About - Vintage Trunks & Chests

Furniture with Form & Function

At Vintage Trunks & Chests we restore antique & vintage luggage items to be used as creative, multipurpose storage solutions in the modern home. Whether you're on the hunt for a versatile statement piece with timeless design or looking for sustainable furniture made to a high standard of traditional craftsmanship we're here for you.                                                                                                                                                            
It gives us great joy to rescue these beautiful pieces of history, which are often in a very poor state of repair, and do our utmost to restore them to their former glory. Working with care, expertise and attention to fine detail we put our hearts and souls into bringing them back to life so they can be passed on to future generations.

We practice conservation over restoration wherever possible. Any necessary restoration work is completed honestly and sympathetically, respecting the integrity of the individual piece. We are mindful about the materials we use and choose reclaimed or traditionally made, locally sourced, parts wherever possible to replace and repair. Simon has a penchant for fixing locks so most items come with a working lock and key! Each item is meticulously hand finished using traditional, time honoured methods.

WE TAKE COMMISSIONS! We can now source & restore your choice of trunk or chest to order - just drop us a line with your requirements (age/style/finish/dimensions) and we will begin our search for your perfect piece of furniture.

You will also find a range of complimentary home accessories on our website including our made to order coat hooks - these are fully customisable and we work with you to create your own bespoke design.

You can find more examples of our work in the Gallery and on Instagram @vintagetandc

Thanks so much for your support!
