Leather steamer trunks are a prime example of something that was once purely functional and which have now become more of an item of furniture, beloved by interior decorators everywhere.
There was a time when no self-respecting traveller would board an ocean going liner or indeed any other passenger carrying vessel without some kind of sizeable trunk in which to store their clothing, accessories and other items for what was often a long period of time in the days when journeys routinely took weeks or even months instead of just hours or days as is often the case now.
Leather steamer trunks are primarily used as decorative items these days, and we even offer one version that doubles-up as a coffee table. In fact, leather steamer trunks make a truly stylish and interesting addition to any room. As is so often the case, those which have seen a bit of action and have signs of some wear are now the most sought after and desirable.
In fact, so popular are these items that anyone seeking a leather steamer trunk is well-advised to register their interest using our free notification system - details below - to be sure not to miss out when we get a good example in stock.
