Great Find!

Was hesitant to order furniture online but this looked like it would be the perfect match to my Ethan Allen bedroom set and it was!! It is quality well constructed and nicely finished. Plus the storage feature is great.
exceeded expectations
By Kristina from OMAHA,NE on 4/15/2015
It is just beautiful! Elegant and comfortable. it was easy to assemble, and more than I had hoped for. I have two hanging chairs on my patio that I needed to store when not in use, and they fit perfectly in the storage space, with room to spare. My spouse and I seem to gravitate to sit on it more than any other furniture on the patio, because it is so comfortable! A great product and especially for the price!
Easy and Beautiful

THis storage box is made out of sturdy material, and was so easy that my 8yr old daughter and I put it together in about 15 minutes! Only tool needed was a light drill.
Extremely satisfied!

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.
