Furniture with Style & Substance

At Vintage Trunks & Chests we carefully source antique & vintage coffee table trunks & storage chests to complement a range of interior design styles. Whether you're searching for a unique piece with timeless design and traditional craftsmanship, or are shopping for ethically conscious furniture with style and substance that will last a lifetime, we're here for you!

It gives us great joy to rescue these beautiful pieces of history, which are often in a very poor state of repair, and do our utmost to restore them to their former glory. Working with care, expertise and attention to fine detail we put our hearts and souls into bringing them back to life.

We choose conservation over restoration where possible. Any necessary restoration work is completed honestly and sympathetically respecting the integrity of the individual piece. We are mindful about the materials we use and choose reclaimed or traditionally made, locally sourced, parts where possible to replace and repair. Simon has a penchant for fixing locks so most items come with a working lock and key! Each item is hand finished using traditional, time honoured methods.

By buying a repurposed antique or vintage item you can help to reduce the negative impact on our environment of the throw-away culture of modern day society - Vintage Is Green.. Join the Revolution!

Thanks for stopping by.. we hope you enjoy our work :)

Care instructions

All our items are hand finished in several coats of a quality wax polish. A wax finish naturally enhances the wood and revives and protects the original patina, however it doesn't have the same protection as a lacquered finish (the type you may find on shop bought furniture). So to keep your item in tip top condition it's advised to wax it periodically depending on the wear and tear it receives, the suggestion for a coffee table is twice a month. Only the top need be done with a clear wax according to the instructions on the product used. You may also wish to wax the whole piece every 6-12 months to maintain the finish. This will feed, hydrate and protect the wood, maintain the depth of colour and help your furniture to stay looking great!
