I LOVE this banquette. I purchased it to have a comfy chair to sit/lounge at a desk, not a dining table. The colour is gorgeous. It is not a "sink in" kind of chair - it sits more upright and firm. But that's what i wanted - to get off the couch while using the computer. It is big enough to pull up your feet and lounge over to one side. it was a challenge for me to screw in the legs - took a lot of muscle and a much better screw driver than the small tool provided.
I bought this for my Bishop Table and it fits great. Everybody calls it "Queen Chair" It looks beautiful, the color is unique and very pretty, Just wish the seat would be a bit more upholstered. Overall - i recommend it, and would buy it again.
I realize that World Market is not a high-end furniture store and is not known for their high-quality pieces, however, not being able to properly screw in the legs of this banquette makes it fall into the category of cheaply made. It's pretty, but the screws don't even go all the way in the holes even without the legs attached. Moreover, some of the screw holes are angled so I'm trying to guess which direction they are supposed to go in hopes that the screws will go all the way in if I angle them. When I received the box, I inspected it to make sure everything looked good, but could not get to the box inside the box with the legs. If I had, I would have discovered that one of the front legs has a visible crack in it. Also, I used the free shipping code for orders of more than $150, but they still charged me an extra $100 for an odd-shaped shipment. So I spent $500 for a banquette that doesn't even have proper screw holes. Not impressed. If you read the other reviews, you'll find that other people who ordered this item also struggled with the same issue.
Have this bench in a dining area between distressed light green hutches. A 1930's wood kitchen table stands in front of this bench. Because it is up against a wall, it is very stable. I have two of the pacific Elliot wing chairs in the adjoining living room.
The banquette is a perfect fit for our small dining area. Please be aware, however, that the color of blue that you see on the website is not even close to the actual color, which is a much darker muted shade of blue. Although we were looking forward to the bright turquoise blue color, the darker blue works for us, too.
These are great. I bought 2 to use at my dining room table and they look amazing!!
