About

This Italian 18th century Rococo backless upholstered painted wood bench features two out-scrolled arms over a beautifully scalloped skirt on three sides. The bench is raised on six cabriole legs, connected to one another with a sinuous cross stretcher. The color is made of a soft green (a color particularly praised in the 18th century) with lighter accents. The long seat and arms are upholstered in a neutral Belgian linen. With its elegant, discreet finish and curvy Rococo lines, this Italian 18th century long bench would be a wonderful accent in any home.
