The bench came very well protected and packaged. We were very please with how sturdy the bench is. Lots of great character and was exactly what we were looking for. However, I have to note, the legs were not green, lime green, chartreuse, or any other color resembling green. They were cream. For our home and decor purpose, this was not a factor, but in someone elses home could have made or broke the purchase. We were looking forward to a pop of color, but instead are okay with it blending in. GREAT bench-would still highly recommend it!
I ordered this bench as it seemed like a good price for an accent piece I had been looking for. When I received it, I found that it was extremely water damaged on the top and it's completely unusable. This was my first purchase from Overstock and I was slightly freaking out when I received an automatic response to my email saying they would get back to me. I thought I would be stuck with this unusable bench and with this being an online site, it would be a problem to receive any help with it. I had included pictures with my email and received a phone call about a day and a half later with a representative, Laurie, already with the solution. She asked what my preference was, replace or refund, and I honestly loved the bench so much that I replaced. So glad I did! New bench was shipped and delivered very quickly and it is perfect! Beautiful and slightly vintage looking, it is very heavy and substantial. Customer service was top notch and professional! Nice to find in any company and especially an online company! The bench is more than I had hoped it would be and really a nice piece. If you judge a company,in part, on how problems are handled, your expectations will be exceeded 😊
I've bought a couple of things in a hurry from Overstock and realized 6 months on that they already look dated. This bench, however, is a classic, is incredibly sturdy and serves it's purpose as a drop spot in front of couch in an open plan house. I can highly recommend. (FYI: I bought might several years ago and the base color is an antiqued greenish yellow.)
I've been looking for weeks for the perfect bench, and finally found it in this one. However, when it arrived, it had some pretty substantial damage. When I removed the bubble wrap and paper from the top of the bench, there was a bunch of sticky stuff, and big swatches of black bumpy stuff that does not come off. Not sure what it is. So, will have to return it, but will have a new one sent, as I do love it apart from the damage. I don't see this mentioned in any other reviews, so hopefully it's a fluke and won't happen again! I'm giving it four stars because of how great the bench is, and would be five if it had arrived undamaged!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No, it's not yellow at all, it's green, but I knew that from other reviews, and I like green, so it's fine with me!
- How accurate was the sizing? Accurate
Usually when you order things for your house and you know you will have to live with them even if they are not right, it will make you nervous. This bench turned out great, perfect for where I put it. The people I dealt with were so very helpful. I received it in perfect shape. I had bought a table before I ordered the bench and the color was almost exactly the same, usually colors vary alot but this was a very good match.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? perfect

- How accurate was the sizing? great
This bench is very poorly constructed!! The legs and cross-piece are loose and the entire bench wobbles a lot. Very precarious to sit on. Doesn't appear to be actually broken but might as well be. Also, I was told by customer service that this bench was 60" long, but it's actually 43". I'm returning it.
Love this bench!! Nothing better than waiting for a delivery to find it completely assembled and looking fantastic! Great quality material, sturdy, and best of all looks better in person than in the picture. Warning legs are more green than yellow. Bought this for my foyer, but needed a temporary coffee table, and i might just keep it that way. This goes with anything and has so many functions. Really a wonderful buy, and so inexpensive. Highly recommended.
I read earlier reviews and looked forward to delivery of this bench. The legs are so loose they are almost falling off, and they are installed in such a way that they cannot be tightened. I received the bench today and have already requested a return label.
