A closer look at Charlie

If you like a classic look, but lean towards more minimal design. If you’re looking for a bedroom focal point and want to create a feeling of cosiness. If you haven’t the space for bedside lights or want a more discreet alternative. Then Charlie, with its tall height, wingback and slots for our Rathbone reading lights, ticks all those boxes.

The frame

You won’t find anything underneath Charlie’s upholstery except proper timber, joints and screws, because they’re the way to promise lasting strength and stability. That way, years down the line when the fabric needs a pick-me-up, you can reupholster Charlie knowing that the frame’s just as solid as the day you bought it.

Pairing with a bed base

Whether you have a wooden bed base like Chichester, an upholstered one like Francis, or a divan with a valance, Charlie will fit onto it. It’s upholstered all the way to the floor, so the wings stretch down the sides of your bed too. That means its height isn’t adjustable, and it’ll look taller or smaller depending on the height of your bed base and mattress. That’s not something to worry about though, as it’s still tall for the highest of beds.

Attaching your headboard

You can use either Charlie’s French cleat to attach it to the wall, or the fixing at the bottom to fit it onto your bed base. Or both, if you want it to be well and truly secure. The French cleat, which is simply two pieces of timber (one for the wall and one on the headboard) that slot together, is also deep enough that you can hang Charlie over skirting and not need to cut out a space for it.

Fitting a light

If you can’t reach your lamp around the wings, or don’t have space for one and can’t install wall lights, Charlie has slots under its upholstery where you can fit two of our Rathbone lights instead. You’ll just need to ask an upholsterer to snip through the fabric and pop the lights in, chasing the cables out through the spaces in the back, before stitching the fabric back up. Your electrician can then wire them in.

The textiles in our fabric library range from pure linen to rich velvet and wool, and each one has its own character. Tone and texture can vary slightly from thread to thread, and expect to see the occasional slub in our linens and pile movement in our velvets. We’ve written an article about the personality behind each of our fabrics so that you can figure out which one best suits your home.

Sometimes colour between batches can vary ever-so-slightly. To be on the safe side, we’d advise buying pieces that are being used in the same room in one go.

Taking care of your furniture

We’ve put together a series of guides on how best to take care of our pieces, so you can keep them looking as good as the day you first brought them 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. So that’s no heavy lifting on your part. They’ll take it to your desired spot, put it together for you and take away the packaging for recycling.

They can also fit your headboard to your bed if you’d like, just not to your wall (that involves a few screws, and we wouldn’t want to accidentally damage your home).

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.
