Antique and Vintage Benches and Stools

Stools and benches have slimmed down dramatically over the years from the days of heavy, plain wood slatted Victorian benches with iron frames (and sometimes velvet or needlework cushions). Mid-Century, Eames, and Scandinavian designs became very sparse, with thin legs and simple cushions. Benches disappeared somewhat from the interior decor palette, and the few that were made were essentially cushioned versions of very simple designs.
