The husband and I were supposed to move into our new apartment, which got delayed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic unfortunately but I have been on a hunt for all the things I want and need for our new place. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know I love Fashion & Luxury. I feel like your home should be a reflection of who you are as a person and so I decided I must add Luxury Designer home accent pieces to my decor amongst other things. This lead me to do an extensive research on some of the iconic and timeless Luxury Designer Home items.
Two of the major items on my wish list are Louis Vuitton Trunks. I already did a post on how I would love to have a trunk as a coffee table which you can find here. The second trunk on my list is the Malle Fleurs, or the flower trunk.
As per the official Louis Vuitton 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.”
Once created as a gift for VIP clients, they have brought back this iconic piece in their current offerings. Everyone knows about Louis Vuitton and its history as a trunk maker. I had seen pictures of trunks being used as a furniture piece before but not of the Malle Fleur. I only came across pictures of it recently when I was looking up inspiration images for the trunks being used as furniture. I think the flower trunk is so underrated, may be because it’s so exclusive. Prices at USD 6950 (CAD 8050) it’s definitely a splurge.
There are barely any pictures on the web of this beautiful gem, other than ones on the official website but here are some of the pictures I found and love:
I think it’s a beautiful piece and well worth the hefty price tag. It’s a beautiful way to add a touch of luxury in your home decor. The Louis Vuitton trunks are iconic and this one is no exception. The craftsmanship of this trunk is beautiful with all the iconic elements – the monogram canvas exterior, wooden slats, and golden metallic pieces. The tray that holds the flowers is made of coated brass, hermetic and is water-resistant. This piece will definitely withstand the test of time and will make a beautiful heirloom piece. I love fresh flowers and any flower arrangement in this beautiful trunk will definitely make a statement piece.
