We Imagine Our Very Own Mr Crawley Writing Thoughtfully At This Secretary Trunk

Restoration_Trunk Apartment // Objects of Desire 

Somewhere between Elton John on tour and Mr Crawley while at war on Downton Abbey, this canvas-covered steamer trunk might be one of the best things we’ve ever seen. Although it’s kind of gigantic, it’s actually suited to New York apartments because it’s an entire office you can just close up and roll into a corner. It’s like the Murphy Bed of desks. The trunk is modeled after a 20th-century piece and was reproduced with great detail, down to the sizing of every pin and hinge. It’s just magnificent.
