This beautiful blanket chest is made from hundreds of strips of brown oak that have been joined together to make our own in-house veneer. The interior has a discreet cedar lining to deter moths and has bespoke brass fixings with an engineered wooden catch for easy opening.
The chest has been specifically designed to stand at the foot of a double bed. The piece is a part of a larger bespoke fitted bedroom suite that has been designed for our client using our Murano veneers, which we feel complements this piece perfectly. The back and underside of the chest has been designed with a gentle curve, that stands on a scorched oak plinth.

We spotted Edward’s wonderful work at an annual exhibition of Sussex Craftsmen. We couldn’t wait to commission him to make our unusual bedroom concept furniture. Ed has been a delight to work with, he and his team are our greatest find, the workshop is a gem, producing the most wonderful works of art in furniture form. Edward’s eye for detail and extensive knowledge, skill and design flair has given us exactly what we dreamed of. Edward has shown great patience, he has led us through the design and build process and has carefully envisaged all practical needs for our furniture. The workmanship and skill of the pieces has made them the finest of any cabinet makers, old and new. Edwards work is the ‘Hygge’ of English furniture. Timeless yet modern with an unsurpassed quality.
