1980s personal-sized curve-top trunk re-covered in royal blue heavyweight cotton duck canvas, bound in vegetable-tanned four-ounce leather with brass edging on front panel. Oak slats are finished with a satin varnish. Hardware is all original.
Cool, collectible, and fantastically versatile, these are trunks with a past--and a glowing future. Each wonderful antique has been meticulously hand-restored and repurposed as a one-of-a-kind work of art by Randall Barbera, who uses premium leather, rare woods, and centuries-old building and refinishing techniques to create the exquisite centerpieces here. "Punctuating the original design, and then taking it one step further to enhance its personality, is the ultimate goal," says Barbera, who spends a full six weeks on each. No two are alike.
