In case you’re not familiar with the idea of campaign furniture, here’s what you should know about it. It appeared during the time of Julius Caesar and it was a type of furniture that could be easily broken down into pieces and transported on military campaigns. This way it was easier to carry and a way of taking comfort to go. Today it’s not used for the same purposes but it remained an interesting style that is still found on the market.
Ballard is a chair that shares those characteristics. It’s a campaign chair that still features the original particularities of the design. It was modeled after colonial British furniture of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and, even though it’s not used in military campaigns anymore, it would make a very interesting statement piece in any home.
The Ballard chair is crafted using Kikar wood, a small and thorny tree grown in India, and distressed buffalo leather. It has a simple frame that folds up for easy transport. It has pivoting joints, leather support strips and a reclining back. Because of its characteristics it would make a great choice for those who travel a lot or for those who like fishing. The chair measures : L23-3/4 x W23-3/4 x H31-1/2 inches and it costs $490. There’s also a matching ottoman that is sold separately.
