Campaign furniture is an umbrella term for the portable items of furniture used by the military in the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It is comprised of a huge number of objects, from chairs to chests, wardrobes to washstands and games tables to camp beds. A number of celebrated British furniture makers created pieces of campaign furniture, elevating it beyond its roots in functional, army-based design to desirable, collectible decor that continues to add a beautiful, innovative touch to homes today.

What to look for when you shop for antique campaign furniture

When the demand for campaign furniture was at its peak, there were several companies that pioneered the trend, and these are worth keeping in mind if this eye-catching and interesting furniture is what you are looking for. These companies were highly varied, too, as they entered into a market that was quite unlike most others. Luggage manufacturers such as Day & Son, J.W. Allen, Ross & Co Dublin and Hill & Millard all expanded their ranges to include items of campaign furniture.

Antique campaign furniture has enjoyed such a wide selection of contributing manufacturers, all of whom brought their own unique flair to the functional style, meaning there’s something for everyone amongst their incredibly varied output. So the only real question is, which one will you choose?

How to style your campaign furniture

Whether you need an occasional table, an armchair or a chest of drawers, if you’d like your home to feature classic elements of functional, aesthetically appealing design, campaign furniture is a great place to start your search. Adopt a stunning, historically rich trunk as a coffee table and allow its richly toned wood and beautiful patina to bring antique appeal to your sitting room.

Any bedroom or dressing area will be perfectly complemented by a set of campaign chest of drawers or a butler’s tray repurposed as a useful, quirky bedside table. If you are in the market for seating, campaign seating encompasses everything from eminently usable loungers that recline elegantly and take pride of place in the centre of your sitting room to director’s-style chairs that fold down efficiently to be stored away and used as and when you need them. These are an excellent option if you are short on space but don’t want that to get in the way of your antique collecting; campaign style is a great example of antique furniture that can work to your needs.
