Canal Dover Furniture Company’s range of bedroom furniture is made from American solid wood and crafted by experienced woodworking specialists. The 28 collections – yes, 28 collections – give you a fabulous choice of furniture regardless of your bedroom’s decorative sty.
We’re looking at two of these here, from opposite ends of the spectrum. -First is the Jamestown collection which reflects the old colonial days when our ancestors came together to push the British out and claim this great nation as theirs – ours now, thanks to them.
The second is the Pacific collection, a collection of modern looking black and white bedroom furniture that displays very clean lines and contrasts and may even attract the envious glances of your teenagers – who knows what they’re thinking! However, it is an option that you can offer them, although it is high quality furniture, handmade according to strict standards of craftsmanship.
The Jamestown bedroom furniture collection
The Jamestown bedroom furniture collection is a colonial style of furniture, available in maple, oak and cherry with an array of wood finishes. The wood stains used enhance the grain and beautiful patterns of the natural wood. The range consists of eight pieces, of which two are the panel bed and the wrought iron bed, with the difference in the headboards.
The 60-inch high panel bed headboard consists of an upper rail on three small panels, with two large panels beneath them. The alternative has a length of beautiful wrought iron scrolls instead of the top panels. You really have to see it to appreciate it. Each bed is available in Queen, King and California King sizes. The footpegs are 24 inches tall.
Also included are a dresser with a 42-inch square mirror and a dresser with a 59-inch long x 25-inch high mirror. The dresser consists of six half-width drawers, while the chest of drawers also has 6 drawers plus three narrower drawers above them.
There are also two 56-inch-high chests: a 26-inch-wide laundry chest and a 38-inch-wide regular chest. Add a nightstand and nightstand and you have the complete set. The design is traditional colonial style and this set would look great in any bedroom style.
The Pacific collection
For this review we looked at the Canal Dover Pacific collection in maple with weathered white soapstone finish and oak with satin black paint. It was the striking black and white contrast that caught our eye. Your children will definitely prefer it to the Colonial collection. Generally the drawers are white and the picture black.
The bed is a loft bed, always in Queen, King and California King sizes. The platform is 10 inches tall, and the four optional rectangular flat headboards are between 46 and 52 inches high, starting at ground level.
The 7-drawer lingerie chest is 54 inches tall and a regular 48-inch 6-drawer chest is also an option. Add to that a black and white 6-drawer dresser and a uniquely styled nightstand, and you have a nice set of bedroom furniture here that suits mostly younger elements and those who prefer to move away from traditional wood finishes. .
Other collections for the bedroom
Once you see these two collections of bedroom furniture from Canal Dover, you can imagine the other collections that lie between them, such as the wonderful Shaker and the beautiful Brooklyn collections. In case you can’t see something online or in the showroom that catches your eye, you can choose from a number of wood finishes. Often, the only difference between old-fashioned and modern bedroom furniture is the difference in wood finish and paint color!
Canal Dover furniture construction
Like most handmade furniture, Canal Dover furniture is made using high quality sustainable wood and traditional joinery techniques. Most rail joints are made using mortise and tenon joints, while the front, back and sides of the cabinet and drawer are joined by sturdy dovetails. The catalytic paints used provide a very tough surface that resists shocks and heat more than normal paints. Seven-step catalyzed paints are the most durable used in industry.
Canal Dover’s bedroom furniture is as good as it gets, each piece is handmade by artisans and women using the best woodworking techniques available today. The choice is huge and the quality is fantastic – you can see it just by looking at it and touching it. Those in the know can tell the quality from its feel – all Canal Dover furniture has that feel and is 100% made in America!
