About - Vintage Trunks & Chests

Furniture with Form & Function

At Vintage Trunks & Chests we source and restore antique & vintage luggage items to be used as multipurpose and creative storage solutions in the modern home. Whether you're searching for a versatile statement piece with timeless design & traditional craftsmanship or sustainable furniture with form & function that could one day become a family heirloom, 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.

We choose 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 where 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 also do a Made To Order range of reclaimed wooden furniture and home decor including storage trunks, coffee tables & coat racks. These are fully customisable and we work with you to create your perfect piece of furniture. You can find more examples of our work across social media @vintagetandc
