5 of the best steamer trunks for superyachts

1 of 5 1/5

Tough on the outside: Ghurka

Boxy steamer trunks have upsides the interior design world is just waking up to. They can keep most unruly stuff unharmed and unwrinkled over many a nautical mile, plus, they do double duty as benches, desks, wardrobes and more. Here is Louis Postel's pick of the best.

*Tough on the outside: Ghurka *

One day in the early 1970s, Marley Hodgson came across a collection of boots, belts and backpacks belonging to a British Ghurka commander at an estate sale. Despite the Ghurka soldiers’ reputation for toughness, this centuries-old leather gear felt surprisingly soft, even after all that time. Shortly thereafter, Hodgson designed the first of his famous Ghurka collections in Connecticut. This trunk/desk, made in collaboration with noted Italian luggage maker Bertoni, comes in French bull leather with studded trim, cotton twill lining, hand-painted stripes and brass palladium hardware finishes.

$19,500, ghurka.com
