Intrigue Salon from Marietta, GA– Verified Buyer
I feel it could be more solid across the surface and over time it maybe a issue. It has areas where it gives a little when you sit on it. I love the size and design which makes the bench a four star!

We purchased 8 of these benches for an art gallery space in a high school. The benches are attractive and fit the aesthetics of the space perfectly which was the main reason we purchased them. However, after a few months in the space several of them appear to be sagging in the middle. If this gets worse the benches will not look good at all. I have serious concerns for their long lasting quality.
