Detail of The Week




Just last week, I came across this super fun dressing area set, via Graham and Green, and instantly fell for the details on these luggage–like designs. These pieces are ideal for those who enjoy flexible living or have a small living space, yet want a chic look. This set, called The Orient Express, consists of a storage trunk, dressing table, wardrobe, and jewelry box. (all sold separately) Lovely, timeless pieces, in such pretty, muted color tones...perhaps evocative of that on–vacation feeling? :)

I also love the luggage look as end tables, or actual vintage luggage pieces, stacked in various ways for different vignettes. Round hat boxes are my favorites! {a previous post here} For another fabulous, luggage–like design, though in the form of a portable office, visit Dress, Design, Decor, here.

  2. I love all the lovely side tables, coffee tables, bureaus, etc. masquerading as old fashioned traveling trucks that have been popping up all over the place lately. My favorite though is the amazing (and huge!) trunk from Restoration Hardware that opens up to reveal a secretary desk!

  3. Very amazing, indeed! I wonder if my local RH has one set up -- I'm sure it's quite the piece in real life.

  10. I really like the look of these pieces. I'm very drawn to warm wood tones, and I just can't get enough of the dressing table! I think it is so smart the way it is designed.. I love it and I want it!
