Simple Chest And Bench Combination plansFree Simple Chest And Bench Combination plans - Below the seat is a chest, readily accessible by merely lifting the seat. No lock is pictured, but other contemporary chests were so equipped. Above the seat, the backrest pivots on pegs which attach it to the sides. This may have been to aid in moving the piece once the chest was filled, as there are no handles; or, may have been a security feature, with the backrest/handle pivoted opposite the hinges, the chest is inaccessible. In actual fact, the purpose may be to allow the user to face either direction without moving the settle. Some paintings show the settle before a fireplace and supports this conclusion.
