Does this dresser strike you as familiar in any way. Why yes, you say...it's a Campaign dresser. It even has brass pulls, so it must be vintage. Right? WRONG. Apparently someone at CB2 has been watching the trends and putting their findings to good use. Meet the Archive dresser from CB2. An updated version of the classic Campaign style.
I literally did a double take when I was flipping through and saw this looking back at me. So for those of you want a classic, without having to deal with the vintage part of the equation...here you go. But, let's talk about what it means for the Campaign style itself. Since CB2 has officially caught on, and put this classic look into production, will it fall out of favor now that is is being mass-produced? Or is this a good thing, making good design more accessible?
I struggle with this, as, I am a person whose likes things to be personal and unique for my spaces. If everyone else has it, most likely, I don't want it. I'm not sure how I feel about it. It is a smart looking piece of furniture, to be sure. But, will it cheapen it? Hmmmm. Thoughts?
Speaking of classic knock-offs...look what Ashley from Meet Me in Philadelphia found...
Yep, a repro of the classic Re-Trouve chair (shown below) from none other than PB Teen (above.)
Again, I ask. Good? Bad? Whatever?
