Nowadays the sleeping beauties are only seldom used for traveling.
Hereunder is a list of ideas that we have found or created with customers:
- Pile of suitcases 80, 70 , 60 and 50 cm in the entry
By forming a kind of perfect totem, it evokes the departure in the Orient-Express. :-)
- Steamer trunk at the bed end to store the blankets for winter
But some customers have other ideas, like these Wardrobe trunks
used in a bathroom to store/display bathrobes, towels, soap and other bathroom accessories.
Many are those who use small trunks as laundry basket, lingerie trunk or chest for secrets…
Trunks can also be found as valets in bedrooms or as extra seats.
Some use them as stand to put a nice lamp in a corridor, or as bedside table.
Sometimes we create a custom-made plinth to display them, or else, like at that man from Luxembourg’s home, we make a glass cube that totally protects the trunk.
Thus displayed in a case, it becomes a kind of objet d’art within everyone’s sight but out of reach for hands.
