Stylish vintage trunks

Need somewhere to tidy away the kids’ toys? Or a box to store winter clothes during the summer? A roomy vintage trunk is handy to have around. Not only does it add style and history. It’s excellent for keeping things in, too. Find gorgeous chests and hampers in our storage selection. These sturdy trunks are made from excellent quality woods, metals and leathers and span the ages from the 16th to 21st century.

Trunks with a history

Vintage travel trunks for long journeys by rail or sea, ottomans for perching on and coffers for keeping valuables. Each of these vintage storage trunks has had a previous life and the ability to bring character and class to your space. In your lounge, create a warm shabby chic style. Place a beautifully worn down wooden or metal chest alongside a vintage sofa and distressed wooden sideboard in this style. Signs of use like cracks and rubbed off paint only add to their charm.

Looking for something in slightly better nick? We also have lots of pieces that look almost as good as new. You’ll find refurbished styles as well as upcycled pieces in our range. Some have been meticulously revarnished. Others have had four feet added to the bottom so they’re all ready to use as side tables or coffee tables.

Gorgeous wooden chests

Wood has long been used to make chests and trunks thanks to its robust, long lasting qualities. Our vintage wooden trunks are made from gorgeous pine, mahogany, teak, beech, elm, walnut and more. If you’re after something specific, use the filters on our site to hone down your search.

Intricate carvings, elegant panelling and highly ornate inlays add to the grace of these wooden pieces. In the bedroom, place a wooden vintage storage trunk at the end of a vintage bed to keep blankets and bed linen close to hand.

Metal and leather chests

Large and small vintage trunks in steel, copper and tin chests feature together with gorgeous fine leather. Some have original painted lettering that conjures up evocative images of days gone by, be it an advertising slogan, an owner name or a destination.

Why not place ornaments and plants on a motor car trunk in rich brown leather to create an attractive display under a window? Metal vintage storage trunks are perfect for building industrial style decors too. Combine with some of our industrial shelves for a cohesive look.

Louis Vuitton trunks

It was back in 1858 that Frenchman Louis Vuitton made his first steamer trunk, famous for its flat top and waterproof design. This was the first step in his journey to becoming an iconic luxury goods maker. In our vintage trucks collection, find vintage Louis Vuitton trunks spanning the decades with hallmark features including bronze locks and instantly recognisable monogram print.

From gloriously decadent original Louis Vuitton trunks to authentic vintage travel trunks, you’ll find them all in our collection. Find precious vintage pieces and support our community of over 1,800 small local businesses when you shop with Vinterior.
