A good investment
Bench arrived quickly, very well packed. Real pillows used to protect legs and braces at both ends of package. Bench even more attractive than pictured, well made and solid. Ideal for versatile uses.. foyer bench, fireplace seating, window seat.. and will be used in many ways here. Comfy to sit on and firm thick cushion. Doesn't feel like it will compress or get lumpy with use, which is a good thing! My only critique is that although it was also wrapped in the plastic, when removed, the rug cushion was quite dusty with some grassy like debris and cobwebs at a few corners underneath and on leg. Vvacuumed with upholstery attachment and a little picking and now looks brand new.. really quite pretty!
