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

Because it’s painted, we use tulipwood to make this bed. It’s a hardwood that’s especially good for this kind of finish because it has a very fine, almost knot-free grain, so the surface will be smooth. You’ll feel the quality of the timber, but not see its texture.

Finish

We take great care in achieving our painted finish and treat every design differently, giving it exactly what it needs to make it robust. We vary the number of base and top coats according to how many that particular shade requires. And we use a mixture of spray-painted and hand-painted techniques so the finish is as perfect as can be.

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 provide 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) subtly elevate it: it’s simple, but not plain. Hidden at its back are discreet 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.

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.

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.
