Will Not Hold Much Weight
Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like The Amazonia Milano 4-Feet Eucalyptus Bench will hold much weight. Here is a comment left by a customer, “I’m sorry to leave a negative review because the bench looks absolutely beautiful. But I just assembled it and the main beam on the seat broke as soon as my friend sat on it. Neither of us are very big (155lbs each), and it cracked immediately after he sat down–and he sat down pretty gently. Very disappointing. Because we didn’t assemble it for 6 weeks after buying it, apparently there are no returns or other options.”
If you are planning on more than one average-sized adult sitting on this bench at a time it isn’t worth the risk of testing the bench limits. Another customer said, “We have a few family members who are about 200lbs, and it starts to make splintering noises with about 220 lbs on it. Other than that, it’s perfect.”
Some people liked that this bench is made of Eucalyptus. One customer said, “A very reasonably priced garden bench, and the fact that it’s made of Eucalyptus, an easily renewable wood, makes it ecological as well. The reddish stain is not attractive, however. I hope it will weather.”
Will Need to Add Oil
In order to keep this bench looking nice and lasting longer, it’s important to add oil at least once a year. If the bench will be in a sunny location all year long, you may want to add oil even more often. Also, if it will be getting a large amount of precipitation on it, you may want to add oil. A customer shared, “We got this bench to go with the rest of the Amazonia dining and seating sets. It’s easy to assemble, sturdy, and looks great! Be sure to get the oil with it and apply as recommended so it weathers well, but we are very happy so far!”
Goes Well with Other Amazonia Seating Sets
If you wanted to add on to your seating options, you may want to consider looking into buying the rest of the Amaznia seating sets. A customer shared, “We got this bench to go with the rest of the Amazonia dining and seating sets. It’s easy to assemble, sturdy, and looks great! Be sure to get the oil with it and apply as recommended so it weathers well, but we are very happy so far!”
The Amazonia Milano 4-Feet Eucalyptus Bench will wobble according to some customers. Here is one of the comments about wobbling, “While the item looked nice, it was very wobbly once put together. I purchased it on June 4th and noticed today August 6 that the armrest is broken where it attaches to the backrest. Coincidentally today was the last day I could have returned it to Amazon. The chairs and tables seem to be holding up but I won’t waste the money on a replacement for the bench.”
Easy to Assemble
The Amazonia Milano 4-Feet Eucalyptus Bench is easy to assemble according to the majority of customers who reviewed it. A customer shared, “My husband and I put this bench together this morning. Took less than 30 minutes, 6 wooden pegs, 6 screws, oh so simple! The design made it so you place the pegs and that lines up the screws for you! The screws had blunt tips which helped them go into the pre-drilled holes. I was impressed with the design of the assembly and the quality of the bench. One thing I would change is Phillips head screws instead of Allen wrench screws (we used pliers to turn the Allen wrench), but there is no way I will lower the rating for that. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. Great purchase.”
Multiple Reports of It Being Uncomfortable
This may be an attractive bench to look at, but unfortunately, according to customers, it is uncomfortable to sit on. You could increase the comfort of the bench by keeping it well oiled, but still it may not be the most comfortable bench to sit on. You may want to consider adding cushions. A customer shared, “If you are looking for a garden bench that really looks good, and if you do NOT intend on sitting in it, then this bench may (or may not) be the one for you. However, if you want a garden bench that looks great AND is comfortable, then this bench is NOT for you. We were very much looking forward to using this out in the rear garden to sit and chat and read and rest – but no one, no one, has managed to stay sitting in it for more than five or ten minutes.”
This is a very inexpensive bench compared to other benches of this size. The majority of people who bought it and also left a review on the price, commented that it was a good buy. Here is one of those comments, “What a great buy. Nice quality for a very reasonable price. The bench is well-made and is a great match for my two nutmeg colored wicker patio chairs. I rubbed it down with lemon oil as soon as I had it put together, which was an easy assemble, and I expect it will last a long time.”
Longer Than Advertised
If you need or want a bench that is exactly 4 feet long, you should know that this bench is a bit longer than 4 feet. Some people may have just a 4-foot area to put it in or maybe you poured concrete that is only a 4-foot slab for a bench. Whatever the case may be, this bench is slightly longer than 4 feet.
A customer shared, “This is not a four feet bench, after it was put together, I noticed it was longer than the four feet. Unfortunately, It had to be exactly four feet since I have stones in the ground that fits four feet exactly. I called Amazon and they told me they would send another one, It also was not the correct size. Dealing with Amazon was a pleasure, they helped me select a bench that was, in fact, four feet and I am very happy with it. Customer service is great. If you need a four feet exactly bench this is not it. I’m surprised it is still on Amazon as that particular size. Also, the quality of this bench was very light and flimsy.”
- Easy to assemble
- Great price
- Breaks easily
