Antique Benches and Trunks

Indisputably the first cased furniture, the lowly Antique Trunk has evolved into a magnificent possession that is prized by families across the world. Some unnamed enterprising artisan added armrests and a seatback to the trunk, and voila, the antique hall bench was conceived!  Antique Furniture like this design can prove useful and attractive in any room of the home or office, including small nooks, hallways, entryways, and the now-popular "mud room".  Also ideal at the foot of the bed, or even as a coffee table, antique trunks and antique benches are so well established, we know they will still be a decorative and functional antique furniture choice for centuries to come!  View our entire selection at Inessa Stewart Antiques Online Wholesale Antique Furnituire Store ~ OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
