ANTIQUE TRUNK RESTORATION & DESIGN is all about antique trunks, steamer trunks, vintage trunks, antique chests, wooden chests, toy chests, storage chests and just about every make, model and vintage of each. Our mission is not only to refurbish, restore, repurpose and preserve these heritage pieces but to give them new life, with contemporary design, allowing for endless home, office and display application. Each and every antique trunk that we work on becomes a transformed, stand-alone, one-of-a-kind work of art that is not only an eye-catching addition to your environment, but a useful and practical, long lasting statement of individuality.
While we won't always strictly adhere to historical accuracy when re-designing our antique trunks (although we do utilize the same methodology, tools and build techniques originally used to create them) we take artistic license to make them better, in every way-stronger and reinforced, more durable, more appealing and yes, fancier and more beautiful than the way they appeared when originally built. The original condition, size, shape and usually the hardware of each antique trunk often provides the inspiration to best embellish and turn an antique trunk into a one-of-a-kind piece and this is when the fun starts for us because no two of our antique trunks are ever the same. Each antique trunk and steamer trunk becomes a stand-alone piece, refurbished, re-designed and restored to last for at least another 100 years.
You won't get a history lesson here about antique trunks and we won't try to convince you that we are better than "the next guy" because what we do is entirely different with our antique trunks. How to restore a steamer trunk or how to refinish a steamer trunk are not questions that you will be likely to find answers to here. What you will find here are truly unique antique trunks, beautiful pieces of antique furniture, one-of-a-kind decorative and useful additions for a multitude of design applications that will be centerpiece anchors for any room, period. We offer each antique trunk, steamer trunk, antique chest, toy chest, vintage trunk, storage chest and every kind of trunk that we work on with pride and hope that you enjoy owning one of our restored and re-designed antique trunks as much as we have enjoyed working on each of them!
For the trade, we offer custom work as well and are always excited and ready to work with specific vision for any given project and within your time parameters.
