Richards Trunk Coffee Table by Timothy Oulton through Restoration Hardware

  • $2,900.00
Tax included.

After seemingly circling the globe, a canvas-clad steamer trunk landed at a famed European antiques market. It was battered and worn, but its careful construction and handsome detailing marked it as bespoke luggage, crafted in early 20th-century England for a traveler of discerning taste (a traveler whose name – according to the brass plate mounted above the latch – was Tom Richards). Plucked from potential obscurity, the trunk made its way to the workshop of Timothy Oulton, where it was painstakingly dismantled – every pin removed and measured, every hinge and brace scrutinized. And from that well-made, well-traveled trunk, a collection was born. Our polished aluminum version was inspired by the gleaming nose cones and fuselages of mid-20th-century aircraft, clad in a patchwork of polished aluminum panels accented with exposed steel screws.

  • Each piece is constructed in precisely the same manner as the original and aged to look as if it's seen epic journeys of its own
  • Wood frames are clad in polished aluminum, accented with steel screws
  • Braced with strips of aged solid wood trimmed with antiqued brass
  • Fitted with leather handles and corner protectors
  • Equipped with brass luggage latches
  • Features 2 hidden canvas-lined drawers that open on either side

  • Aluminum has a matte finish that's lightly distressed for a vintage look; intentional nicks, dings, small scratches and other imperfections are to be expected and add to the character and uniqueness of each item
