“ To me , Chester is a classic design that fits unquestionably into any home ”

Jenet Jackson , Stow Store Manager
When it comes to design , we are constantly looking at ways to improve . Even those ranges which are known and loved , like Chester , we ’ re passionate about progress , especially when it comes to the smallest of details .

“ Chester ’ s original shape was based on Oakland but as we ’ ve developed more collections , we ’ ve changed some of the proportions . By reducing the frame size this allowed us to increase the drawer sizes – giving you more storage – and the doors to improve functionality . It also helps to balance the overall look of every piece for a more timeless yet contemporary feel .”
From a soft Dove Grey to Pure White , Midnight Blue is the latest finish to join our Chester collection . A wonderfully rich and regal colourway , it joins the equally striking Chester Charcoal in our dark painted offerings for this range . Once considered a trend colour , its popularity continued to rise and it wasn ’ t long before blue became an important interior staple . “ We wanted to add this shade into our bestselling range , Chester ,” says Victoria . “ Since the blue trend emerged , paint and interior colours have also become deeper and darker in tone so we reflected this in Midnight Blue - a darker shade of blue with black undertones .”
Chester is available across almost every room . This allows you to create a purposeful sense of continuity within your home , whilst giving a built-in cabinetry feel , that can still be moved around and taken with you if you move . Impossibly versatile – with function and beauty at the forefront – it ’ s designed with family homes in mind . Extendable dining tables that can easily seat the whole family , freestanding larders for effortless organisation , a range of chests to provide storage for master bedrooms or guest rooms . Adopting the same design details across every range in the collection , it ’ s simple to mix and match the finishes - and quick to personalise with its choice of handles .
It ’ s little wonder then , given these reasons and many more , why Chester is so universally loved .
