It’s very common to see vintage accent pieces even in modern or contemporary spaces. They’re that thing that gives character to the space and that makes it feel cozy and inviting. A quite common trend is to use vintage luggage in interior home décor. There are lots of creative ways in which you can recycle and reuse these items. Here are some examples.

You could, for instance, stack several vintage suitcases on top of each other to create either a display for the room or a functional structure which you can use for storage. This type of old, retro or vintage accessories give the décor a personal touch. But there are also plenty of other options to choose from. For example, you can use a single vintage suitcase and you can place at the end of the bed, turning it into a bench/storage space. Also, two or three suitcases stacked one on top of the other can make a very charming nightstand for the bedroom.

Another option would be to use an old suitcase as a coffee table or simply for display. In this case it’s all about that old look, the worn finish and the design. It’s about the contrasts that you can create in a modern home décor and about the personal touch and charm that such an accent piece has. It’s why in most cases the suitcases are not modified or reconditioned but left as such so they can make a strong style statement.
