What is the deal with our obsession with stacked vintage suitcases and steamer trunks?  You see it all the time, but it never gets old, does it?

A friend recently told me about an idea she had seen on Designsponge this past spring, where they converted a vintage suitcase into a coffee table.  (See it here.)  She said she was going to give it a try!

As for me, I haven’t yet found my perfect vintage trunk, so I’ll keep looking….

Alors, à bientôt,
