This bench is well made and well designed with good finish options. It came in the perfect size for our back hall. It is very comfortable to sit on when putting on boots. We are very pleased and would definitely recommend this bench.

Rated 5 out of 5áby VTchoosyshopper Perfect Fit
We needed a small, sturdy bench for putting our shoes on by the door. This bench is perfect and does not take up a lot of space. It is very sturdy and can hold up to 4 adult pairs of shoes on the shelf below the seating. Our grandchildren can also fit their smaller shoes on the floor beneath the shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RNRm This little bench fits our need!
We needed a small bench near our front door so that our guests could remove their shoes and put them back on comfortably. We had only a small space and so could not use a regular bench. This little bench works wonderfully! It is sturdily built and should be able to hold most people. The only drawback to the size of this bench is the fact that no commonly-sized cushions fit it and a custom-made cushion costs ~2/3s the price of the bench.

Rated 5 out of 5áby dylan21 Quality & Style
I bought the small light-mission(26L x 14W x 18H), and it is a quality USA hardwood(NY) bench. I would buy again. As previously noted it would be helpful to have a 2nd person help assemble. This is just because it is heavy hardwood, and the screws can be a little hard to completely tighten; but one person can do it just fine, and there are only 8 screws. Once assembled it is very sturdy and looks great.

This bench's simple style will work with many types of dÚcor. It is solid and well-made, and my husband said it was easy to assemble. Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LLTexas Well made in the US of Hardwood
This table/bench is extremely well-made of actual hardwood in the US. My only complaint is it takes a lot of muscle to put the screws in while assembling. My electric screwdriver was unable to accomplish this task. However after thinking about it I realized the reason the screws are so hard to put in is because it is made of actual hardwood.

These arrived and required some assembly. My husband complimented how well made the benches were and how all the screws actually fit. The color matches our other furniture perfectly.
Top quality hardwood made to last. LL Bean quality 100%.

We purchased this bench for a TV and are extremely pleased with it. The TV is on top and the cable box and sound bar are on the shelf. It was simple to put together (the pre-drilled holes all lined up perfectly) and it has a solid look and feel to it.

áby alaskamaine Great Bench / Poor Execution
This is a very sturdy bench and could be a very nice piece of furniture, however there is a design flaw. When the bottom shelf is attached to the cross braces between the legs, and the screws are tightened, the cross braces rotate exposing unstained wood. The reason is the legs are at the slight angle but the ends of the bottom shelf are not cut at the same angle, so when you tighten the screws the cross brace rotates to match the bottom shelf.
I was in Bean a few weeks after purchasing the bench and noticed that all of the assembled benches on the showroom floor had the same problem. Minor problem but not what I have come to expect out of Beans.

Rated 4 out of 5áby SFhiker Requires strong hands or a drill
This piece is very sturdy. I'm using mine as a smell table under a window; it can easily support a heavy plant. The simple design fits with many types of furniture.
It can definitely be assembled by one person, however, it wasn't easy. Some of the pre-drilled holes were very shallow and I got a blister forcing the long screws into the wood.
