I’m on a mission to find stylish storage and that means searching for a campaign dresser. From the clean lines to the brass hardware, I am smitten.
Campaign furniture is portable furniture that was designed for the military to be easily transported. The recessed brass handles, like in this image from Emily Henderson, are not only gorgeous, they protect the pieces from being scuffed and damaged during transport.
The perfect mix of form and function, campaign furniture isn’t just for the military anymore. Kelly Wearstler brings the campaign dresser into the bathroom with this gorgeous vanity.
Forget built-ins and get creative with a campaign dresser in the kitchen, like in this image from Christine Chase.
Go bold with paint, like Lonny Magazine shared with us. Colorful storage units always add fun style to an otherwise functional piece of furniture.
Or do a fun two-tone effect, like this one from The Homemade Home.
If you are lucky enough to run across a vintage campaign dresser, you can update it with a good cleaning and a coat of paint like Innovative Interior did to this stunning blue beauty she uses to store extra linens.
If you’ve searched high and low for a vintage piece to no avail, don’t fret. See how you can get the look for much less by turning an Ikea cube into a campaign knockoff like Fuji Files did.
Looks like it’s time for me to start scouring Craigslist again for the perfect campaign dresser find.
