One of the best things about coffee table trunks is their ability to combine the functionality of a coffee table with the convenience of a storage trunk, often in a uniquely beautiful way.
Sizes, styles, and designs can range from those that take their design influence from traditional steamer trunks or hope chests, to more unique twists on the typical coffee table trunk that go fully rustic or fully modern.

The major difference between a coffee table trunk and a true, typical storage trunk is that coffee table trunks have a flat surface on top to hold typical coffee table items, such as (as a wild and crazy example) a cup of coffee. They also tend to be slightly thinner, because your traditional storage chest can be a bit bulky to place in today’s living rooms.
However, coffee table trunks also have their drawbacks, including the need to clear the coffee table top any time you need to access anything stored inside the trunk part. This can be a bit of a pain, especially if you have something stored inside that you need to access any time company is over.
However, the design and function of coffee table trunks usually outweighs the concessional “Oh, Dang It!!!” moment when you realize that what you need to get is buried under the cups of coffee and the snacks that you have just served. Plus, some of the designs have thought that through and have the store bin(s) accessible without having to lift the top of the coffee table.
