Chinese Elm Bench

This elm bench is a perfect coffee table size. Dates from the last quarter of the 19th century.

How much simpler can you get in a bench?  This one has a plain plank  top.  The legs are joined directly to the top, with an added apron connecting the legs, and simple spandrels.  This bench is a model of simplicity.  Some people think that all  Chinese furniture is heavily carved.  This bench is mute refutation of that belief.
