John Lewis Traveller’s Trunk

If you're a fan of the trend for using old trunks and suitcases to create extra storage then take a look at this Travellers Trunk from John Lewis.

Handmade with antique zinc-plating the trunk has a galvinised, vintage steam trunk look. It's finished with colourful, retro-style travel stickers and shiny locks. It's a useful and inexpensive piece that will only improve with age.

The trunk is available in two different sizes, the smaller costing £35 and the larger £45. Check it out on the John Lewis website here.

Conran Shop Marilyn Trunk


Truly the stuff of fantasy, the Conran Shop's Marilyn Trunk is the perfect piece of luggage for travelling by ocean liner from London to New York. Crafted from walnut wood and veneers in a 1920's style, the trunk is inspired by the golden age of transatlantic travel.

Realistically most of us are not really in need of such a fantastic piece of luggage but it does make a stylish and relatively compact dressing table measuring W55 x D63 x H113 cms. It has plenty of storage for make-up, toiletries and accessories and best of all,  a secret drawer to keep your jewellery in.

Living the Gatsby life doesn't come cheap – the trunk costs £2,395 and you can find it here.
