The Palmer & Penn opened in 2005 and has always specialised in antique, authentic, rare and unique French vintage designer luggage brands and items that are extremely hard to find. We are the only location in Australia providing these articles and among one of the few sites in the entire world.
As the name implies, we carry an extensive selection of vintage designer luggage and also offer a personalised in-home service so you can see our various trunks put to use in your home. Our team has a vast knowledge about all of our products so we can tell you their history.
One hundred and fifty years ago, beautiful luggage artfully-designed and expertly-crafted by famous trunk makers were a requirement for the wealthy upper classes for fantastic journeys to exotic locations. "Getting there was not as important as how you got there.”
In modern times these exquisite pieces of luggage are best enjoyed as stunning decorator pieces in the home and office. Steamer wardrobes and courier trunks are perfectly proportioned as beautiful coffee tables; cabin and hat trunks make ideal side tables or blanket boxes at the base of the bed.
You can be the judge, though. We will bring various pieces of our vintage designer luggage to your home with our personalised in-home service so that you can witness them in use as coffee tables, end tables, blanket boxes, or any other piece of furniture that suits your specific needs. Each and every piece of vintage designer luggage we offer is sure to make a statement in your home.
Keeping the Originality of our Vintage Designer Luggage
Our aim at the Palmer & Penn is to enhance the aged beauty of these exceptional trunks without tampering with their originality. Therefore, while the trunks are meticulously cleaned, and the brass fixtures fastidiously polished to a lustrous glow, we refrain from adding new "spare parts." This ensures the integrity of each trunk remains intact and its potential as a valuable investment item is unrestricted.
