You won’t want to miss this brass trunk for sale, trust me. As the proud owner of two brass trunks (one small like this one and one that’s a bit larger), I’m a major fan of these versatile pieces but also know how difficult they are to come across. I purchased both of mine secondhand but don’t spot similar items too frequently!

Brass trunks are amazing because they work in so many different setups. Need to fill space in an empty corner? Place one there and use it to toss household essentials like towels and throw blankets. Want a fun alternative to your typical coffee table? Try using a brass trunk instead. In my former apartment, I did just that and always received tons of compliments–not to mention, the extra storage was an amazing bonus!

The tricky thing is that because these trunks are fairly rare and in high demand, they can often cost a pretty penny (I’m talking several hundreds of dollars). At $200, this Bazaar find isn’t cheap, but it’s much more affordable than other similar pieces I’ve seen, trust me!

No matter your personal style, you can make a brass trunk work for you. As the description for this item states, “It’s fancy and glam *and* boho.” I couldn’t agree more! Cozy up the look with the addition of a faux fur sheepskin draped on top, or embrace the vintage vibes by keeping it as is and letting it’s shape and fun accents do the talking. Either way, you won’t want to pass over this awesome find!
