Louis Vuitton Furniture

Reinventing leather luggage, Louis Vuitton trunks addressed an emerging need. With its fine monogram canvas and stamped solid brass handles, the famed box maker on Rue Saint-Honoré, Lous Vuitton, saw travel for pleasure necessities were lacking & travel trunks were a much-needed item to match those grandiose outfits.

One hundred years since their first inception, Louis Vuitton chest and trunks have been modified and customised into numerous revivals. From travelling bookworm libraries to skateboard and violin cases, these traditional trunks have transcended to become the all-purpose must-have accessory today.

Boosting creative fabrics, a red-striped canvas, or a grey Trianon canvas, with a blend of the brand’s initials stamped on solid brass locks, clasps, and handles, the iconic Louis Vuitton trunks have integrated perfectly from travel essentials back in the day into living must-haves.

Finding a new meaning as furniture, they are used as console tables in penthouses across New York City apartments or can be found stacked together as bedside tables in a London guest room; Louis Vuitton's chests and trunks turn any blank canvas into a perfectly proportioned piece of furniture.

Snap up a Louis Vuitton steamer trunk and turn your bedside table into a remembered treasure chest.

More about Louis Vuitton Trunks and ChestsThe man who reinvented leather luggage was once just an apprentice at a thriving box-making and packing workshop of Monsieur Maréchal. It would take him 17 years before his road to fame began.

In 1835 Louis Vuitton hit the road and travelled to Paris; his humble beginnings began in the small town of Anchay, France, his mother had died when he was ten, and his father remarried. The relationship between Louis and his new stepmother was turbulent.

That trip to Paris would last two years, stopping at different locations along the way to pick up old jobs and travelling by foot or horse carriage; he finally arrived in 1837, at the height of the Industrial Revolution.
Gaining an apprentice position with Monsieur Maréchal at a successful box-making and packing Parisian atelier. Louis worked as a malletier for over 17 years.
Quickly becoming a valued craftsman, he gained a reputation for custom designing boxes and trunks according to his client's wishes. Paris's elite class called upon his skills, and he was known as the best trunk maker in town.
Napoleon III's wife, Eugenie de Montijo, commissioned Louis to be her personal box-maker and packer. This would be his access to a new type of clientele, royalty, the rich, and the famous.

Louis left Paris' most reputable layetier emballeurs. By that time, Louis already had 17 years' worth of experience and well-established credentials; he opened his workshop at Rue Neuve-des-Capucines near the famed Place Vendome. Outside his shop, he grabbed the attention of passers-by with a hung sign that read: "Securely packs the most fragile objects.

Louis went for a radical, innovative design, specialising in packing fashions; travel trunks were much needed to match those grandiose outfits. The demand for Vuitton's enduring, lightweight designs prompted his expansion into a more extensive workshop in Asnières-Sur-Seine.

In the 1900s, travelers carried all their essentials inside wardrobes and flat trunks; unfortunately, burglars knew this too. Revolutionising luggage locks, Louis developed the first pick-proof lock, an ingenious closing method that turned trunks into treasure chests.

Since its first inception, Louis Vuitton chest and trunks have been modified and customised into numerous renewals. From travelling bookworm libraries to skateboard and violin cases, these traditional trunks have transcended to become the all-purpose must-have accessory today.
