Flexible furniture: our versatile designs
We design our furniture to last for one hundred years, using the finest quality materials and traditional, fail-safe joinery. We also design our furniture with flexibility in mind, knowing that your home may well need to bend and stretch to accommodate life’s twists and turns. That being so, we’ve gathered the pieces in our collection that keenly carry the mantle of flexibility, to help you understand how and where you might use them around your home.
Coniston Our latest four-poster bed has the same elegant finial details and Black-Bronze finish characteristic of the rest of the Coniston collection. Yet its sleek framework has even more to offer. You wouldn’t know just by looking at it, but this poised four-poster transforms into a standard bed in just a few simple steps. The upper framework and posts are removeable, and you can reattach the finials to the lower frame to restore its silhouette. This way, if the bed moves to a room with lower ceilings, or if you feel like a simpler look later down the line, it remains just as functional and beautiful. The upholstered headboard is removeable too, so you can update it with a new fabric in years to come.
Chawton You’ll find versatility throughout our collection, but nowhere more so than in our modular furniture designs. Chawton’s our make-it-your-own cabinetry collection inspired by grand library bookcases but brought up to date with clever configurations and plenty of customisable scope. The campaign drawer –named after the furniture carried by travelling armies between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries – is our newest component. Designed to be paired with cabinetry in the collection, it has a pull-out surface for anything from penning a card to preparing a drink; it’s a multi-functional design that serves a purpose in any number of rooms. Use it with the Chawton base cabinets and sideboard drawer, for example, to create a desk or dressing table that stows away when needed.
Pembroke The second of our modular systems is Pembroke: our buildable shelving to fit any space. With cornicing, skirting and mouldings that reflect our Suffolk and Chichester collections, Pembroke has a classic feel and a configurable nature to boot. Whichever set up of shelves and drawers you choose for your space (our in-store teams can help you with this), Pembroke’s function can be adapted as your needs naturally shift. Use anywhere from the boot room for storing wellies and outdoor wear, to your home office for stacking books and displaying keepsakes.
