Tried and true, its sim­ple de­sign makes the cam­paign chair perfect for any room in the house.

Since the time of colo­nial Amer­ica, cam­paign chairs have been adored for their com­pact size and sim­ple de­sign.

Bri­tish fam­i­lies used them as they trav­eled far dis­tances and made a home in the New World. These pieces needed to pair rich de­signs with util­i­tar­ian pur­poses, which brought about an in­fi­nite va­ri­ety of in­no­va­tion that is still present to­day.

Mod­ern-day cam­paign chairs are light and eas­ily taken apart, re­ly­ing on a hand­ful of ma­te­ri­als. Some seats are cre­ated with only a few pieces of wood and a sin­gle piece of leather, while oth­ers use can­vas or even twine. While these chairs aren’t com­plex, their va­ri­ety is end­less.
