Chichester Full Height Bookcase

Change colour

A closer look at Chichester

Chichester’s got all the charm of English country furniture, but in a simple shape that brings it up to date – you can order it in any of our paint colours so it matches the rest of your room. This full-height bookcase has adjustable open shelves that are deep enough to hold hardbacks, and a wide drawer beneath (disguised as two drawers so it looks balanced).

The materials

Chichester’s 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. 

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 drawers have soft-close runners hidden underneath, and 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.

Taking care of Chichester
