Aldwych 2 Drawer Chest, Snow

Change colour

A closer look at Aldwych

Aldwych is a contemporary chest of drawers with slim proportions and an angular shape. It’s a little smaller than some other storage pieces, making it suited to your bedside as much as to the corner of your living space or as a hallway console table.

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. 

Storage

There are actually just two drawers in this piece, although they look like three. The bottom one has been cleverly disguised to maintain the symmetry created by three, equally sized drawers, but is in fact doubly deep for storing larger objects. It makes Aldwych all the more useful. 

Design detail

The tray-like top doesn’t lift off, but is as practical for keeping things in place as it is decorative. Its slim legs balance the visual weight of the drawers, and underneath are discreet feet, which help to keep the paint finish from scuffing as much as they protect hard flooring.

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.

The hardware on Aldwych changes to suit the colour it’s painted in; either the chrome Limehouse ball handle (when in Snow or any of our other shades) or the Henley Black Bronze knob (to pair with Warm Black).

This piece is made from natural timber, which will expand (slightly) and shrink (just a little) as it responds to the humidity and temperature in your room. We’ve used joinery techniques that’ll help to counteract this, but small changes in your piece are completely natural and to be expected. Just know that, in the very unlikely event that there’s a significant change to the structure, we’ll be here to help.

Taking care

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

We take our delivery service seriously. Neptune transport, Neptune people, Neptune service.

Our white glove service means you’ll have a two-man delivery team. That means no heavy lifting on your part is needed. They’ll take it to your desired spot, assemble it for you and take away the packaging for recycling. The assembly service doesn't include fitted furniture.

For homes and customers outside of the UK and Ireland, our international team are here to help arrange shipping and delivery. Call us on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or e-mail  and together we’ll sort out the best method for you.

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with 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, free of charge.

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 to your address for collection.

If you’ve bought something from us outside the UK or Ireland, just get in touch with the store you bought it from – or with our international team if you bought it through them – and they’ll let you know how you can return or exchange it.

You can find the store’s details online here.
