Good Product

Don from Antigonish, NS

We had been looking for a chair like this, for a particular part of our house, for some time , without success. The style was either unavailable or far too expensive. We ordered this item with some trepidation was it going to be as pictured We are pleased to say it is.. The wood used is substantial and the finish quire nice. We use it to separate a study area from a living room. It would also be useful in an entryway.
The only difficulty I had was with assembly. The instructions consist of a line drawings and arrows, which are a little hard to read. Assembly also calls for the insertion of bolts into barrel nuts at some odd angles. Be prepared to have sore fingers from extensive use of an Allen wrench. The result is a solid piece of furniture.

I am decorating my new house and I LOVE this bench! It is in my entryway and looks beautiful!! It is darker than I thought it would be which made me happy since my end tables and coffee table are darker wood. I have received many compliments and would recommend this bench to all my friends.

Some Work required

Don from Antigonish, NS– Verified Buyer

The end result is fine. This bench, however, is very difficult to assemble. First, the instructions are, to put it charitably, challenging; they consist of poorly executed line drawings, that are hard to decipher and match with the parts. One is required to use an allen wrench at odd angles on elusive connections. A result was that several of the joints are scratched from the effort.. In addition some of the materials are not of the best quality, in particular the bolt hole covers.
