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.
