Interior Trend: Vintage Trunks
It’s hardly a new trend (not in any sense of the word actually), but as of late I find my eyes drawn towards interiors containing vintage trunks. As a fairly dedicated germaphobe, it isn’t often I throw caution to the antibacterial hand soap and hunker down with interest in an inherited object. So great is the trunk’s appeal that I find myself caught up in the intrigue and mystery of it all, “Just imagine the kind of life it’s had! The adventures this trunk has known! Why, I bet King Henry VII himself stowed the likes of his Nikes and hand-scribed Shakespearean notes inside! (At least a duke).”
The possibilities for such trunks are seemingly endless; from coffee tables to nightstands, benches and bars, these offer a sturdy surface and storage to boot.
Technically speaking, it’s a wise investment, as multi-tasking furniture is always an asset, and, being double-purposed, some might argue double the worth.
So now I want to know: what’s your take on the trunk? Speak up, don’t be shy (let’s not forget I just ascribed imagined ownership of Nikes to King Henry, so there’s really no embarrassing yourself here).
