You can find them forgotten in the home attics of your grandparents or at any flea market.

By all means the mission of old trunk is decoration. In other words, it can be a special item place into a corner that you want to stand out.
But these fabulous and versatile objects can be used as alternative ideas for different furniture pieces. They can be used as coffee tables, side tables, pedestals for potted plants, etc.
The decorative function of the trunks can be accentuated by creating a vintage decoration with flowers, bottles, old boxes, old pictures, and any other motifs that highlight its old value.

Trunks can be used effectively in the bedroom. They are perfect for both, decorative element, and extra-storage space. The most ideal places are along the walls or as a bed foot bench.
