We own a Reyes bench with a Natural Ash finish, and no seat cushion. We're absolutely loving the modern and minimalist form, solid wood construction, and understated elegance of the brass detailing. This was originally going to be a bed-end bench (the height seems like it would be perfect for that), but have opted instead to treat it as a statement piece to showcase in our entryway. For being a solid wood bench, it is astoundingly comfortable—its depth and height feel just right. We're thrilled to live with a quality piece that is sure to last us a lifetime (or more!).
