We can’t stop campaigning the campaign chest. These stylish pieces were one of the top trends at the 2014 Spring High Point Market, and it’s not hard to see why.
The distinct look of the campaign style chest comes from a long history that dates back to the Ancient Romans and the reign of Julius Cesar. The campaign chest was modernized and popularized by the British, who crafted these chests to be lightweight, easy-to-assemble and aesthetically appealing. The name was derived from the portable design used for military campaigns during the Georgian and Victorian periods, and they were constructed from tough woods such as mahogany and teak.
The campaign chest design may have been born out of a need for durability, convenience and comfort, but the style was adopted and remains relevant to this day thanks to its elegant beauty and simplicity.
A traditional design makes this campaign chest versatile while the bold navy blue color gives it a chic look and feel, allowing the brass hardware to really pop.
Other bold colors, like this vibrant green, make the campaign chest a fabulous accent for transitional, contemporary and modern style interiors.
From foyers and living rooms to bedrooms and bathrooms, the campaign chest can add character and sleek style to almost any area in the home.
