I researched the price for this bench on several other websites, and Overstocks was the lowest price. Being my first purchase from them, I received free shipping, which was a great bonus. The bench is easy to assemble, is a good size and decent quality for the price. It looks great in our foyer. Like some other reviews mentioned, I did receive one damaged piece, but when I called the 800 number, the customer service representative was very courteous and new a piece was sent out free of charge. I received the new piece within 5 days. I am very pleased with ordering from Overstocks and the quality of the Landa black bench.
