Boston Magazine: Covet

Boston Magazine’s December issue features Weston Table's 1910 Vintage Louis Vuitton Steamer Trunk

Long before its handbags, jewelry, and shoes took the fashion world by storm, Louis Vuitton was known for just one thing: luxury luggage, toted by stylish Parisians aboard trains and ships. Rediscover the French brand’s golden age closer to home at Weston Table, where this circa-1910 steamer trunk is on display. Outfitted with brass hardware and leather upholstery bearing the designer’s signature logo, the vintage treasure is just one of many period pieces you’ll find at Weston’s recently opened home-goods boutique. Display the trunk in your living room or use it for storage at the foot of your bed—but whatever you do, leave it home when you flee the city this winter for warmer climes. Sure, you could stash your vacation must-haves in its roomy interior, but do you really trust the TSA with this gem? We think not. —ANDREA TIMPANO
