This wonderful pine bench started life as a spare bed in a Swedish country home. Notice the two extra "feet" along the front panel? This lower storage section pulls outward, which originally allowed for a trundle mattress to fit inside and serve as a spare bed in the 1800's. The dramatic, tall arched back is eye catching, while a delightful subtle "style touch" is the applied carved heart in the front center of the bench, flanked with two additional carved details. The bench has been left natural pine, allowing the buyer to customize as desired whether waxed, stained, painted or left raw and natural. The bench is being sold in as is, original used condition as we found it in Sweden. We invite you to contact us with any questions regarding this or other pieces, and hope to assist you further.
