Why this dresser?
There are lots of ways you can arrange Chawton but, if you have low ceilings, this setup was made with you in mind – it’s around 20cm shorter than our other dressers. It also comes in single and triple-width sizes so you can choose what’s best depending on how much floor space you have (and storage space you need).
Choose to span wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling, opt for glazed shelving or open and drawers or doors, create a dresser for a low-beamed cottage or a bookcase for a sloping-ceilinged barn – with Chawton, the choice is entirely yours. Just pop into one of our stores to get started.
Chawton’s made from tulipwood and oak: two timbers you can depend upon for years to come. They’re both strong, they’re both natural, and they’re both excellent at what they do – tulipwood with its fine, even grain for painting, and oak with its characterful (but not too knotty) grain for leaving on show.
The finish: tulipwood
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 needs.
The finish: oak
However you choose to finish the exterior, inside will always be unpainted oak. We’ve brushed, buffed and stained it to give it a slightly darkened and textured finish. And we’ve protected it with our IsoGuard® oil to help it stand up to scuffs and stains – without changing the natural feel of the timber.
In detail: handles & hardware
All Chawton’s hardware – from the porthole-like handles to the sliding door rails – is finished in deep, dark Bronze. Just the thing to go with the contemporary cabinet style (but not too modern for a traditional home), it’ll create a strong contrast against Snow and a tone-on-tone look with Ink.
In detail: the shelves
The oak shelves rest on pins that let you adjust their position up and down. No ordinary pins though, they’re incredibly strong metal ones, which screw into the sides properly and are finished in bronze just the same as the rest of the hardware.
In detail: the drawers
Just like our kitchen cabinetry, Chawton’s drawers rest on soft-close runners. And, as with the shelves, we’ve considered every detail, like the fact that the runners sit underneath the drawer so, when you pull it out, you won’t be able to see them.
Chawton’s designed so that you can easily put it together yourself – because it’s freestanding, you don’t need a professional to install it. It means that, if you want to move it, add sections or take pieces away in the future, you absolutely can.
So you can create your own wine cellar-style storage, this Chawton set comes with six of the cross-shaped wine bottle shelves. You can fit up to 12 in its top cabinets though, in case you want to add more as your collection expands. And, if you’d prefer, there’s also a version without.
