Campaign Furniture

by Breeze Giannasio in


So what is it you ask? Any furniture specifically made to breakdown or fold for ease of travel. It was designed to be packed up and carried on the march all the way back to the times of Julius Caesar.  British Army Officers are who made it what it is today though.  The most common item of campaign furniture is the chest of drawers, often referred to as a military chest or campaign chest. A standard campaign chest will be made of either mahogany or teak and break down into two sections with removable legs. The brass corners and strap work offer some protection and typify the distinctive ‘campaign look’.  I'm loving a fresh splash of bold color on relic pieces.  Recently I've seen a bunch of IKEA hacks for those who can't afford the real deal.  There's something out there for everyone!
