This stunning table works as a dressing table, desk or console table. It is handmade here in the UK using traditional methods and is part of the new Colmworth modular range which can be fitted besides a run of wardrobes, chest of drawers or bedside cabinets. As part of the office range it works as a desk on a run of units with drawers and cupboards for a gorgeous fitted home office. But this table can also be used as a standalone piece. Built using solid pine throughout, handmade using traditional techniques and built to last a lifetime. This dressing table would be painted in any colour from the Farrow and Ball range.
All of these units can be made to any size, please see www.nestatnumber20.com All units are painted in any colour from the Farrow and Ball range. If this configuration of units doesn’t suit your requirements then the beauty of the modular design becomes evident, you can choose any of these units to make one run as they all screw together and can create a gorgeous fitted look. Our modular range follows the same new beautiful stepped design of cornice and plinth, the benefit of this is that the units can be stacked on top of each other as well as side to side and the design will work seamlessly.
Please note, the modular units need to sit on a flat level floor. We don’t offer a fitting service.

You can have any of our painted furniture collections with a contrasting solid Oak top, waxed pine worktop or you can have it painted all over. They all look fantastic but it is personal choice and will just depend on what will work best with your interiors, the other furniture in your space and the style your going for.
The paint used at our workshop for the painted furniture is a Catalysed Paint which is specially produced for furniture. It is very tough, hardwearing and also gives a beautifully smooth, wipeable finish. Not all manufacturers will use a catalysed paint because it is more expensive, but we believe it’s the best option for all painted furniture.
Catalysed paint, unlike shop bought ‘regular’ paint, it contains a special hardening agent that means it drys and hardens very quickly. The Catalysed paint we use is very similar to the paint used in the Car industry, except the finish is a low sheen not high gloss. When hardened, a coat of catalysed paint adopts almost the hardness of a plastic coating. Obviously its not unbreakable but it is pretty resistant to thrown bunches of keys, dropped coins and the occasional bash with a hoover!
The biggest advantage of catalysed paint over standard types of paint is that it does not allow solvents through the surface. Most paints, over time, allow microscopic holes to form after they’ve dried, which enables liquids, air and other elements in the environment to deteriorate the paint. Because catalysed paint dries more quickly, holes take much longer to form, and the coat, therefore, lasts much longer than conventional paints. Catalysed paints, when applied, are hard and will also resist other materials permanently marking them, making them effective at repelling spilt Tea, crayons and make up! Basically, as in everything else, we try and use the best paints possible to ensure that your furniture is better finished and more hardwearing than the norm.
Choosing colours is fun not an exact science. You can choose any colour from the Farrow and Ball range, this option is included in the price you see. You can pick up a chart from DIY shops and decorators centre, it’s always best to look at the physical chart not the online one, this is what we recommend. Choosing furniture which complements the colour scheme in your home is a great way of really pushing the interior design. If you want any help with choosing a colour then do contact us and we will do our best to help.
Because our Furniture is customised to your order we are not able to accept returns if you do not like the colour, however we will always assist where possible. We advise you take your time to choose the colour and use a physical colour chart to help with this. We don’t need your colour choice straight away when you make an order, up to around three weeks after you’ve placed your order is when we will need to order you choice of paint colour, so take your time!
All of our furniture is made using traditional cabinet making techniques, these include dovetail joints on all drawers and Mortise and Tenon joins throughout the cabinets themselves. All of our furniture is made of solid pine throughout and will have expansion grooves where appropriate to minimise movement within the pine. Please contact us before ordering if you would like your furniture made without them. Our skilled cabinet makers have decades of experience in the furniture manufacturing industry and they are passionate about it too. They use a mixture of traditional techniques and modern methods to create furniture that is built to last a life time.
All the furniture you see on our site is made of FSC sustainably sourced solid pine. The materials are hand picked by our carpenters to pick up the best quality boards with the least amount of knots. We use American oak as a worktop option, a hardwood which is strong and heavy. It has a beautiful grain and is light in colour. We use oil to finish our oak worktops because of its superior quality. We can build any of our furniture designs or any bespoke designs using other timbers instead of pine, tulip is a popular option. Please contact us for a quote to manufacture in other timbers. We are proud to hand make our furniture here in the UK. Wood responds to changes in humidity, it absorbs moisture in the air in high humidity and looses moisture in low humidity. Controlling humidity in situ is important for wood furniture so that it doesn’t expand or contract. Pine is a natural product with a straight grain, fine texture and knots, once primed and painted these are low visibility.
The standard handles we use on all our furniture is a beautiful understated round cabinet handle and a traditional cup handle both in a satin nickel finish. Both heavy and great quality. We can supply them both in other finishes. Apart from the standard satin nickel, the round handles can be ordered in chrome, satin chrome, polished nickel, satin brass, polished brass, antique brass, matt bronze and matt black. Apart from the standard satin nickel, the cup handles can be ordered in the satin brass, antique brass, pewter and antique burnished brass. We can also fit hinges to match most of these finishes. If you’d prefer a more traditional farmhouse look then we can also supply oak, beech and pine mushroom handles finished or painted. Alternatively if you have your own handles that you’d like to match to existing furniture or your kitchen then you can send them over to us and we will be happy to fit these for you.
All of our shelves are adjustable using shelf pins. All the cupboards have a shelf inside each. Our drawers are traditionally made, they run in and out through the frame and carcass but if you’d prefer soft closing drawers with the drawers running on Blum fixings then that’s no problem, the cost of this specification is £50 per drawer. The insides of the base units, cupboards and drawers, come unfinished as standard. If you would like the insides of the cupboards, insides of the doors and entire drawer box painted then that’s no problem, the cost for this specification is £70 for larger units (six and seven ft) £65 for medium sized units (four and five ft) and £60 for smaller units. The insides of cupboards with glass doors and TV dressers with bifold doors are always painted.
If you are ordering a TV Dresser with or without bifolding doors then we can alter the width of the TV section to ensure your TV fits and because TV sizes vary so much, we make this alteration on nearly all orders for these units. So when ordering just let us know in cms how wide you’d like this space to be and we’ll make it to that size. We don’t charge anything for this alteration.
At Nest at Number 20 we have made everything from fitted kitchens to wardrobes, fitted home offices to bathroom vanity units as well as every type of freestanding furniture.
