Italian beauties

 

One of my preferred pieces of furniture is an Italian cassapanca.

I love the decorative painted ones!

Most of the benches are large sized and the seat is used as a chest, a storage seat.

They are highly decorated and were generally placed by pair in a hall.

Does anyone of you own an Italian cassapanca? I hope to ever find an affordable one!
