A trunk is a timeless piece of furniture, but simply reinterpreted in this acrylic turns an item
that is typically an antique piece into a modern find. What is interesting about the trunk
it provides the opportunity for the display of artifacts, great textiles, a beautiful vase, or
more even whimsical objects, while still serving as a side table or coffee table.

The trunk has brushed stainless steel fittings with rope handles.  The overall dimensions are
32” wide x 19” deep and 19” high (exterior height).  For a larger coffee table, gang two
together.  The acrylic trunk is a practical solution to storage as well as a place upon
which to rest books, cocktails and accessories.
If you own a beautiful rug the airiness of the trunk will allow the rug to be showcased.  It
might also serve as storage trunk in which you could place extra bedding or blankets..
