A closer look at Carter

These shelves were designed with kitchens in mind, but they can easily translate across the home as an understated way to display a collection – be it of tabletop pieces or books. They can be wall-mounted as open shelving or freestanding as a short bookcase. Part of our Carter collection, they combine oak and steel in a way that feels industrial but still refined and timeless.

Materials

We use oak because of its beautiful grain, its durability and its sense of heritage (we’ve written more on oak’s qualities here). Part of its character are its knots and variations in tone, so each piece will have its own hand-writing. Here, it’s combined with steel, a metal known for its load-bearing strength.

The finish: oak

The oak goes through a seven-step process of brushing, staining and buffing to highlight the natural character in its grain. It’s then protected with IsoGuard®, our treatment oil that makes it easier to live with but that doesn’t mask its texture. We’ve aptly called the resulting appearance Dark Vintage Oak.

The finish: steel

Traditionally, steel is given a durable, blackened finish through quenching. But it’s an industrial process that’s just not practical for us, so we powder-coat Carter’s frame instead. Almost black in colour, but with a hint of bronze, it’s a finish that, although it may still show the occasional scratch, will age gracefully.

Design detail

One of the loveliest things about Carter is how clean-cut its edges are: they give it a sense neatness. It also looks lightweight and unobtrusive, despite its size and the strength in its materials. It comes with three shelves: two are fixed, but the top can be removed for an open look when hanging up high.

Suggested combinations

You can use these shelves on their own, or you can combine multiples together to create a larger piece that suits your available space. When doing this, we tend to use the different sizes together (such as two slim and one wide, or vice versa) to vary the pace.

Just So you know

We include the brackets you’ll need to mount Carter on the wall, we just ask that you select the screws and fixings that are most suitable for your type of wall.

This piece is made from natural timber, which will expand (slightly) and shrink (just a little) 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 in your piece are completely natural and to be expected. Just know that, in the very unlikely event that there’s a significant change to the structure, we’ll be here to help.

Taking care of Carter

We’ve put together this guide on taking care of your storage, 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 does exclude fitted furniture.

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.
