Lord knows what travelers in then olden-days found to fill their huge trunks. There were no gadgets, no need for power adapters and not even a pair of oversized, padded sneakers to take up space. Even a bustling crinoline could, I’m sure, be collapsed for efficient storage.

These days, though, it’s common to pack two cases: one for clothes, and one for all the technical gubbins essential for a bearable vacation. Despite its name, then, the Mayfair Steamer Secretary Trunk is more suited for the modern day than the cruise-trips of the past, with space for a desktop computer along with enough shelves, drawers and cubby-holes to store everything else.

In reality, the $3,000 trunk is probably useless for actual travel. You’d need two or three servants just to lift the thing down the front doorstep, and the famously delicate iMac screen would be a pile of shattered shards as soon as you hit the cobbled street on those tiny casters. As a home office, though, this handmade, brass-nailed and cigar-leather unit is wonderful: there is even cable-management behind the canvas-covered panels.

It could all get a little Alice in Wonderland, though. Close this up and you’ll see a giant suitcase, complete with handle, standing at over six-foot-four. May we suggest keeping a small bottle of Bourbon secreted in one of the many drawers, labeled, of course, with the legend “Drink Me.
