Luggage love

Wednesday, 9 November 2011

I am a big fan of a good old vintage suitcase. 

I actually went into the amazing Re-Create shop in Woodstock last week in the hope of converting some of my beautiful old-school suitcases into chairs, however at R7,000 a pop I had to do a little U turn.

I have been brainstorming clever ways in which I can incorporate these in my home, because rght now they really are just getting in the way. Here are a few... Although not mad about the entire 'look and feel' in some pics, the idea of where or how they have used the luggage is clever, I think, and certainly solves my problem of shoving them in my store room.

Any other ideas?

  1. We have a huge green chest as our coffee table :)

  2. Do you have something on top of the chest (like glass or a tray)?

  3. We use ours just as is - with no glass on top! Love it!

  4. Sounds lovely :) Thanks guys x
