Chichester Single Bed, Wooden Headboard

A closer look at Chichester

Chichester’s a collection for people who like traditional and classic English design. It’s a bed that’s timeless, from its style to its solid timber and proper joinery. The colour of its painted finish is simple to change later down the line too, as is its upholstered headboard, so it can live on and on. And its subtle details are as longlasting now as when we first designed them over a decade ago.

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.

The perfect pairing

If you like, you can fit a valance over the base of this bed (another opportunity to introduce the texture and colour of fabric to your bedroom). Our Alice valance – which has neat box-pleat edges and is available in a variety of textiles – will fit perfectly.

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

We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset.  And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over. 

When it comes to designs upholstered in a made-to-order fabric or painted in a bespoke colour, there’s also a 20% 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.

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.

And talk to our international team on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or at
