Dorchester 3-Seat Bench is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 271.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bench Beautiful, high quality bench. The larger size is the perfect scale for the end of a king-sized bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bench It’s versatile, bought as extra seating at the dinner table or to hold guests luggage in our spare bedroom. It is a great looking piece of furniture and fits well with the decor of the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bench, great value This bench is attractive and well made. It came assembled (in a very large box), was in perfect condition, and arrived very fast. It could go with many different styles of decor--traditional, country, transitional. Note, the finish on my bench isn't very "worn," but I actually prefer that, as it will get plenty worn in my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bench Great value for quality. My only comment would be that if your are in need of a "GRAY" bench - the gray has a definite GREEN undertone - which worked well for me, but might not for someone looking for a more neutral gray.
