he Trunk Shop offers over 30 years of experience in Antique Trunk Restoration, new Trunk design and build, and new and antique parts.
We have a deep respect and appreciation for the antiquities, so our first priority is to maintain the historical integrity of all the pieces we work on, all the way from the iron metalwork down to the interior lining. With the careful use of common materials and time tested techniques, we bring the historical life back to your treasured heirlooms, so you may continue to enjoy them, for further generations to come. After years of trial, error, and a little elbow grease, we have adapted the best treatments for various woods, metals, and canvases, and can also transform other items of distinction. Just ask!

Many fabulous trunks have traveled in and out of our workshop. One of our favorites, and a world leader in high end 'travel-ware', is Louis Vuitton!
We're happy to have a few extra copies of Louis Vuitton : 100 Legendary Trunks, and Louis Vuitton : The Birth of Modern Luxury, both utterly facinating books, featuring the journey and success of the Vuitton family.
Fully illustrated and full of colour, these hardbound, 10" x 12" books showcase the innovative trunks they have made over the last 160 years.
These are "must have" books for any LV enthusiast or collector.
