Escape to Somerset Bay and you enter into a realm where a coastal palette stimulates your senses, relaxation washes over you, and the chaos of everyday life fades away. Timeless designs and evocative textures blend seamlessly to create a superbly appointed environment, a place to live, entertain, or escape. With a collection inspired by some of the most impressive coastal locales - Nantucket, Newport, Carmel, Bar Harbor, to name a few - you can expect an equally impressive product. Somerset Bay raises the standard in design and construction. Each piece is handcrafted from the finest plantation grown, kiln-dried mahogany and premium veneers and trim. Craftsmen use state-of-the-art techniques to produce the timeless soft Somerset Bay patina in a 6 step finishing process. Their skills can further be seen in the distressing, dry-brushing, and antiquing that shapes the character of each piece of handcrafted furniture. And a closer inspection will reveal drawers constructed of renewable, plantation grown mahogany and made with traditional dovetail joints. Somerset Bay Essex Chest shown in creme brulee.
