Although medieval furniture was home equipment, we can also find furniture in knight camps, where they spoke of the status and wealth of the owner. In camps we can find such equipment as: buckets, baskets, pots, tables, stools, chairs, chests and even beds. The early gothic furniture was made from massive boards. Out of the survived originals the most common are chests, which particularly stand out because of the richness of the form (coat of arms and emblems of the owners often appeared on them).
