I absolutely love this trunk. I requested my own choice of motif, Paula was so helpful. I emailed across to her ideas of pictures that I liked, she sent me back her design ideas. If I wasn’t happy with the motifs, she was happy to continue until I was. The entire process was fantastic, I was kept updated on how it was all going, shipping and delivery was on time. I was completely satisfied with the whole service this shop provided. Well done Paula, keep up the good work. Highly recommended.

What a wonderful gift this was for my daughter's wedding! A very special, customized wedding trunk. My daughter and her new husband loved it and will cherish is for many, many years to come!

This item came exactly as pictured. It's beautifully painted. Be patient with delivery. It went through many facilities before it got to me, but that was not the seller's fault. I love it!

THIS IS THE COOLEST TRUNK! I just got a Cape House and we will be using it for a coffee table. The whole family thinks it looks awesome/unique and we are excited to display it in the living room!
Came in perfect condition and looks SUPER!
I'm sure friends and family will want to get one too when they see it!
Thank you so much!!
What is arborala? That's me: Paula, born 1977 in Berlin, hotel management apprenticeship, detective commissioner candidate, mother of two children, Master in Scandinavian Studies, development aid project manager, sales manager for a manufacturer of wooden playground equipment and now a mixture of designer and artisan. Sounds wild and chaotic? In a single sentence for sure, but spread over a few decades, it's half as bad. :)
A few years ago, my wish to work independently grew stronger and stronger. And so I threw myself headlong into this adventure and I didn't regret it. Creating something directly with my hands and bringing joy to other people is what motivates me every day. OK, not literally every day, life is not an Instagram Story after all.
Today I live with my family and a few dogs, cats, chickens and geese on a former farm south of Berlin. What used to be stables for cows and fodder is now my workshop. It's there and at my desk (which coincidentally also serves as a kitchen table), where the things are created that I offer here in my shop. True and authentic.
My three Etsy shops offer customizable vintage design furniture (https://www.etsy.com/de/shop/arborala), delightful modern, vintage and custom stencils (https://www.etsy.com/de/shop/STENCILdelight) and decoration and design objects (https://www.etsy.com/de/shop/arboralaOriginals).
Many thanks for reading! If you feel like it, drop by at my Instagram for a chat!
