Walnut Bedroom Furniture

24 August 2017

Walnut Bedroom Furniture is a wonderful choice for a warm and welcoming bedroom.

Our Walnut Bedroom Furniture Ranges

We have two walnut bedroom furniture ranges; the Hampton Range and the Spire Range by Frank Hudson. Both ranges feature stunning beds with matching bedsides, chests of drawers, dressing tables and wardrobes. The main difference between the two ranges are the veneers that are used.

Both ranges are constructed from solid mindi wood which is another name for white cedar wood. The Hampton Range is then finished with golden brown walnut veneers. The Spire Range on the other hand is finished with inlays of blonde European walnut. Both of these ranges have fantastic statement beds.

Hampton Range Beds

The Hampton Range features classic sleigh beds with a choice of low or regular footboard and a stunning Half Tester Bed which features an opulent upholstered canopy.

Frank Hudson Spire Range Beds

The Spire Sleigh bed has double panelled head and footboard and features the trademark Spire Range feet. The Spire bedstead has finely turned tapered posts which are lower than some of our other four poster beds making it suitable if you have a lower ceiling. The posts can also be removed giving this bed a completely different look.

To complete your walnut furniture bedroom there are co-ordinating pieces in a choice of sizes depending on the space available in your bedroom. For example different sized bedsides, chests of drawers with different drawer configurations and two, three and four door wardrobes.

We offer free delivery to most parts of the UK.

Gold La Rochelle Rococo Bed

Our Tudor style Carved Four Poster is a truly impressive bed with its full headboard and top canopy. It is even more impressive in full gold leaf!

Armoire or Wardrobe you decide?

13 July 2017

Is it Armoire, Wardrobe or neither? A wardrobe and an armoire are usually very similar pieces of furniture, and telling the difference can sometimes be a matter of opinion or favoured terminology rather than some particular characteristic or feature.

In most cases, an armoire is usually a bit bigger and typically more ornate, and it also generally has shelves rather than hanging rails. Wardrobes are often designed more with hanging clothes in mind, though there can be exceptions. Armoires are usually a bit more flexible, too, at least when it comes to what they can be used for. Although clothing storage may be the intended purpose, people can and often do use these pieces to house all sorts of things, including bed linen and towels or alternatively televisions or electronic equipment.

Armoire Wardrobe

Armoire Wardrobe…. the term “armoire” means “cupboard” in French. Like a wardrobe, an armoire typically is built as a tall cabinet with two doors and contains shelving or a long rod for hanging clothing, and it usually features much more ornate designs. These pieces tend to be bigger and bulkier, too, and are often incorporated within the décor of the room. In other words, they’re more than just functional; in most cases they’re also stylistic. Centuries ago, armoires were primarily used to store weapons and armor, which may explain why they’re normally bigger and heavier.

Wardrobes are almost always used for storing clothing and accessories, and they are usually intended to serve as external closets. Rooms without closets or with insufficient closet space often include a wardrobe to give more flexibility. It’s not uncommon to find mirrors affixed on the inside of the doors, along with small shelves for accessories and basic toiletries. In this way, the piece can serve as something of a prepping station to help people get ready.

A selection of some of our Wardrobes

Our Louis Philippe bedroom range is one of our most popular. To reflect this we have mahogany wardrobes available in both a two door and three door configuration. Our Triple Mahogany Wardrobe is the best choice for customers that need a lot of space! They are available in both an antique white paint finish and a wax polish.

Armoire Wardrobe

Louis Phillipe Wardrobe


If extra storage is a must our lovely mahogany Sleigh style Wardrobes are a great choice. They come with either two or four drawers below the doors. Combining both hanging and folding storage for your clothes and accessories. They feature panelled detailing on the doors and sides. The drawers are finished with brass swan handles and the doors with brass drop handles. As before they come in a choice of antique white or wax polish for the overall finish.

Armoire Wardrobe

Sleigh Wardrobe


A selection of some of our Armoires

All of our armoires feature gorgeous French styled intricate carvings. Our Elegance Armoire is available with a mirrored front and also in a similar style without. Both feature panelled sides and ornate cornice detail on top. The mirrored doors have carved detail and are finished with solid brass keyhole escutcheon plates. The non mirrored Armoire is finished in the same way but has intricate leaf carvings on the front doors. Both provide a choice of 2 removable shelves or a hanging rail on the inside. Available in antique white paint and a traditional wax polish.

Armoire Wardrobe


This is just a small selection of the beautiful and functional solid mahogany Wardrobes and Armoires that we offer from Lock Stock and Barrel Furniture. We can also offer a bespoke service on all of our items so the finish and measurements will be right for you.


The Traditional Solid Mahogany Bureau

16 June 2017

Long before the invention of the Internet, telephones and fax, the main means of communication was the written word; therefore, appropriate writing surfaces were required. Here at Lock, Stock and Barrel we have our very own Solid Mahogany Bureau for those of you who still like the traditional form of communication.

History of the Bureau

Traditionally a dark red fabric was draped over the top of a desk, in Latin the word for red is ‘burrus’, and from this the French derived the word bureau. The bureau evolved in the late 17th Century from portable boxes with sloping lids that were used as a writing surface. Made during the William and Mary period, the bureau had added space and storage from previous desks. By the 18th Century the bureau had incorporated a desk with a chest of drawers. The design of antique bureaus allowed for the development of pigeonholes, inkwells, slots and secret drawers.

During the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods the literate were still a minority so there were not as many antique bureaus in circulation from this period. Georgian bureaus tend to be larger in size with Edwardian and 19th Century ladies writing bureaus being a more delicate, attractive piece.

Solid Mahogany Bureau

Our Solid Mahogany Bureau

The Lock Stock and Barrel mahogany Bureau is an antique reproduction Georgian style Bureau made from solid mahogany wood. All our mahogany wood is sourced from sustainable plantations and crafted with traditional techniques.

The Bureau offers exceptional storage with five storage drawers and further small drawers inside. Not only is it perfect as a writing desk, the fold down desk area is more than suitable for a tablet or laptop.

The bureau is delivered in one piece so go ahead and place your order today and receive free delivery within 15 working days.


Mahogany Four Poster Beds

12 June 2017

Here at Lock, Stock and Barrel we have a wide range of solid mahogany four poster beds including traditional canopy beds, half testers and Tudor beds. 


The four-poster bed has a very long history and records show that the four-poster bed was in existence in the late 14th Century and early 15th Century. It was undeniably very symbolic of status and it was customary for royalty and noblemen to own a four-poster bed and anyone who had one was seen as being very successful indeed.

The origins of the four-poster bed are unknown. It is, however, thought to have derived in Austria before arriving in England where it soon became a part of the British aristocracy. Their members naturally fell for its uniqueness and stately style.

Mahogany Four Poster Beds

Our four poster beds are handcrafted using traditional techniques and they have intricate hand carved detailing.  Available with either a traditional wax polish or antique white paint finish (other finishes are available – see our bespoke section for more information).

When ordering your gorgeous new bed why not treat yourself to a new mattress and have it delivered at the same time. We offer a selection of high quality mattresses to compliment our range of beds.

Mahogany Four Poster Beds

Mahogany Four Poster Beds


Just one style in our range is a reproduction Queen Anne style four poster bed with canopy. The bed is hand carved on the head board and pillars with intricate detailing. The bed is hand crafted from solid mahogany wood and arrives in 6-8 packages and is partially assembled for easy transportation.

The 4 poster has poles suitable for hanging drapes which gives the option of dressing the bed to suit the setting. The bed is traditionally finished in a wax finish
