Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have waited so long to order and I am glad I did. First of all I ordered Sunbrella fabric for my bench and it was a very good choice. I agree the seat is a bit awkward with the placement of slats, that being said it's a bench and not a recliner. I am also very happy in my choice of a storage bench (where else does one put the Fondue Pot) for items less used. Overall it is a comfortable bench and it looks great in my bay window in the kitchen for lounging with that second cup of coffee. My husband and I both fit, he is 250lbs and I am 125lbs, it is very sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good to excellent The storage benches I ordered are exactly what I wanted. I had them covered with fabric I provided. The personnel at Ballard Design was helpful, efficient and careful to understand what exactly I wanted. Coordination and customer service were the best. The only concern I have is that the support braces that actually form the cushioned seats are uncomfortable. They do not span horizontally across the entire cushion so I question whether they are up to wear over time. I can see where sagging might become a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect solution to tight spaces We purchased the "L" shaped Coventry benches and were very happy with the design, fabric and overall quality of the work. It's obvious quite a bit of work went into the upholstry. The storage space also holds more than any other benches I've seen. The only problem is depending on where you sit, you can feel the wooden framework, which makes it a bit uncomfortable for your bottom. We are not heavy people by any means, so it's not a weight issue. To make this a 5-star product, I would suggest adding more cushion or using a firmer one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice upholstery, with one major concern I am very pleased with the overall appearance of the bench. The upholstery was very well done. The bench seat does have hardwood frame construction, as stated, but it doesn't have a solid piece all the way across the bench seat. Upon sitting, you are able to feel the cross braces, thus making it uncomfortable for extended use. I have only had the bench for a couple weeks, and am having concerns on how the bench seat will hold up over time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from beautiful to look at however... Everyone who enters our kitchen loves the coventry bench... until they sit on it and the location of each wood slat is uncomfortably apparent. The fabric (I chose Sunbrella) is excellent and durable with my two young kids and all of their friends. It really is a cozy spot for us as a family to enjoy our meals, I just wish the seats were plusher.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the idea but the fabric is already pilling I have kids so I went with the sunbrella fabric and was very excited to see how it would hold up. I followed the directions sent on how to clean and within 2-3 times of cleaning the fabric is already pilling. With kids, I need to clean about once a week. I do love the look and how all the kids can sit on the bench but the wear isn't worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from wouldn't buy again I had to wait several months longer than advertised. When I received it, there was dirt/debris in the seat. Looks pretty, however sitting on it is uncomfortable, we can feel the crossbars on it when sitting, the cushion is not full enough.
