ANTIQUE TRUNK RESTORATION & DESIGN offers a very special and completely unique line of one-of-a kind, repurposed antique steamer trunks - refurbished, restored and re-designed genuine antique trunks. The look, feel and re-designs which we infuse into every antique trunk bring history forward, as each appears to be brand new! You will find just about every style, make and model of antique trunks, steamer trunks, antique chests, storage trunks and vintage trunks here, all of which are hand-crafted, one at a time, re-purposed as beautiful, practical and useful home design accent pieces and these pieces of antique furniture are also at home in the office and are great for use as display pieces.
For interior designers, we also offer custom work and with your direction and ideas, can produce (or reproduce) any of our antique trunks in your choice of style, color, shape or size. If you see a trunk on these pages that you imagine would integrate into a current project, but only if it were recovered in a certain color, or fabric, or size, please let us know. We are always excited to work with specific vision and are able to focus our efforts to work within your time parameters for any projects you may be currently working on.
While we won't always adhere strictly to historical accuracy when re-designing our antique trunks (although we do utilize the same methodology, tools and build technique originally used to create them) we take artistic license to try and 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 us with 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 another 100 years at least.
You won't get a history lesson here about antique trunks and we won't try and convince you that we are better than "the next guy", because what we do is completely different than most. 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 your home, office or display applications that will be centerpieces in any room, period. We offer each antique trunk, steamer trunk, antique chest, toy chest, storage trunk, storage chest and every kind of trunk that we work on, with pride, and hope that you enjoy owning one of our redesigned and restored antique trunks as much as we have enjoyed working on each of them !
