Vintage velvet theater seats taken from a theater in Italy and turned into a 3-seat bench.  These theater seats were made by the “Sonego” company in Treviso, which was founded in 1956 and continues to produce seating for cinemas and stadiums.  The sprung seats are comfortable, and the velvet is intact though showing some wear.  This bench is sturdy and for added stability, it could be anchored to the floor.
