Story Behind the Art:
This product was created in Northwestern India. Once the British removed its armed forces from the region in the late 40s, a majority of the industries available for the local economy disappeared with them. People went back to the traditional crafts and furniture manufacturing that they had known for generations. Several hub cities of industry have flourished, creating numerous, sustainable, and stable jobs for the people of the surrounding villages, to augment the time in between harsh growing seasons.

What is Worldstock?

  • Beautiful, aged teak wood...

    The table arrived this week, and we assembled it immediately. Assemby was easy--If you pay attention to the little A and B sickers, all the bolt holes line up perfectly. It took about 10 minutes. Loved the "spanners" included--that's wrenches here in the USA. Now to the wood. The teak is definitely old. It has very well done patches where the wood was probably damaged or had fasteners or what-not. They add to the beauty. I used Clapham's Beeswax Polish on the wood before assembling. It developed a beautiful patina right away, and is now protected from accidents like glass rings, etc. I'm looking forward to having this as a coffee table and bench in my living area for many years--It will only develop more character as it continues to age. I felt good about purchasing this Worldstock piece because 60%-70% of the sale is returned to the artisans, small-lot producers living in remote areas of the world, and is shipped "carbon neutral."

  • Sturdy, well crafted, refined rustic

    The benches are very solid and assembled easily. The cast metal legs are substantial. These benches are up to heavy use and quite attractive.

  • Excellent quality

    I read the reviews for this bench and decided to purchase it. It was a great buy. It was very easy to put together and is "bomb proof". This piece if furniture will last. The teak wood is a beautiful warm color and looks great with the rustic industrial type legs. It is heavy and will support weight - no problem. I purchased it to use as a narrow cocktail table and I've received compliments on it. It is a great multifunctional piece. I could see it working as a bench, coffee table, or used at the end of a bed, too. Great buy!

  • Teak industrial bench

    This bench is awesome! Came really well wrapped and arrived with no chips/cracks to wood or other hardware. It survived a move to another state in the back of a moving truck even after being mailed to me. Very heavy peice--cool industrial look. I used mine under the tv as a media center--tv is not resting on it. A little bit pricey but worth it.

  • Super Cool Bench!!!!

    We purchased this bench for the guest bathroom in our loft which has very limited storage space and could not accomodate both a chair and a storage cabinet. Then we found this wood/steel industrial-looking bench and some rustic metal buckets with wooden handles (to store towels and misc) - what a cool solution this turned out to be! I absolutely ADORE this bench and it looks amazing in the room! Its extremely durable, came very well packaged and easy to assemble, has rubber floor protectors on the feet and is an absolutely georgous wood grain. Pictures do not do it justice! Nothing but compliments from EVERYONE on this very cool bench - I highly recommend FINDING A PLACE to put one - you'll be so glad you did!

  • Mrs

    I have decided to not return item even though I would have in a heart beat. It does suit the place where it is currently, I like that is long and narrow. It has so many imperfections that I am trying to overlook. I have had to resort in placing a decorative item on the area that these imperfections are more visible to me, they do not bother my husband. I plan to sand it down and paint with a dark color. The frame is very sturdy but, I also plan to spray paint it too. I do understand that it is reclaimed wood however, it has cracks, chipped areas and lots of plastered wood repair paste on it.

  • I Like It

    I bought this bench in November and I really like it. It was very easy to put together and it feels like a good, solid piece of furniture. We use it as a coffee table. I love the wood and metal contrast and we get alot of compliments on it. My only gripe is that the wood has started to split. It doesn't seem to be weakening at all, yet but it is still noticeable. I hope that it stays together because even though I bought in on sale, it was still more money than I would normally pay for a coffee table and like I said I really like it.

Questions & Answers

Guidelines
  • Why did you choose this product?

    Guidelines
    • I need this as a coffee table and as occasional seating when the whole family comes. I know that it is reclaimed wood, and prone to "checking" (which others described as splitting). But repeated conditioning and sealing with a beeswax based product should give a nice patina and may prevent excess checking. I'll let you know.

    Guidelines
    • Thank you for contacting us,outside edge to outside edge, the legs stand about 36" apart. Please let me know if you have any further question.

  • Is there a weight limit for this bench?

    Guidelines
    • Overstock does not weight test Items; however this type of chair typically holds 200 to 250 pounds.

  • how many inches between the bar at the bottom and the bench top?

    Guidelines
    • First, please note that these measurements will be approximate because the hand-made nature of these benches results in a small range of variation from one piece to the next. That said, on the bench I just measured, the distance between the top of the bar and the bottom of the top on the bench is approximately twelve inches (12"). The whole bench top, however is almost two inches (2") thick, so the distance from the top of the bars to the top of the bench is nearly fourteen inches (14").
