I've always wanted to have a stack of gorgeous vintage luggage as a nice end table. It's still on my "want to have list" and keep my eyes peeled for some nice ones at yard sales.
I love the idea of a vintage luggage chest by the foot of the bed. My parents used to have one they used as a coffee table.. and now that the husband and I are moving I'll have to start looking into where that chest ran of to... :)xo ~Cara
