Trunks are perfect for small spaces as they perform triple duty – storage, seating and as a table. In the living room, you can prop a fabric upholstered trunk as a vintage coffee table, in addition to using it as a pod for your magazines and newspapers. When you have guests over, move it around or push it against the wall for extra seating.
In the bedroom, place a trunk at the foot of the bed, and stash your extra pillows, sheets, and towels in it. You can also repurpose a smaller trunk as a nightstand. Just place it near your bed with a night lamp and a few books, to give your bedroom a warm cozy look.
