The bench build time was as expected, pick up was easy, the bench looks awesome and is very sturdy. We're looking forward to using it with our new dining set (which was a separate order, different furniture set, later delivery date). No complaints here!
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.
