Have you ever created the perfect idea of something in your mind that anything short of that PERFECT something just wouldn't cut it? Well, that's what I've done. I think I've doomed myself to disappointment from the moment I laid eyes on THIS:
My husband and I both agree it's gorgeous (well, he may not have used that word) but a little out of our price range. It might also be just a tad too large for our space, but I'd settle for his slightly smaller and less expensive little brother. : )
The runner up in this love affair would be this guy:
Mayfair Steamer Leather Trunk by Restoration Hardware - $1695
Once again, out of budget and a little large, but he too has a little brother. As a side note, don't you just adore that lamp?!!
Close third and fourth:
Raffia Trunk by Pottery Barn - $799
Expedition Trunk by Pottery Barn - $1299
I'm hooked on these 19th-century traveler's companions. Talk about bringing character and a conversation piece to a room! As my wish list grows, these guys are staying pretty close to the top.
