Go for Coffee-table style trunks
This style has an Italian influence on its design. These trunks can be best defined as strikingly simple and silently elegant. Often referred to as cabinets, they are placed as centerpieces of sitting arrangements or at the foot of the bed. They have three primary functions:
- Cabinet storage
- Coffee-table top
- Blanket and linen storage
As the name suggests, they have multiple chests or cabinets for storage. They may have a fixed or hinged top with deep storage space. Made from cedar, oak, or other tough wood, they are deep-stained in a glossy or matte finish and have raised designs.
Being of attractive and modest character, coffee-table trunks will be useful in compact homes that need storage-cum-display cabinets. Functional furniture in light shades, a carpet, and a comfortable sofa or bed -- that's the desired imagery of interiors for coffee-table trunks.
