Splurge or Save: Pottery Barn Faux Leather Dorm Trunk & More Affordable Dorm Trunks

I love a good trunk. Years ago when I got my first apartment, I found this gorgeous trunk tucked away in the back of a Pier 1 (remember that store? #RIP) and took it home with me. Many (many, many) years later, I still have it, except now it’s full of kids games and sits in the living room. They are such an easy way to store a lot of things without it looking like it’s storage.

To this day, I still get compliments on that old trunk and that’s why this Pottery Barn faux leather dorm trunk stood out to me. It’s perfect, not just for a dorm room, but any space where you need to corral the things in a chic, stylish way.

While the Pottery Barn trunk is gorgeous and excellent quality, you may be looking for something more budget-friendly, or of a slightly different style, so I’ve rounded up some other options in case you want to shop the look.
