Our advice Buying Guide

What style will a shabby chic trunk match apart from shabby chic?

A shabby chic trunk can certainly match other styles apart from the most obvious shabby chic, and it mainly depends on what design and color you opt for.

Shabby chic trunks that feature a distressed look are perfect for French country décor too, and you could even look for a model that includes some vintage writing or engravings in French to add to that provincial feel.

When opting for shabby chick trunks that rely on a wooden design, you can easily pair them up with a more rustic décor, too.

Overall, these trunks work really well with retro and vintage interiors, especially when they’re white and slightly discolored.

Just be sure to keep your room’s palette in mind to smoothen this transition and help your shabby chic trunk match your interior style more consistently.

Where to place a shabby chic trunk?

A shabby chic trunk is a versatile piece that can be placed in several different spots depending on your preferences and availability:

  • In your living room, you could place it by the window, next to your seating area, or even use it as a coffee table or a surface to showcase a few decorative elements
  • As a room divider in an open plan living room with a dining area
  • In your bedroom, a shabby chic trunk would look beautiful at the bottom of your bed. Or how about using it as a night stand?

How do you make a trunk look old?

If you’re in love with shabby chic interiors, then making your trunk look old will reinforce the worn-out feeling that characterizes this decorative style.

For example, you can do so by painting it in a white color or a lighter wood stain and giving it a distressed feel by using sandpaper.

However, the simplest thing is obviously to choose a shabby chic trunk that was literally designed to look that way!
