A campaign or colonial furniture is a piece of furniture intended to be embarked on ships or ashore in shipping companies. Furniture is more often intended to remain ashore and those on board have a system of attachment to the ground or the bulkheads of ships.

The campaign furniture is of a great aesthetic because of its simple forms the color of its wood with its corners and brass locks.
(Mahogany, teak, rosewood, camphor are the most used wood species).

The deconstructed boats no longer have any antique furniture, the research is done on sites of demolition of ships, on the markets, in antiquarians or private individuals.

Our supply is difficult but regular, the restoration is often ensured by our cabinetmaker, mainly for large furniture.
