I read all the reviews before deciding I wanted to get the Harper grey linen banquette. Since we have no stores within 2 hours, I first considered purchasing online during the free shipping/25% off furniture promotion, but with the $80 shipping surcharge, I decided to see if a store could get it for me and I could pick up so no shipping charges. I spoke with a very helpful woman at the Ft Meyers store who was happy to raincheck and order the piece for me so that if it arrived after the promotion, I could still get the 25% off. It took about 3-4 weeks to arrive in store. Since it's a fair drive, we planned a girls World Market shopping day since it was before Christmas. Finally got the piece home and put together. The grey linen has a nice mixture of modern and classic feel. Love that it's dark enough to hide spills, but still plan to scotch guard the heck out of it before using since we have kids. I plan to use this in the eat-in kitchen area, so it will get LOTS of use. As other reviewers mentioned, it does sit a little low. I compared the seat height to one of my pottery barn dining chairs and they actually sit at about the same height at the front of the banquette. The seat of the banquette slopes back which I'm guessing ends up making it feel like it's sitting ever so slightly lower than the chair. I am 5'6" for reference. It's not so low that it's a problem for me, especially since it will be used for informal eating and enjoying cups of coffee in my kitchen. The seat feels quite firm right now, so if it gets squishier with time, I may feel the need to put some sort of risers under the legs to make it sit a little higher. Overall, it's quite comfortable and I am very pleased with the piece and the service I received in assisting me with ordering from the Ft. Myers store. I would definitely recommend it to others as a very affordable banquette that looks high-end.
Not as sturdy as I thought. It makes me nervous for someone heavy to seat on it. Nice fabric, cushion is firm but only time will tell.
This item was shipped immediately and arrived as pictured. The shipping company they use gives you a 4 hour window and it must be delivered during the week. It was very easy to assemble the legs. It seats 3 comfortably. It is deeper than I expected, but that is not a problem. It does sit a little low for 30 1/4 inch dining table we have, but we don't mind that. Any higher of a table might be a problem. The material seems durable and the color should hide any small spills that don't come out. Overall I think this piece is beautiful and hardy. I hope it wears well. I didn't think it was much of a bargain, it was a splurge for me. My husband attempted to nap on it, but I gave him the ax so that should tell you how comfortable it is.
Delivery was prompt and it was easy to put together. It looks beautiful in my kitchen and makes it feel more cozy. The only thing I'm not thrilled with is the feel of the seat cushion. It has the feel of a sponge instead of instead of a cotton or down mix feel, but I still love it.
