Industrial Loft - Trunks

When it comes to industrial style storage options, the vintage looks and generous proportions of metal floor trunks and wooden storage boxes just can’t be beaten. When loft living was still a new concept and the artists of urban areas like NYC’s SoHo district were still deep in the process of converting old factories and warehouses into large, livable spaces, the challenge to keep clutter controlled was at its greatest. Without built-in cabinets or a garage outside to store items, the battle against clutter was a heated one that saw the vintage style floor trunk and wooded storage box both becoming icons of the style. The storage trunk offers a particularly appealing utility and flexibility, given that it not only can hold serious amounts of clothing or other items but can also be used quite easily as a coffee table or makeshift console at the same time.
