HERITAGE

 

The Chalon family founded the kitchen company we know today as an antique restoration business in 1978. In 1981, the business was moved to its current site at the Old Hambridge Mill, at Hambridge, in the midst of the Somerset Levels (in South West England). Michael and Rose Chalon began producing furniture designed to emulate the classic elegance of 18th and 19th Century English furniture. Their bold and open styling was complemented by a unique paint effect developed to provide a distressed finish as if each piece had naturally aged in an English country house.

Today, under new ownership, our craftsmen continue to develop and evolve the Chalon portfolio. Predominantly English in style, our designs have been flavoured by particular influences from France, Scandinavia and Ireland to develop a distinctive house style.

Whilst concentrating on kitchens, the Chalon range has been extended from its origins in freestanding furniture to include dining rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, studies, and libraries – every room of the home. In more recent years, kitchen trends have seen Chalon develop furniture for utility rooms and pantries, as well as integrating the modern appliances that are required for today's living. Complementary products such as lighting were added to the portfolio in 2010.

Since the company's foundation over 30 years ago, the Chalon brand's reputation has grown and now receives global recognition. Through its own showrooms, the company has a presence in each of the key regions of the UK and has a number of agents representing Chalon overseas. The company is looking to expand its international focus and is working with UKTI as part of a co-ordinated export drive.
