Louis Vuitton trunks and travel bags make regular appearances in design photos – sometimes as props, but frequently as furniture. Vintage Vuitton can serve as cocktail tables, bedside tables or, in the case of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s recently-sold home in Beverly Hills, a custom-made safe.
