Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just beautiful The Antoinette Bench is exactly want I was looking for. It fits perfectly at the foot of my bed and looks really beautiful. It was also very easy to put together and very well made. I'm very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Accent Bench! Ordered in whitewash to place at the foot of a queen bed. It looked so versatile, I moved this piece all around the house and it worked just about everywhere. It compliments many different finishes; equally at home with Country French or Scandinavian pieces, dark antiques, even summer wicker. Perfect under a Palladian window on the main staircase landing, not too bulky in a corridor or as an accent piece in the center hall to hold guests' handbags. I like the cane work exposed, but a custom seat cushion or throw pillows would tie it into any decorating scheme. For a bedroom, a mohair throw over one arm and a small accent pillow were all I needed. I assembled it quickly and easily. Many compliments from houseguests, Nicely made, incredibly well packed for safe shipping. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bench but... Let me start by saying the bench is lovely, with gorgeous details, and was simple to assemble. I only gave it 4 stars because of the color. I ordered the gray wash, but the color of the bench I received would be better described as an antiqued olive drab. There is nothing gray about it. I thought about returning it for another color, but finally decided to keep it and repaint it. From the reviews the other colors are as pictured, but be aware that if you're looking for a gray bench, this one isn't gray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice bench I really like my new bench. It wasn't that difficult to assemble myself and it looks very nice in my bedroom. Happy with my decision to purchase it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely bench....but fragile. I wanted an attractive bench for the foot of my bed and this is perfect. Lovely and light, but I would not want to place it where it would be used for seating. The cane weave is imperfect in one spot, but it is not readily visible and should wear alright with minimum use. I decorate my bench with pillows and a light throw...it is perfect for my needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful details on this bench This bench is very graceful and pretty. However, I ordered the finish that was called gray but in person I feel it has a very green tone to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish! I've been eying this bench for a long time. When they came out with the Grey Wash finish I knew I had 'to have it'. It's a truly beautiful piece. The only disappointment I had was with putting it together. It came in three pieces, which should have been a piece of cake to put together. Sadly the construction was warped, so It took much longer to fit together and finish. Some extra drill holes and it was finally done. Now I'm loving it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good quality for price we needed a bench for the foot of our bed. this was a perfect choice. well made and a good price

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very versatile I have now purchased two of these benches. One is being used in front of our living room window and the other is at the foot of a bed. They are beautiful accent pieces but I do not think you can really use them for seating. The cane work is pretty delicate and it does not appear it can handle much weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile little bench I got this bench for the landing at the top of my stairs ... but then discovered two other spots in my house I could use it too. Good quality, quick to assemble and perfect for those small hard-to-figure-out areas that need a small piece of furniture. Only problem I had: my bench came without its hardware!! Nowhere to be found in the package. One quick call to Ballard and the hardware arrived in three days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous bench! This bench is beautiful and looks great no matter where I move it in the house. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I'm afraid to let people sit on it since it doesn't feel like it could hold much (human) weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We love the bench because of it's size The size of this bench is perfect. Looks great under a big mirror against the wall. The detailing makes it very pretty. Quality for price is good not great. Ballard's service is excellent and fast. We had to exchange for a different color finish to go with the room. They made it easy and inexpensive to return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like the bench, hate the assembly I received my Antoinette Bench today and was very excited. To my disappointment however, upon delivery, I realized that it was something that I was going to have to put together. I really HATE putting stuff together. Anyway, I didn't have the help of another person, so it wasn't easy, but I got it finally set up ... sort of. I never did get it perfectly aligned, one of the dowels refuses to line up with the hole. One bolt has already fallen out. I am sure that some part of this was my own ineptitude, but I am not happy with its current state. Hopefully I can have someone look at it for me and fix what I can't seem to get right. With all that said, it is a very attractive piece and it is exactly what I wanted for an awkward spot in my living room. Color and style are exactly as is represented on the website and the catalog. If I can fix the shoddy assembly, I'll be happy with it. *Note: I am sure it said "assembly required" somewhere on the page for this item, but I just didn't see it or it didn't register in my mind when I ordered it.
