A few years back I scoured our local flea markets and antique shops for a vintage steamer trunk. My goal was to find the right one to use as a coffee table but I ended up with a new coffee table made of mango wood. I still dream of a vintage steamer trunk in my house some day and found 10 ideas to keep the inspiration going.

I love the idea of a dark steamer trunk in the bedroom for use as an end table. It’s just the right height.
Trunks are great at the foot of the bed for holding extra blankets and linens.
This is perhaps my favorite steamer trunk in this post. Although you can rest anything on the top due to its rounded lid, its simplicity makes it strikingly beautiful.
This one shows its age with a little wear and tear. I love its rustic appeal.
Choose a new steamer trunk for a coffee table if you don’t like your furniture to show its age.

Steamer trunks are not only pretty to look at, but they serve great functional purpose. Here, a vintage steamer trunk serves as a place to keep shoes and boots out of sight.
I’ve never seen a trunk quite like this one. It’s great for a narrow space.
This. This is the type of trunk I’d like to bring home with me some day. I’ve got a spot for it near my front door. I guess it’s back to the flea market for some more treasure hunting.
