Amherst Bench
By Terry from Katy,TX on 6/28/2015
Great quality, great style, great service and easy to put together. Took me about 30 minutes. Am a 62 year old woman and did it by myself - and do not consider myself handy.
Utilitarian Looking Bench
By Molly from Holiday, FL on 6/28/2015
I just got mine and Boyfriend assembled it for me. He said there is exactly enough hardware so don't misplace any. No spares included at all. One screw hole wasn't punched through, he had to drill it out. And he used his own screws for the bottom support struts that meet in the middle. He said those included didn't seem strong or long enough. (just his opinion). It went together easily enough. Now that I can actually see it, it's NOT an attractive bench. It's very plain and it doesn't look expensive at all. But, both metal and wood benches have problems I don't want to deal with. This one won't get too hot on my backside in the Florida sun like metal would, and I won't have to paint/seal it every year like I would with wood. Bugs won't be able to hide on it either, that's a big consideration. I believe it's heavy enough that the wind won't take it. It had a long black streak along the top but I was able to scrub it off. It's certainly not a "looker" but it's good enough for my back yard. Just wish it came in 4' or 5' lengths. This bench is really, really long.... six feet of skinny white plastic. It's the warranty that convinced me to buy it. We'll see if it really lasts 20 years outside in Florida. If so, it's worth the price and then some! Shipping was prompt (3 days) and FREE. I can recommend it to those who want a maintenance free, sorta ugly bench that will last forever.
Love it!

Bought this for my front porch. It took a little longer to assemble but looks terrific and glides nicely.
looks just like the picture!
By Melissa from Huntingdon,TN on 6/28/2015
looks just like the picture although there were some dirt stains when I took it out of the box. I decided to keep because of the hassle of returning it
Love This Bench!
By Donald from SaintLouis,MO on 6/28/2015
My husband put the legs on the bench today, and had no problems. The bench sits level and seems very sturdy to sit on. It is a good height for putting on shoes or as a place to sit in our extra bedroom. The bench seems well-made and the color is a rich, dark brown, just as the picture shows.

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.
