quickly. Nope, no kids were playing on it, just average size adults sitting, talking and enjoying themselves. Glad it broke under me and not my guests. A couple of years later, I'm still searching for the perfect replacement, I can trust.
