A closer look at Chichester

The Chichester dining table, like the rest of this collection, embodies what classic English design means to us. Its details – such as the grooves at the bottom of each leg – are traditional but simple enough to be timeless. So is the way it combines a painted finish with an oak tabletop.


Where the timber is painted, we’ve used tulipwood – a high-quality hardwood that has very few knots in its grain, lending it to a high-quality finish. The exposed timber tabletop though, is natural 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 tabletop 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 colour.

In the making

In all our tables, we use joinery techniques that help to counteract timber’s natural tendency to expand (slightly) and shrink (just a little) as it adjusts to the temperature and humidity of your home.


The straight lines of a rectangular table can’t help but feel more formal than those of round tables, and will bring order to the room. But the setting can be relaxed with a mix of chair styles.

Design detail

A beam of timber (known as a stretcher), sits near the floor. Taken from traditional refectory table styles, it provides additional strength. The braces that join it to each leg are curved so a chair can fit in at the head of the table, as is the skirt underneath at each end so legs have extra room.

Taking care of Chichester

We’ve put together this guide on taking care of your dining table, 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.
