Campaign Bookshelves and Desk

20160607_165629

This 8′ by 8′ monster is made out of pine, brass and iron!
The design was influenced mid 1800’s British campaign furniture. This style focused on the ability for the furniture to travel, be practical, durable, yet with the materials and makers touch, were always as beautiful as they were functional.

As these are currently installed in my apartment, I wanted them to follow me to my new house (still under construction). Each 2′ by 4′ section easily comes apart, as does the desk, which is actually three separate sections itself.
The desk features a large 4′ by 2′ fold down work surface which is supported by two large brass friction hinges. The computer cart sits on 4 heavy iron casters and is supported by iron industrial piping. (more photos later).

Enjoy!
