We kindly suggest that you read the entire description, as with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to ensure the authenticity of our objects. A pair of Italian benches made of oak wood; the solid structure of each is made even more stable by two sturdy brass bars that join the legs; the shaping of the whole form is very elegant and sober; but what makes these benches unique and original is the seat, made of a luxurious creamy white long-haired Mongolian sheepskin. The benches were made between 1950 and 1955 in one of the many handicraft workshops in the area of Lissone (Monza-Brianza-Italy), a place famous for the production of high-quality carpentry; the craftsmen were inspired by the desire to design two objects with small dimensions, privileging the idea of comfort and intimacy, and they gave the benches timeless originality, following the fashion of those years; their design plays on the contrast between the rigidity of wood and the warm softness of sheepskin. We can say that with these characteristics our benches interpret spaces where elegance is put at the service of leisure and entertainment. The benches are so original that they can be a nice and practical aesthetic solution to complete your decor, they are suitable for any environment, in the entrance hall, in the sleeping area at the foot of the bed, in the living room, in the study, and with their comfortable and soft sheepskin they invite you to sit and rediscover the pleasure of spending comfortable and pleasant moments. The Mongolian sheep is a breed with fine, long hair that lives in most of Mongolia, Siberia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan; this animal is considered by Mongolians to be one of the 5 sacred animals besides the horse, camel, goat, and cow, and is raised with care and love, and is the country's most significant source of wealth. Winter in Mongolia is very long, lasting nearly six months, and clothes are needed to keep warm even at -40 degrees Celsius, those people usually use clothing mainly made of sheep wool. Measurements each width cm.72, depth cm,50, height cm.34, seat cm.34. The items are in good condition and the leather is soft and clean.
