Just got the bench and gave it a thorough inspection. Hardwood throughout, tight joints, quality hand finish, sturdy hardware. It weighs a good thirty five pounds, which is Not light weight for a piece this size, unless you are used to rosewood, ebony or teak (or MDF...sigh). Calling it a bench is a bit of a misnomer, really. It is an altar-shaped low cabinet, and would work great as an entertainment center (using RF remotes). Perfect as a small console to back up to a low sofa in a great room, or as a foyer console, or use it for storage in a yoga dogo, spa or studio. The back is plain, but smooth and stained to match, so could be used as a coffee table, too. Versatile, pretty piece and very well crafted. Shipment was quick, bench was packed nicely. Since it was sealed up for transport from overseas right after being built, the finish has not been able to dry fully. Give it a light rub down with a soft cloth and a tiny bit of furniture polish or soft beeswax; the finish will smudge your hands a bit otherwise. Natural/traditional stain finishes can take months to "cure", another sign of quality.

damaged goods
 from Upstate New York,  Apr 22, 2013

This bench is as beautiful as it looks online. Though it seemed to be packaged adequately, the bench arrived damaged (beyond repair). Overstock was great about shipping out a replacement right away, but the second one arrived damaged in a similar fashion. The rounded "arms" pull out from the slim board they're attached to, splintering the wood and making it impossible to reattach. Too bad. This is a nice looking piece, but it obviously doesn't ship well.

Mali Wood Bench (Thailand)
 from Los Angeles, CA,  Sep 12, 2012

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.

  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality far exceeds the price... This is something that I would have picked up in the markets of Chang Mai Thailand....and I was lucky enough to get it from you on line... It is a well build piece and fit perfectly in my bathroom as a window seat....and with storage for towels, etc...

an "OK" product
 from New York,  Jun 12, 2012

This bench came in a large box and no assembly is required. However, the material does not appear to be sturdy (very light).
