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 – not so far that they become Shaker in style, but more classic English. This design 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 that you want to keep next to your bed.

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. The exposed timber top though is solid oak, with all of the natural knots and colour variations that are part of its charm (we’ve written more about oak’s qualities here).

The finish: paint

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. 

The finish: IsoGuard®

Chichester’s oak top is protected with IsoGuard®, our timber treatment oil that helps to prevent stains and spills from setting in, like water rings from cups without coasters. And it does all of this without masking the natural look and feel of oak like most lacquers and sealers do.

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 or make the room feel crowded, 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.

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
