Nursery Trends: On the Campaign Trail

Campaign furniture has been all over the place lately—on Pinterest, blogs and even showing up in some of our favorite furniture lines. Campaign furniture was originally created to be easily taken apart or folded up for easy travel. From this functionality sprang great design—pieces that have clean lines, sturdy hardware and practicality. These elements make campaign furniture very versatile. One of our favorite uses for campaign dressers is in the nursery, as a changing table.

This colorful campaign chest is painted different colors to match the little girl’s room—genius!

Lonny Magazine featured this vintage green campaign piece. This would work so great in a nursery—all it needs is a changing pad on top!

Of course, there are nursery-specific furniture lines that have hopped on the campaign style bandwagon as well. In 2010, Nurseryworks debuted its Uptown collection, featuring a campaign style changing table.

This campaign chest is actually leather with rivets, making it feel rustic and masculine. This piece would be perfect in a little boy’s nursery, and it would last for years and years.

Does anyone know where I can find the leather campaign chest with rivets/nail heads shown or was it a DIY project? The Restoration Hardware one is so expensive.
