Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NewYorkerXO Perfect size.
I love this bench for the hallway. It's the perfect size to throw my work bag on when I get home or sit and throw on shoes or just pile stuff on that I need by the door to take with me - dry clean, etc. It works. I ordered a cushion to be made for the top of it b/c it's more comfy and looks better. Custom Cushions is where I got it from and I ordered it in the Ginko green, 37"x13". I originally tried to order 37"x12" and it was too small and had to order a second one that properly fits, so if you order a cushion make sure the size is 37"x13". Anyway, I did have to sand down parts of the side pieces so it would snap into place while putting it together. There was a moment I wasn't sure it would work but then finally it did. The bench is sturdy. Great size. Functional.

I bought this bench because I needed a narrow bench to fit a specific space. Since this bench fit all the parameters, I bought it. Delivery was fast. It was easy to put together. The quality is just average...you might find the same quality at Ikea. However, it seems sturdy enough...some other reviews made me a little wary...but unless you're regularly having really large people using it, it should be fine. Might not be the best bench for the money, but I just needed something that fit certain measurements and sometimes it's hard to find just the right thing. I'm happy with my purchase and don't mind the price because it worked.

I bought two of these benches; an ivory one to go by the front door, and a black one to go in our mud room. Both areas have limited space, and I was looking for something that was simple and not too expensive. I am very happy with these benches. They were fairly easy to assemble, and are sturdy. We have had them for a couple of months now without problems.
My only (tiny) concern is that some of the little pieces that cover the screw holes can fall out with moving the bench. This could be easily fixed with some glue, but I haven't even bothered to do that. Otherwise they are finished very nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hales Perfect bench for a narrow entryway
I recently purchased the Mission Bench for my entryway which is no more than a glorified hallway. I needed a bench that was large enough for guests to sit on to put on their shoes, but narrow enough to maintain the flow of the hallway. I really lucked out finding the Mission Bench. I met all of my needs, was super easy to assemble, and is quite sturdy. I would definatley recomend this bench to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ECJJC Very nice - good bang for the buck. It was simple to put together and is just what I was looking for. I am using it as a coffee table - I wanted a table but it could not be real deep so at 13.5 inches, this is perfect!
Thanks for a great product - would definitely recommend to my friends.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NSVVA Great value for the price
The bench arrived quickly and we're very pleased with the finish and style. It was a bit difficult to assemble since one of the pegs where the side legs fit was slightly off and we had to sand it before it would slide into place. Otherwise the assembly would have been extremely easy and quick. Exactly what we were looking for, and overall pleased with the purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MamaBear0710 just what we were looking for
We needed a slim bench for our entryway and the dimensions of this were perfect. Chestnut color complements the color and style of other mission furniture we have in our living room. Super quick assembly and seems fairly sturdy. Stain isn't applied evenly in some spots, but because this bench is tucked against a wall (or hiding behind the open front door) it's not noticable.

I needed a bench in the entry so you could sit and put on your shoes and also a bench at the dining room table to accommodate more guests--this bench fit both perfectly. I was looking for something with a wider base than the top and this bench has it. It is relatively light weight so moving it from entrance to dining room is no problem.
