The thing I love about vintage luggage in interior design is that it seems to be one of the few design elements that has the ability to be completely gender neutral.
Dark rustic colors, disheveled aesthetic and the inevitable connotation of travel and adventure appeal to men while women seem to enjoy the idea of juxtaposing antique luggage with feminine and shabby-chic adornments or stacking them in precarious arrangements.
So it’s a win-win. Right, Special Man Friend?
Louis Vuitton vintage trunk. An obvious choice. Design Sponge.
Love the quirky throw-back easiness of this look. Two things (luggage rack, luggage) being used in the most traditional way possible. Except not at all being used as such. You know? Do you? Design Sponge.
Oh hey there, Louis. Long time no see. 6th Street Design School.
I adore this look. Simple, sparse, nostalgic, semi-androgenic, and a perfect arrangement of collaged art. design sponge.
Okay, so I dig the ultra-current trends happening in this room (zebra rug, jute rug, geometric patterns) but I feel like, should one choose to incorporate zebra into a room, it should be limited to one object. Matchy-patterning seems like forcey-overkill. Literally. Ha! I slay myself. Design Indulgences.
Simple, sweet, grassroots. Again, literally. Home DIT.
Love stacked luggage as a nightstand. Love it. Design Sponge.
English designer James Plumb created these unique vintage suitcase drawers. Old suitcases are housed in antique steel and tailor-made wood chests, to form a series of unique chests of drawers. Every suitcase is refurbished inside with a lot of attention detail. Each drawer is unique, different sizes and combinations can be ordered. Larry Fire.
Subtle, no? Home Furniture Design.
