What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

Beautiful Bench
By Awilda from OMAHA,NE on 5/22/2015
Our Caravan Valencia bench arrived promptly. My husband put it together with no problems, however when I arrived home I realized that tag, paperwork & box all stated "Steel Frame" i was very surprised as I was sure I had read that it had an "Aluminum Frame". Which was why I had ordered it. I called Hayneedle & they called the manufacturer to check. It turns out that the description was WRONG. So if you want Aluminum don't purchase this bench. But if steel frame is o.k. with you, go ahead and get it as it is really beautiful & two adults fit on it comfortably.

Put together easily, sturdy for the average person, looks very nice, just as advertised. Doesn't glide too much, only a few inches. Overall I would recommend this for the price. Fits my needs perfect!

I absolutely love it in every way! It is beautiful, looks fantastic in my home, and the price could not have been better!
Not bad at all...

I thought they would be a bit more sturdy but for the use, they are great. Easy to put together, took about 10 minutes. I have one specifically for the pillows and one for games and fire pit accessories.
Great product,

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.
