Chichester Open Bedside Cabinet

Change colour

A closer look at Chichester

Our Chichester bedside cabinets, like the rest of the collection, are pared-back in their design because we want them to be as timeless as possible. They simply combine painted timber with oak tops, unfussy details and practical storage. This one has an open shelf at its base, for an airier look than a solid piece, or for creating a decorative display of books and objects.

Materials

Where the timber is painted, we’ve used tulipwood – a hardwood that has a fine grain, so it creates a smooth finish. The exposed timber top though, is oak, with all of the knots and colour variations that are part of its charm (we’ve written more about oak’s qualities here).

The finish: paint

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 finish: IsoGuard®

Chichester’s top is protected with IsoGuard®, our timber treatment oil that makes the oak easier to live with yet doesn’t mask its natural texture. It does initially darken its appearance, but our Natural finish replenishes the original honey-toned colour.

Storage

In this version of the Chichester beside cabinet (it’s also available with a cupboard), there’s a drawer and an open shelf. The drawer closes softly and quietly, and is deep enough for hiding bedside essentials. The shelf can be left bare, stacked with books, or occupied by a basket.

Size

When it comes to size, this is a typical bedside table: petite, so it won’t encourage clutter, but with enough space on top to perch all the essentials: a lamp, paperback and glass of water.

Design detail

The detailing on the drawer front and around each of the gently-tapered legs adds just a hint of traditional style. We’ve also added a tongue and groove-like detail to the shelf, so it’s attractive when it’s empty too.

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.

This piece comes with both oak and chrome Chichester knobs, so you can choose whichever suits your room best.

Taking care

We’ve put together this guide on taking care of your bedside 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.

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.
