A closer look at Chichester

The Chichester collection is pared back – to be completely timeless – and this is especially true in the bed base design. Its looks may be simple, but we think its details and quality (it’s made using timber and proper joinery) make it an excellent alternative to a divan (it can be paired with any of our headboards or valances).

Materials

When it comes to painted timber, we use tulipwood – a strong and resilient hardwood. Its fine, almost knot-free grain makes it perfectly suited to a painted finish, so you get the best of both worlds – strength and smoothness.

Finish

Not every piece of furniture and every colour of paint needs the same process – a ‘one finish suits all’ approach won’t ever give you the best result possible. That’s why we vary the number of coats and use both hand-painted and spray-painted techniques depending on what that shade requires.

The bed base

Chichester’s sides sit snugly underneath the mattress to conceal the timber slats beneath and so it asks for a little less room. It also means you’re not as likely to bump your shins when walking around it in the dark.

The slats

Beech is used to make the slats on each of our beds because it’s flexible and reliable. They’re sprung, which means they curve upwards to give a little extra bounce underneath the mattress. They’re held in place with discreet, cream-coloured clips. Beds larger than a single have an extra support in the centre too.  

Design detail

Considered details in Chichester’s design, like scalloped corners on the base, and grooves on each gently-tapered leg, are those touches that make it simple and classic rather than plain. Hidden at its back are subtle bolts that hold your chosen headboard in place.

Just so you know

The colours in our paint palette shown here are a close representation of their true shades, but to see the real thing, we suggest trying our sample paint pots.

Our beds are designed to suit metric-sized mattresses (UK single, double, king and super-king sizes), like our own Barrington. They don’t come with the mattress or any bedding, so you can choose what suits you best, whether that’s a firm or medium mattress, cotton or linen sheets.

Taking care

We’ve put together this guide on taking care of your bed so that it stays looking as beautiful as the day you first brought it home.

No-quibble returns

Returns should be easy, that’s why we have a ‘no quibble’ mindset.

If you decide on the day that it’s not for you then our delivery team can take it away for you there and then. But if you’d rather mull things over, you have 28 days to make up your mind. We do charge a pick-up fee of £29.95 here though, because we’ll need to send our delivery team back out.

And when it comes to designs upholstered in a made-to-order fabric or painted in a bespoke colour, there’s also a 30% returns/cancellation fee. We’d love to not have to charge a penny for this, but as they’re made just for you, we can’t always guarantee that we’ll be able to sell them again.
