Ok jumped into the world of LV Trunks...

 By: pfang56 : February 19th, 2021-05:10
Hi all,

Following many wonderful posts here - I jumped in the world of LV Trunks and purchased a newer model.

Would love to get some inspiration on how you use your trunk, and perhaps any ideas on any artwork, accessories, or other creative approaches you have for the trunk?

At this point, it's completely brand new and pristine without any artwork, monogramming, stickers, etc. I get a sense it may have been a little non-traditional as most probably go for Vintage (could
Be the next purchase?). It also has four drawers inside for placing things (we are considering games, books, etc) but would like some ideas (sadly watches are best kept in the safe smile

Appreciate any guidance you can provide! Below is a photo of the item at hand...



These types of steamer trunks were once covered with stickers of exotic places visited....

Not sure you'd want to do that but .....

You can even buy vintage reproduction stickers... (google-- reproduction travel stickers)

And stickers were messages...

Good idea on vintage stickers..

 By: pfang56 : February 21st, 2021-01:16
Will look into some of these options. I am wondering if I should consider "painting" or "applying" some things?

Many thanks for the advice!


Try this😁

I never understood why people would buy a trunk they can't even fit into. I guess after he's done they can, I suppose.

It does seem like it could fit a body pretty easily wink



Really nice

I actually quite like it as it is to be fair.

Could you share some photos of the trunk opened ? To see how the books etc fit


Hi there...

Below are some photos of the innards. I recognise there are several models out there, but this model has a front opening with four very usable drawers, in addition to a top storage space.

We chose this one because it just seemed like a bigger convenience with the drawers in the front - as they don't require us to pull the glass top off every time to access items.

Hope you also consider this!



I really like the way it opens

 By: Watch_kha_wen : February 21st, 2021-11:03
I think it indeed for well as a coffee table so long that you don’t need to remove the glass part though

It makes the lounge area pretty trendy tho


I totally love this idea, I've been very tempted to get one too in Italy...Personalizing it over time with objects that are meaningful to you is a superb idea, these are real keepers for life! ;-) Enjoy.

Put stuff in from all over the world

Your post reminded me to consider getting a humidor!

 By: pfang56 : February 21st, 2021-01:22
Excellent inspiration. Many thanks!


Leave it like it is

It looks fantastic, the bronze parts will get patina and the wood becomes darker.
If I were you I would not add any stickers.
Great purchase!

agree with that... beautiful as it is

Many thanks!

Some part of me is considering to embellish the outside with painted stickers from cities our family has visited...but I think keeping this trunk as pristine as possible is something we are leaning towards!



How are you liking that Aston?

No message body got traded in for a convertible...

 By: pfang56 : February 21st, 2021-01:26
I got pressured by my daughter to consider a convertible!

I looked a bit around for a DB11 convertible but found it was too difficult. Ended up trading for a Ferrari Portofino and have not looked back!

Thanks for the note..



Are you hiding inside the trunk?

 By: sirbogey : February 20th, 2021-02:10
Looks nice, slightly too big for my taste but seems to match the rest of your furniture... 

Ha ha ha!!

 By: pfang56 : February 21st, 2021-01:29
Could be a good consideration - as shared in a previous post could fit a body wink

For this model with the front drawers - it seemed the 110 was the only size available. After having it sit in the home for about a week now, it's settled in nicely with the surroundings.

I guess the size adjustment is much like the first days when wearing a larger model watch for the first time. Daunting at first but enjoyable at the end!


Reminds me of the Joe Vs The Volcano movie :-)

A treasure must be in it.
