When it comes to choosing classic furniture styles for your home, it doesn’t get much more timeless than campaign furniture. Centuries ago, campaign furniture was built for the British military and could be deconstructed and rebuilt for travel. Today it is often characterized by clean lines, brass or gold corner hardware, and can be finished in any color under the sun.

Personally I can’t get enough of it — I already have a white campaign dresser and the hardwood campaign desk featured below but I could totally get on board with campaign nightstands as well. In years past I’ve stalked affordable campaign furniture on Craigslist and repainted it myself. But if you’re not the DIY type, you’ll be happy to know that campaign furniture is definitely having a moment in the spotlight right now, as I’ve spotted it at retailers ranging from Anthropologie to Target. Here are 10 of my favorite campaign furniture finds at the moment:


Navy campaign desk


Yellow lacquered campaign nightstand

What do you think of campaign furniture? Do you have a campaign desk or dresser chez vous? What other furniture styles do you consider totally timeless?

  1. I’ve been stalking Craigslist like crazy lately. A gal here in Kansas City just found both a campaign dresser and a few bamboo chairs for an insanely low price. Gotta get to the good stuff fast! That dresser from Land of Nod is soooo gorgeous, but a little out of the my price range at the moment. These are all so good!!

  2. Thank you for sharing the Anthro pieces! Didn’t think they’d dabble in campaign, but I love it!

    I am v. on board. The one last thing I want for my living room is a white campaign dresser….someday!

  3. These are all such great picks! I’m a sucker for campaign furniture too – right now we have a white campaign desk and campaign night stands that I DIY’d! I also added brass corner brackets to some white frames to make campaign-style frames in our living room!
