Vintage suitcases get a second chance
Past times have always had a strong impact on many of us. It’s strange how the time runs out for us. How we change. But even more peculiar is that the objects are much more durable and solid than the people and remain present, while their inventors and manufacturers are long gone.
Maybe that’s where the fascination of the old things, the antiques, hides. They all have a special, unmistakable aura, which gives every ambiance romance and nostalgia. That’s exactly the case when it comes to vintage suitcases.
Vintage suitcases with an authentic look steal the show
Such suitcases have a distinctive character, rough texture and even a specific smell of melancholy and adventure. No wonder they are among the most popular items used in home decorating. You will not only find these charismatic suitcases in your basement, but also at flea markets and in antique shops. These are available in different sizes and different colors. Some are plain and worn, others striped or classic patterned. There is something for every taste.
Thanks to their relatively hard housing, vintage suitcases are suitable as cupboards, dressers, chests, storage boxes and even dog beds. As versatile and multifunctional as they are, old suitcases very often get their second chance and become original DIY projects not only indoors, but also outdoors.
