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 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.
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.
