Chichester Housekeeper's Cupboard Base

Change colour

A closer look at Chichester

This piece actually forms the base of the Chichester housekeeper’s cupboard , but it’s just as useful on its own if you want something on the smaller side. Use it as a generous side table between a pair of twin beds or beneath a window in a living room – we like to put cushions on top and use it as a window seat. It’s part of our Chichester collection: a style that’s pared-back and timeless.

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

The housekeeper’s base offers a great deal of storage, with three generously sized drawers. The largest could be used to keep blankets close to hand, while the top two can be combined with our smaller Ashcroft baskets (two of the small box trays fit well) to organise bits and bobs.

Design detail

Considered details (like the carved grooves that frame the drawers and the cut-out shape to the skirting) subtly elevate this piece: it’s simple, but not plain. There’s also a satisfying weight behind the drawers, which pull out fully so you can get right to the back, and then close again softly.

Taking care

We’ve put together this guide on taking care of your 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. The assembly service doesn't include fitted furniture.

For homes and customers outside of the UK and Ireland, our international team are here to help arrange shipping and delivery. Call us on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or e-mail  and together we’ll sort out the best method for you.

No-quibble returns

Returns should be easy, that’s why we have 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. 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.

And 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
