The Richards’ Secretary Trunk from Restoration Hardware is a collapsible and portable office in a box. The vintage-inspired piece is modeled after an antique canvas-clad steamer ship trunk found at a European market. The trunk is said to have belonged to a traveler by the name of Tom Richards, hence the name for the collection.

The intricately detailed piece holds true to its original construction and is aged to resemble a well-traveled piece. The trunk, constructed of wood framing is covered in a water-resistant hand-waxed canvas and detailed with retro hand-hammered pins. It is trimmed with aged bamboo and antiqued brass, serving as decoration for the detailed piece. 

The aged luggage trunk opens to reveal storage and a fold-out desk making it a portable office that can be closed to maximize space when it is not in use. This eclectic gem retails for $4,495, a price many would pay to own it. Stats for Packable Luggage Offices Trending: Older & Mild
