This stunning mid-century five-drawer chest of drawers, crafted from teak and designed by Meredew in the 1960's, is a beautiful example of mid-century British craftsmanship.

Painted in a deep grey, almost black mineral paint and varnished for durability.

The front of the drawers have been lined with Graham & Brown Quarters Sepia paper, a neutral and grounded colour palette, that complements the surrounding black paint.

The legs have been painted in a deep gray, almost black mineral paint and varnished for durability.

The chest of drawers boasts two good-sized drawers and three smaller drawers above, providing plenty of storage.

DIMENSIONS:

Width: 107cm
Height: 68cm
Depth: 46cm

Measurements are rounded up to the nearest centimeter so you can be confident that they will fit into your intended space. If you require additional measurements, please ask and I will be happy to provide these for you.

PRE-LOVED FURNITURE

This is a vintage piece of furniture has been restored skilfully, with high attention to detail, however, it may show signs of a previous life in the form of background repairs, or may have a dink here and there. This in no way hinders the functionality of the piece and only adds to its character.

Freshly painted furniture can take up to 28 days to harden. We advise you during this period to take extra care. The paint used on this piece is waterproof, however, it is still recommended to use coasters and dusting should only be done with a slightly damp lint-free cloth. Any chemicals should be avoided.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

Bought Vintage Bench

What a discovery I made the day I found the Upcite site. A myriad of different styles and designs on recycled furniture gives endless and unique choices. I went for a simple but beautifully restored little pew, with which I’m delighted. Thank you Upcite and may you go from strength to strength

Drinks Cabinet

This is the first time I have purchased from Upcite. I bought a gorgeous little cabinet to go in an alcove in my lounge. The cabinet has been upcycled really well but still retains its original character. It will bring a touch of mid century glamour to my lounge
The service was very good and communication throughout the process was excellent. I will certainly check Upcite in the future when looking for furniture.

I have just unpacked the drinks cabinet now (I was out yesterday) Please thank the delivery driver, who arrived before the designated time! (When does that ever happen!) The photos are to show that it is safe. The packaging was on point. I will send pics when the cabinet is in its new home (extension- kitchen/living room). I absolutely love it. Please let Fi know. Thank you so much for the special service that you have provided.
