Vintage trunks are unique pieces that add a bit of flair to your design. They can work best as end tables or decorative pieces in your bedroom, living room, library or study. Below are some RGI finds that we think would look amazing in your home.
England Late 20th Century
One of a limited edition of trunks superbly made by hand with an original Britannia Silk sail designed and manufactured by Ratsey & Lapthorn for the J-Class Yacht Endeavour II in 1937. This piece is ideally as coffee table in a Naples beach house.
I love these vintage trunks from the Golden Age of Travel. Steamer trunks such as the one above were common sights at railway stations and major docks around the world.
Vintage Military Trunk
Military Trunks come in various shapes and sizes. They have plenty of character and create nice conversation pieces. I personally would look for ones with some slight rusting and worn metal in designs such as the one above.
English Polished Steel steamer liner trunk
Below is a rare find but if you were lucky enough to get ahold of one these it would make an amazing statement in your study.
