Just What I Hope For!
By Cindy L from Bloomington, IN on 7/24/2015
I'm actually using this as a decorative touch in a bedroom with stained glass windows and ferns and it is perfect. Was easy to put together and feels a lot sturdier than some furniture I've assembled recently. Definitely worth the money!
Perfect outdoor bench
By Alice from SanAntonio, TX on 7/24/2015
Not only did I receive this item about 4 days earlier than expected, but it is exactly what I wanted & looks great in my backyard garden! I love the bench & the service I received & would definitely do business w/Hayneedle again. Thank you Hayneedle!
Garaden bench

Good product for the money, easy assembly, however, the cheap wrench is worthless to use. Used my own. Looks very nice in my yard.
Perfect accessory!
By Alejandra from Saugus, CA on 7/24/2015
I love this bench. It goes perfect in front of my king size bed. The color is exactly as shown in the picture. It's sturdy and I see this lasting for years to come! I gave it four stars because if I could change one thing, I would make the seat a little more cushiony.
Exactly As Pictured

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.
