Great simple bench that stands up to outdoor abuse.
By: Thomas B., Homeowner (Philadelphia, PA)
Have owned this bench for a year now and it was a great match for our Kartell Bubble couches (though is a slightly different white). The bench has actually held up better than the couches, is basically bullet proof even though it lives outside through storms and snow. Great to look and and easy to own...definitely consider it if you like the look.

I've loved other Heller products and even have a large collection of Bellini Chairs that are bullet proof. I was looking for a long white outdoor coffee table to fit between two Bubble couches, and thought this bench might work. And it does! Though a little lighter white than the chairs, it's very well build, stylish and completes my set.
