Description

This vintage storage trunk is wrapped in distressed faux leather and straps and adorned with rivets. It comes in black, brown, dark brown, and red, has a lined interior and safety hinges, and can hold two hundred and fifty pounds.

Designer Advice

The drawers on the bottom half of this chest are small enough to fit spare candles, incense sticks, and other things. One drawback to the drawers is they take away storage space from inside the trunk. The tufted top can be used as a seat in an entrance or bedroom or can double up as a living room coffee table.

Designer Advice

If you need a textural element that is both gorgeous and allows you to store items, this is a fantastic choice. Because there are two, a neat way to style them is by stacking them offset from each other and setting them in a room corner.

Buying Guide

There are lots of different ways to use large decorative storage trunks for decorative purposes, so this is your chance to get creative. For example, you could use them:

  • As a coffee table in your living room
  • As nightstands or at the bottom of your bed in your bedroom
  • To store umbrellas, pet supplies, and other last-minute accessories in your foyer or mudroom

You can also decide to leave them open and have decorative items like blankets or books stick out of them.

We’ve found that there are two main styles of large decorative storage trunks: hefty hardwood trunks that hinge up at the back that otherwise don’t feature any decoration, and metal, wooden, or leather trunks that have decorative edging that criss-crosses around the storage trunk for a more industrial or vintage vibe.

If you’re going for a minimalist or modern effect, it’s best to stay with a trunk that is seamless and without these types of decorative borders; let the material speak for itself. If you want your space to have more of a busier look, find a storage trunk with the contrasting borders that you like.

Alternatively, you can decorate with them by placing progressively smaller trunks on top of your largest one.
