A classic custom-made bench would give your bedroom interior a more glamorous and timeless appeal.

This small bench with cabriole legs made of solid oak is meant to adorn the foot of the bed.
It is a rustic Louis XV style bench. (1730-1760)

Nowadays, an interior without new types of 18th century style seating furniture is hardly imaginable.

In the 18th century, the diversity in design and make was enormous. New types of seating furniture appeared, characterized by their comfortable shape and precious upholstery.

One of the biggest changes to seating furniture during this period was the total lack of H or X shaped joints between the legs.
The legs were slender en had a beautiful S shaped curve that gently and fluently crossed over into the finely bent front and side strips. The upholstery, fixed to these strips, flowed along this fine curve.
