While campaign chests have been trendy for the past few years, their roots are in the battlefield, not the blogosphere. This classic has seen a resurgence in popularity and moved from military campaigns to stylish homes thanks to its clean lines and versatile style.

You'll know a campaign chest (or desk) by its signature hardware, originally added to protect the edges of these pieces as they were moved. Colorful versions (and look-alike Ikea RAST hacks) are classy attention-grabbers, while white, black, and wood versions play a more subdued but strong supporting role.
