Campaign Trail

At quintessential duckeggBLUE we have always admired and adored Campaign Furniture and the enduring appeal and ingeniousness of its origins. Any furniture that can be dismantled and folded down could be described as Campaign Furniture but it is usually associated with highly fashioned pieces used by the British Army in the 19th and early 20th century.

Used by officers of high social position and often ingeniously crafted for ease of travel and transportation, Campaign Furniture included everything from four poster beds, chairs, washstands,tables and desks even collapsible candlesticks, games and telescopes! Of course the Campaign Chest remains the most recognisable and perhaps the most essential…

Campaign Furniture is often distinguished by inventive methods of dismantling and breaking down, thus creating many unusual and completely unique pieces.

As 20th century progressed with the rise of the motor car and the changing nature of war, the use of Campaign Furniture in the army decreased and instead became popular in safaris, shooting parties and elite sporting events. Similarly, Campaign pieces have now come to signal a certain effortless luxury and worldly nonchalance when displayed in modern homes.

Perfectly suited to a variety of interiors, Campaign Furniture has also become synonymous with excellence in craftsmanship with light weight appeal, versatility and always a nod to a most adventurous past. We currently have a superb Campaign Chest that seriously will not last long! So do visit in store today or maybe just here
