This stunning campaign desk from Authentic Models will provide the suitable décor and storage space needed for any office or home. The desk was inspired by historical voyages throughout Indian and Burma during the 1800’s; in which explorers would need the appropriate storage for carrying the minimum but necessary amount of supplies such as clothing to survive the harsh weather conditions in the area. In the earlier part of the year temperatures can reach over 35 degrees, whereas towards the end of the year temperatures can fall below 15 degrees. They would also need weapons for hunting and protection from the dangerous animals that make their home in the region. Additionally they would use these trunks to carry tents for shelter in the summer months when rainfall reaches its highest level.
This campaign desk brings the voyages of the 1800’s to life and would make the perfect antique gift for anybody who is interested in this time period. For the explorers of Burma and India, their daily essentials would need to be easily accessible and the storage units would need to provide an easy way of packing up and moving to their next destination along harsh terrain such as mountains and deserts. The design of this modern campaign desk aims to include both the history and usability of the trunks used by early explorers; providing a stylish storage unit that is also functional. For this reason, the campaign desk would also make for a perfect unique office gift as it would supply any office with a beautiful storage unit that would get people talking.
