If you think the simplistic beauty of an ancient leather suitcase is the bee's knees, then the innovative designers at James Plumb Design have created the perfect chest of drawers for you.

Fit into metal towers, discarded suitcases get a second life as spacious slots, large enough to accommodate an intimidatingly large wardrobe. With the retro, worn appeal that items with a rich unknown history seem to carry, this wardrobe will be the crowning feature of any bedroom.

This suitcase chest of drawers is undeniably the most well traveled piece of furniture around. Some drawers still bare tags inscribed with various destinations dangling from their handles. James Plumb Design has once again managed to transform the overlooked and discarded, and transformed them into jaw-dropping conversation pieces.

Worn and travel-weary, the re-purposed suitcase drawers seduce you with the unknown stories they hold.
