Trend Watch: Trunks


House Beautiful, July 08

I’ve seen a ot of retail vendors pushing trunks as furniture these days and thought I’d do a nice little round up for you since I am a fan of the look! Not only do they offer hidden storage (toys, srtack sof magazines you can’t bear to throw out…ahem!) but they add a little bit of vintage whimsy to any space.

This affordable version from Z. Gallerie would make a lovely little side table.

My favorites from WS Home– as side tables, paired as cocktail tables, or the large version as a coffee table! Yes, please.

Pottery Barn mixes it up with an equestrian inspired version and a metal trunk to provide a little glamorous sheen to the trend…

I have a friend who used to have a HUGE vintage LV trunk with a piece of glass on top of it as her coffee table. I die. I saw one at Brimfield last year and tried to convince my dad to buy it as “an investment”- for $8k. :) Can’t blame a girl for trying!

Feelin’ rich? How about this vintage Goyard trunk? Holy gorgeousness, Batman!

A lucite trunk you could fill with shells or any kind of collection for visual punch, from Plexicraft.

I fear that this is actually REAL zebra, which makes me sad, but could there be a trunk that is more “me”? Nope. A bit less of an “endangered species” vibe is found in these cowhide trunks from Mecox Gardens.

I love this colorful antique trunk from Jayson Home & Garden– great at the foot of a bed.

How about this amazing painted leather trunk from my cousin’s shop, with it’s bright blue lining?? A-MA-ZING.
