Decorating Idea: Vintage Luggage

I get some of my best interior design ideas while researching past eras and visiting antique stores and flea markets.  Included in my favorite objects from the past are luggage sets. Sure luggage has come a far way since the 1960s,  and thank god for the advancements in the convenience area (can you image your biggest suitcase without wheels, yikes!),  but why are the majority of suitcases today so displeasing to the eye? That is a question to be examined on another day…

Now, I would like to take this time to discuss a cool way to display vintage luggage while also making it functional. Check out these gorgeous images of vintage luggage decor done right!

Make a chic bedside table out of colorful vintage luggage. Also adding that “wow” with a gorgeous pop of color!

Also great at the foot of your bed as a place to display art and books.

A great way to create extra table top space and  storage in your bathroom!

A beautiful piece of vintage luggage reincarnated as an equally beautiful chair. Can you say sustainability?!

And last but not least, vintage luggage can be useful for every member of the family!
