Chichester 6ft Bookcase

A closer look at Chichester

Chichester’s got all the charm of English country furniture, but the mix of a painted finish with natural oak brings it up to date – you can order it in any of our paint colours so it matches the rest of your room. This bookcase comes in two widths (as well as a version without cupboards) and has adjustable shelves that are deep enough for hardbacks, as well as cupboard storage.

The materials

Chichester’s base is made of tulipwood, a hardwood with a fine, knot-free grain that makes a smooth surface for paint. We use a mixture of spray-painted and hand-painted techniques, so the finish is as perfect and robust as can be. The top’s oak, which we use for its beautiful grain, knots and variations in tone. It’s protected with our IsoGuard® treatment oil in Natural Oak, which guards against marks without masking its character.

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. 

Design details

Carved door mouldings and skirting give Chichester an elegant look. It comes with both oak and chrome Chichester knobs, so you can choose whichever suits your room best. The cupboard doors shut on chrome roller catches, and inside, the shelves are supported on load-bearing zigzag supports, so you don’t have to worry about them coming loose.

Where we see it

Chichester gives a lovely library-style feeling to a living room or study. It’s also great in place of built-in shelving in a niche (such as either side of a chimney breast).

Just so you know

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.

Chichester’s made from natural timber, which will expand and shrink slightly as it responds to the humidity and temperature in your room. We’ve used joinery techniques that’ll help to counteract this, but small changes are completely natural. In the unlikely event that there’s a significant change to the structure, we’ll be here to help.
