Design - 5 stars, assembly - 3
I've always loved the design of this table and finally found an excuse to buy one. The design is classic and beautifully made. You buy this piece if you think of furniture as art.
My only issue is with the assembly. The four legs were easy - the screw holes properly aligned and tight. That part took 15 minutes only because I had to find the tools. But there are two bridge pieces that have to be hammered in, and that's a problem. The piece itself is drilled, but the part of the bench it goes on isn't. I'm not very strong, so hammering into had wood is not my number one choice, but worse, it wasn't till I stood the piece up that I realized I hadn't aligned the pieces very well. If they had supplied four tiny screws - with four properly aligned holes - it would have made all the difference, and this would be a 5 star review.

Looks playful...not totally functional.
You should have a really good context for this bench to make sense. Otherwise, it looks like you picked it up from a kindergarten garage sale. Slat top is also a little annoying if you're like me and put your keys aside you while you tie your shoes. They will fall through the bench to the ground.

Clean lines, practical and good quality bench
I was looking for something that would look good with the furniture I already have. I looked for clean lines and light wood. I love the designs with bend wood and plywood. this bench is designed very well, feels and looks sturdy. I love it!
