What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

Just what we were looking for
By Helen from LUTHERVILLETIMONIUM,MD on 3/21/2015
I had been searching the web and furniture stores for an ottoman that could serve as both a coffee table and as a storage unit. Those that I found were either too long or too expensive. My perseverance paid off when I found this piece! Other reviewers are correct about its shorter width but it's just the right size for our space. The color is a very dark brown tending toward black. The seams are nicely finished, as are the corners. The legs were a little spotty but cleaned up fine with a damp paper towel. The hinges are very unobtrusive and hold up the lid securely when it's open. The trays are like the icing on the cake: a classy finishing touch. They are solid and stained a deep cherry. A clever design feature is their versatility: use them curved side up or down or store them inside if you want to use the ottoman for seating. I don't think it would be the best choice for a heavy adult but would be fine for others. No, it's not leather but a real bargain for all it offers.
Hall bench shoe storage
By Gabrielle from ROCKVILLE,MD on 3/21/2015
Great storage bench made from wood not particle board. Deep rich color as shown and not too terribly red. Shelves are tall enough for tennis shoes but not hiking boots with ankle support or similar ahoes with higher heels. Only issue I had was putting it together since the back is tricky to fit in the grooves while holding the sides. This is much easier accomplished with two sets of hands as recommended in the directions. Also the small wrench provided has to be used for the screws and in some places space is tight for turning and was somewhat difficult to tighten well.Would definitely recommend to others despite these things.

Benched for the Season: Find the Perfect Outdoor Bench

When it comes to outdoor benches, the word "multi-tasking" comes to mind. Today's savvy consumer/home stylist/mom/executive/(add your many roles here) demands more than just a bench to drag outside when the weather's warm. The latest in outdoor benches not only offer myriad style options, but also they'll work hard for you. Read on to learn about trends, tips, and tasks related to this type of outdoor seating ...

In a Material World

First, consider what the bench is made of, and what will work best in your climate. According to Hayneedle senior buyer James Goddard, wood still reigns supreme, but it's best for seasonal use and should be treated yearly with linseed oil or other such protectants to keep it in good shape. The best woods for weathering the elements include cedar, cypress, shorea, acacia and teak. These wood types are best at resisting rot and insects, and all of them age well.

For rugged durability and outdoor benches you can leave outside in any weather, concrete and stone are, of course, lifetime pieces perfect for a permanent spot in your outside space. Many are engravable.

Also consider recycled plastic. Not only is it a green, mindful choice, but you wouldn't believe how realistic today's plastic designs look. Whether resin wicker or cedar-lookalike Adirondack benches, recycled plastic is maintenance-free. Just hose it off season after season.

Trending: Task Masters and Tradition

Goddard says that dual-purpose, outdoor storage benches and deck boxes are super popular as well as stylish. Wood benches with flip-up tops are perfect for storing and protecting brightly colored cushions so hot right now, plus bocce balls, badminton, or books ... whatever your summer fancy. These multi-taskers are great solutions for small outdoor spaces, too.

Another trend is outdoor benches made for specific locations, such as tree benches, which – you guessed it – surround the base of a tree, or firepit benches curved or straight to match the latest designs in firepit sets.

By far the most popular, according to Goddard, remain traditional wood benches. Warm, comfortable, and often with a hint of Secret Garden ambience, a well-made wooden bench always invites you to take a seat.
