The bench is well made, suits almost any decor. Bought for extra seating when there are more than 6 at the table. The arched detail under it is lovely. Adds dimension to the room. We also bought 4 Saco side chairs in cherry and 2 armed Saco chairs, comfortable, well made and look beautiful in the room. We love that it's made in Maine by Maine craftsmen. It's a quality product. The company that delivered the furniture was first rate too. Will be buying a bed next.
