What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

Looks Beautiful!
By Lisa from EL PASO,TX on 8/15/2014
I wanted to put this together on my own (even though the instructions state 2 people) and I broke several small pieces. They only include the exact number of assembly pieces, so be very careful not to break or lose any. However, I contacted Jennifer Pajor-Smith (EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE) who went out of her way to obtain the one set of replacement pieces I needed from the manufacturer at no cost! Once assembled it looks absolutely beautiful. Have been asked by several family and friends where we purchased it and told them Hayneedle. Thank you!
Love the Deck Box.
By Peggy L from SACRAMENTO,CA on 8/14/2014
It was easy to put together for a 73 year old lady. Looks like it will be good in bad weather. Very happy with this.
Nice, Solid, Handsome Outdoor Deck Box
By Walter from Los Angeles, CA on 8/14/2014
I am very pleased with my Suncast Resin Wicker Deck Box. I almost did not purchased this particular deck box because of a negative review that I read (after I just ordering it online) and thought about returning it once it arrived. So I spoke with customer service to a gentleman who was very nice and interested in my concerns, and he expressed that he could not stop the order at that point. He suggested that I just put it together on arrival and see what I thought about. He also told me that returning the deck box was no problem at all. Well once I put it together the thought of returning was out the question. The hard plastic looked great with the wicker relief design in it and the color was handsome and sharp! However there are three design problems with the deck box which are: 1) The stabilization bar that they tell you to attach underneath the front lid of box is designed wrong and servers no purpose (if it does have a purpose I can't find it) all the bar does is cause the lid of the deck box to begin to wrap in the hot sun and the lid does not close well and continues to stay slightly open day and night. I removed the bar and the lid closes beautiful and stays secure in all weather conditions. Problem solved! 2) Secondly the locking of the lid to the box is a joke; anyone child could pry the plastic lid from the base and the two holes on the front of the box for a pad lock to go through are too far away to connect properly. 3) Thirdly the plastic straps that hold the box lid up when open, is a very poor design and contines to pop out at all times. But the lid is very light and if you are not rough when putting back the box lid, the straps do not pop off. Having spoken about these three design problems, I still feel it's a great strong sturdy deck box for the money and its large inside storage area works perfectly of all my deck pillows! And it looks great! I hoping the beautiful color and shape of the Resin Wicker Deck Box holds up in hot summers over the years.
Assembly takes time but sturdy for price
By Tim from WEST LINN,OR on 8/13/2014
A great, inexpensive piece to organize shoes, keys, purses and light jackets at entry door ....even sufficient height to slip pairs under bench in front for quick access. We ordered the matching cushion which was spendy but is well made, fits perfectly and has thick water resistant fabric which was worth not shopping around or sewing our own. Came quickly with free shipping, and although it took hubby several hours to assemble he said it wasn't too difficult. Only drawback is the top is not completely finished and is visible if placed in a two story foyer like ours.
Perfect fit
By Carrie from BROOKFIELD,WI on 8/12/2014
I bought this to fit in a particular spot at my garage entry. It fits perfectly there and looks great. It took about 5 minutes to assemble.

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.
