The husband and I are planning to move into our new home soon so I have been obsessively pinning inspiration images on Pinterest. I think the first time I saw Vintage Louis Vuitton travel trunk being used as a coffee table was on Pinterest a few years ago, and thought it was a really cool idea.
I love my designer wear and so I was looking for designer homeware and decor inspiration, which lead me to once again discover images on Louis Vuitton Trunks being used as furniture and in home decor. I think its a stunning idea and I would love to somehow incorporate it in my home. A lot of images I found on Pinterest are of Vintage Louis Vuitton trunks. I have also recently noticed some vintage trunks in various Louis Vuitton stores being used to display the merchandise.
The husband and I have a very similar taste in decor. We both love modern, luxe and minimalistic style, so even though I love the idea of incorporating trunks into my decor, I still want it to be more modern and minimalistic.
While I searched for inspiration pictures online, I found lots of vintage, country style decor where designer – mostly Louis Vuitton, some Goyard and a lot of non designer vintage and new trunks being styled as coffee table, night stand, side table or just decor elements.
Louis Vuitton started as a trunk and travel luggage company and to this they offer a selection of exceptional trunks including some made to order special pieces.
Read/scroll on for some of the inspiration images which I found and love. The images that are closest to my imagination are from a couple of very exclusive exhibitions held by Louis Vuitton in the past few years.
The first one is from L’Apartment Louis Vuittion, a special exhibition held in Singapore in November 2016
The following images are from Kezia Karin’s Super Project for 2019 Louis Vuitton Exotic Leather Collection.
I love how flawlessly the trunk is incorporated as a coffee table and console table in the otherwise very contemporary apartment.
While searching for these images I also came across Louis Vuitton Malle Fleurs – A Flower Trunk. As per the official website “A romantic piece rooted in Louis Vuitton history, the Malle Fleurs is a reinterpretation of an iconic piece created in the 1910s for our very best clients: the flower trunk. The water-resistant metallic tray and Vuittonite lining mean that flowers, water, or soil can be put in the tray without damaging it.” I think it’s a stunning way to incorporate the trunk in your decor if the giant trunk is a bit much for you.
Here are some more inspiration pictures for both modern are country style decor:
