The first thing that comes to mind when we think about a steamer trunk? The buzzy excitement that accompanies packing up for a capitol A-style Adventure. Sounds fabulously vintage, doesn’t it? A steamer trunk is a lovely storage option, especially if you love a vintage travel theme. Fuss-free and roomy on the inside, an antique steamer trunk BRINGS the fancy. A traditional wooden vintage steamer trunk with polished latches or a boho chic floral steamer trunk (or anything in between) works beautifully as an accent piece. Channel your creativity and use this piece of vintage furniture as a coffee table or as a dresser at the foot of the bed. Work one in and you have accessible, out-of-sight storage for all those photo albums, coffee table books, and other random trinkets in a flash. When used as a a coffee table, your steamer trunk will do all the decorating heavy-lifting for you. Don’t blame us if your guests always want to talk about the steamer trunk / coffee table--we love a good conversation starter! If you're really struggling with the limitations of a small space, but love a vintage vibe, use a small steamer trunk as a bedside table / vanity combo. The flat-top surface of the trunk is plenty big enough for a lamp, a long mirror (which can also be hung on the wall), makeup, and maybe even the odd succulent. Did we mention this idea is also ingenious and so original? Full steam ahead!
