Rated 4 out of 5 by getlostsandy Fits the bill nicely
This was easy to put together and it seems constructed very well. I was hoping the gray color would be a shade darker, but all in all, it's very nice. It's a versatile piece - sometimes I use it for extra table-top items, or if I need additional seating, it comes in handy for that as well.

I purchased the Black 36" bench. The black is not a jet black color. It is more of a black slate in color. The color is more of a charcoal with bluish/gray hues. It is not shiny but almost matte. It was really easy to put together. I put felt pads on the bottom as the ones on the bench are hard plastic. Four stars for the material. It is easily scratched and is more of a hard plastic look then wood but it does not devalue the quality of it. So it does not look "cheap". However I slid a plant in a ceramic pot on it and it did scratch easy. So I put felt on the bottom of the plant pot. I would buy this again and I think its priced ok. The charcoal color matches my VT black slate perfectly. I do not use it for sitting so I can not review the durability of that use. It fits the needs I was looking for so I am happy overall with this bench and would recommend it.

We are very pleased with our bench. It will be so much help for friends coming over since they can sit down to take their boots off, etc.

I purchased this as a gift - I ordered it on Monday and it arrived by Friday. It was well packed for shipping. My daughter was able to assemble it alone, but because she wasn't sure if some of the holes lined up or were at the correct angle, she swapped the legs around until it seemed correct. Could have just been her inexperience, or the act of assembling it alone. There are metal plugs in the screw holes so it went together nice and tight, and Bean's includes a tool for inserting the screws. The black color is soft and not harsh. It's a great item for a small apartment as a bench, occasional coffee table, extra seating at the kitchen table, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by withoutanickname Black is not true black
I purchased two of the small benches to use as side tables. I am extremely happy with the size and style, as I've had a difficult time finding side tables that are not too tall for our sofa.
However, I am disappointed in the color. The black is not a true black, and it does not match the other black furniture in that room. I would call it charcoal or dark gray.
Other than that, they are exactly what I was looking for. The size is right, the assembly was easy and they are sturdy and standing up to constant use.
