    English Classics Furniture Pair Of Nightstands In Mahogany
    Hailing from England, this hand crafted pair of nightstands are a beautiful example of English furniture. While excellent for use next to a bed, they would also function perfectly as matching end tables by a sofa or chairs. These brand new bedside chests are of the utmost quality. The third generation furniture maker in England that built them uses time honored techniques to create heirloom quality pieces of furniture. The attention to detail in this pair of nightstands is amazing. The selection of fine mahogany wood is set off with antiqued brass ring pulls and satinwood bell-flower inlays. The bell-flower inlays are also known as 'swag” inlays or garland inlays. Each of the tops is inlaid with a satinwood fan inlay, black line decal, and lighter mahogany band around the outside. The hand crafting process includes a seven stage hand rubbed finish, just like antique furniture that was built several hundred years ago. All of these details combine to make this pair of nightstands a stunning set. You will notice that all of the drawers are joined with dovetailed (another term for mortise and tenon) joints. These joints make the drawers as strong as possible. It is important that drawers be dovetailed since they will receive the most use and abuse on a functional piece of furniture. This type of construction will help the piece to last for lifetimes! The feet used are a sturdy bracket foot which not provide superior stability to the nightstands, but also fit in with the Georgian style look of the chests. Included in the pictures is a close up of one of the tops that has a slight mark in it. This mark is almost impossible to see unless the light is just right, but we wanted to show it anyways. The picture makes it look much more prevalent than it is.

    English Classics Furniture Georgian Style Mahogany Pair of Bedside Chests
    Made at the perfect height, this pair of bedside chests was recently crafted in England of the finest cathedral mahogany. This pair is not only beautiful, but very functional as well. The furniture maker who made these chests in England has decades of furniture making experience which shows in the quality and artistry of his work. He has used age old techniques to craft this beautiful pair of bedside chests. Each nightstand has three drawers. Each of the three drawers is constructed with dovetailed joints for superior strength and durability when compared to other joining techniques. Beyond that, he has fitted each drawer with a pair of solid brass swan neck drop pulls. These antiqued brass pulls contrast the cathedral mahogany of the pair of bedside chests. Also offsetting the mahogany grain are the satinwood string inlays on each drawer front and each chest top. These are real inlays, expertly hammered into the mahogany. In contrast to the better known flame mahogany which has a flaring grain, cathedral mahogany has a straighter, more uniform grain. This gives the wood a 'neater” look and allows the inlays used with it to really pop out visually. This pair of bedside chests benefits from both the cathedral mahogany and the subtle use of satinwood inlays to give the pair a clean, crisp look. This pair of bedside chests has many characteristics of the Georgian style furniture period. The slightly canted corners, pulls, and bracket feet are the most noteworthy. Because these nightstands are brand new, they function perfectly. The drawers slide in and out very easily and the chests do not have the odor that can accompany older chests. The maker also took the time to cant the front corners of the tops, which minimizes the sharp edges that you can potentially bump into. Overall this pair of bedside chests is a stunning find that could function very well as nightstands or complimenting side tables.
