Campaign Trail January 2019 – High Point, NC – Bespoke furniture manufacturer Jonathan Charles leads the way for a revival on campaign-style furniture in their latest collection. Influenced by 19th and 20th century originals historically made for British military generals who relied on the furniture’s quick assembly and ease of mobility, the aptly titled Campaign Collection incorporates classic design elements – brass corners, strapwork handles, X frames – into modern silhouettes that speak to an elevated form of travel-inspired luxury furniture. Black croc-embossed leather and rich Santos rosewood reign supreme in the collection’s palette, while white brass accentuates the iconic hardware of the style and soft gray leather adds levity to the dark colors.
Each piece is handmade by artisans to bear the signature of Jonathan Charles’ craftsmanship: meticulous attention to detail, handmade elements, and brilliant finishes. With an in-house foundry, Jonathan Charles’ team of artisans can make all hardware, from the door handles down to the screws, for a truly one-of-a-kind original.
