The majority of our chest of drawers arrive flat packed, accompanied with easy to follow step by step instructions to assemble each part of the product one by one. As with any flat pack furniture for safe and easy construction we would recommend this item to be assembled by two people, as it may be a heavy piece of furniture.


  • Assemble with a blanket or sheet on the floor to protect your new piece of furniture from scratches, as well as your floor.
  • Assemble as close to intended final room position, as this is a large, heavy product to manoeuvre. Keep your hardware in a bowl to prevent losing any!
  • Using power tools is strongly not advised, as this could cause some damage and will also invalidate the warranty.
