VanityCase

Vintage suitcases serve a better purpose than harboring moldy clothing and Grandpa’s Yankee card collection. For starters, add light bulbs and an accordion mirror to make a vanity or straps and shelving for a liquor cabinet. Floating along the wall, the suitcase looks like something out of a Dali painting, but in the real world, is mounted using French cleats.

The suitcase cabinets are designed by VanityCase, recently founded by curator and carpenter, Jean Barberis. Barberis scavenges the boroughs (mostly Queens) for vintage suitcases. Each item is one-of-a-kind, can be custom made, and is an exquisite storage solution for stylish urbanites and eccentrics.
