From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
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 email@example.com.

A closer look at Chawton
Chawton’s designed so that you can easily put it together yourself – because it’s freestanding, you don’t need a professional to install it. It means that, even though our delivery team will assemble it for you when it arrives, if you want to move it, add sections or take pieces away in the future, you absolutely can.
Whether you want to turn a few of your dresser’s shelves into your very-own wine cellar-style storage, or you’ve always dreamed of a library ladder to reach the uppermost shelves, we’ve created accessories to help you do just that. You’ll find them here. This size dresser also comes as a ready-made set with ladder in tow.
As something more
Choose to span wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling, create kitchen shelving for a low-beamed cottage or a bookcase for a sloping-ceilinged barn – with Chawton, the choice is entirely yours. Just pop into one of our stores to get started, or browse the whole collection online here.
Why this dresser?
There are lots of ways you can arrange Chawton, but this setup’s designed with smaller rooms and a more traditional look in mind. The name, ‘classic’, comes from the combination of a triple-height top cabinet with a single-height one above – a look that uses classical architectural proportions and feels completely at home in a period property.
Choose to span wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling, opt for glazed shelving over open and drawers over doors, create a dresser for a low-beamed cottage or a bookcase for a sloping-ceilinged barn – with Chawton, the choice is entirely yours.
Chawton’s made from tulipwood and oak: two timbers you can depend upon for years to come. They’re both strong, they’re both natural, and they’re both excellent at what they do – tulipwood with its fine, even grain for painting, and oak with its characterful (but not too knotty) grain for leaving on show.
The finish: tulipwood
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 needs.
The finish: oak
Whichever colour you choose for the exterior, inside will always be unpainted oak. We’ve brushed, buffed and stained it to give it a slightly darkened and textured finish. And we’ve protected it with our IsoGuard® oil to help it stand up to scuffs and stains – without changing the natural feel of the timber.
In detail: handles & hardware
All Chawton’s hardware – from the porthole-like handles on the doors to the cup-shaped ones for the drawers – is finished in deep, dark Bronze. Just the thing to go with the contemporary cabinet style (but not too modern for a traditional home), it’ll create a strong contrast against Snow and a tone-on-tone look with Ink.
In detail: the shelves
The oak shelves rest on pins that let you adjust their position up and down. No ordinary pins though, they’re incredibly strong metal ones, which screw into the sides properly and are finished in bronze just the same as the rest of the hardware.
