|Has anyone ever purchased one of these benches (or anything) from Eloquence? Several online retailers have this bench and there are several local shops that can get it for me. I emailed the company and the response was delightful, so at least they have that in their favor! The furniture is made in Vietnam. US-made would be preferable, but I can live with Vietnam. |
I like the look of these and haven't found any that are quite as lovely, although I am not a fan of the "shabby" paint effect. I figure that I can easily repaint if it is too much for me.
I want it for the guest room which I recently painted, etc.
Thoughts/opinions are welcome-positive and negative. Thanks all.
|No but I made my own it's really easy to diy.|
|It's really pretty. I love the legs/French style. Since it is for a guest room and I assume won't get a ton of use, if the price is right I say go for it.|
|Aputernut, very pretty. I am always envious of talented people like you! |
Mamorella, the price is $825 which I don't mind spending if it is a decent sturdy bench, but I hesitate since I don't know if it is. Ballard has a pretty Louis XVI bench. It is less expensive and 15% off right now, but it has an end of May ship date! :( no instant gratification there!
Sigh. What to do, what to do. I will probably dither and never get anything.

|Oops-meant to say thanks to you two! :)|
|Cyn, that price seems quite high to me. I'm guessing it won't get a lot of use in the guest bedroom? I found the one linked below on eBay for $449 or Best Offer. The seller has 100% positive feedback and the shipping is free. It has 4 legs rather than 6, but looks nice. |

|My3dogs, you are amazing! Even though it is smaller, the bench you linked is very pretty. I bid (probably a little high) and got it. Should arrive in January. So excited. Thanks a million. You always come through with the best sources and ideas! I will let you know how it looks when it arrives!|
|Too bad it is out of stock here........ |
Same manufacture just different sites.
If you can wait 'till Feb might be worth it .

|I love the style you've shown but the price seems hefty. Ballard Designs has similar styles that are less expensive (see Marlow style at very bottom of page).|

|Cyn427, the Ebay bench is lovely. Great purchase, congrats!|
|Forboystoo, I did see that one and didn't order because it was out of stock. I like it because it is made in Georgia. The one my3dogs posted looks to be almost exactly the same. Maybe it is the same manufacturer. Thanks so much. If I hate it when it comes, I will definitely try the Zentique one. I was hoping to get it before friends come to visit in January. |
Thanks again to all of you!
|Hilltop, thank you for the Ballard's suggestion. I did consider one of theirs-the Louis XVI-that was less than the Eloquence and which comes in a walnut finish and as I noted is 15% off right now. Were I not so impulsive (sigh), I would have waited for that one. I like its length. I am hoping the similar one I ordered looks as nice in real life. The one I ordered was less even considering the price reduction. |
I cannot tell you all how much I appreciate all your help, advice, and support! You are the best.
|cyn, love the bench you bought! I was coming back to say that looks great and you should get it. Great find, my3dogs!!|
|Thanks for the vote of confidence, mamorella! I will post a picture when it comes. I am always so unsure when I can't see or touch something. Fingers crossed.|
|Check Amazon and Overstock both web sites have several and much better prices.|
|Thanks Aputernut. I did check those. I got the eBay one for a really good price, so I hope it works!|
