The detailing on this Pottery Barn trunk goes the extra mile to bring an antique feel to your space. It was distressed wood, buckles and locks and either a black or gold finish, adding a luxurious feel. There's so much functionality with this trunk, as it can also double as a side table, but if you just want it for storage, we love how you can also detach the table base. Stacked with your favorite coffee table books, we think this table can add a real vintage feel to your space.
