This photo above is a bit more funky than what designer Ralph Lauren had in mind...but suitcases are still very collectible and used in homes for finishing touches, end tables, novelty pieces.

How fun! Makes me think of a Stateside Indiana Jones:).
Very cool! I recently came into the possession of a vintage suitcase that has been "repaired" with tape of many varieties including duct tape. Are there any resources that I can reference to restore it myself?
Yes, a few of these suitcases on top of one another look lovely for an end table. Another way to create that feel is by stacking old hat boxes one on top of another with the smallest on top and largest on bottom. I have one suitcase displayed and open filled with shabby fabrics inside and some fabrics draped on it. It really looks lovely. Rita @ TesoroFino.com
