A closer look at Chichester

This bed was created with longevity in mind, both in terms of style and substance. The subtle details in its timber frame and headboard are timeless (so much so they’ve remained largely unchanged since our first Chichester bed over a decade ago), and it’s made using tried-and-tested joinery techniques so it’s as strong as can be.

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 over our painted finishes and give every design exactly what it needs to make it robust. The number of base and top coats will vary according to how many that 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 and end sit snugly underneath the mattress so you won’t be able to see the slats beneath, so it asks for a little less room, and so you’re not as likely to bump your shins when walking around it in the dark.

Underneath the mattress

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

Design detail

Considered details in Chichester’s design (like scalloped corners on the base, grooves on each gently-tapered leg and ball finials on the bedposts) subtly elevate it: it’s simple, but not plain. We’ve also included plain caps for the bedposts, so you can remove the ball finials if you prefer.

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.
