It would be easy to mistake the Suitcase Chests as a storage area for luggage rather than a piece of furniture. The vintage suitcases are stacked up as though they were waiting to be taken away by their traveling owners. Yet that is not the case at all. Instead, the lovely luggage has been repurposed to become a collection of cabinets.
Created by designers Hannah Plumb and James Russell, who work together under the moniker JAMESPLUMB in the United Kingdom, the Suitcase Chests are one-of-a-kind creations. According to the designers, the Suitcase Chests "juxtapose practical function with their sculptural vision." Fitting neatly into customized metallic or wooden frameworks, they are given a neat aesthetic that would do justice to any office space, be it in the home or at the workplace.
