Canal Dover Furniture Company’s range of bedroom furniture is made from solid American hardwood and crafted by experienced woodworking specialists. The 28 collections – yes, 28 collections – offer you a fabulous choice of furniture regardless of your bedroom’s decorative style.
We’re reviewing two of these here, from opposite ends of the spectrum. -The first is the Jamestown collection, which reflects the old colonial days when our ancestors banded together to drive out the English and claim this great nation as their own. Now, thanks to them.
The second is the Pacific Collection, a modern looking black and white bedroom furniture collection that showcases very clean lines and contrasts, and might even attract envious glances from your teenagers, who knows what they are thinking! However, it is an option that you can offer them, although it is high quality furniture, handmade with the most demanding standards of craftsmanship.
The Jamestown Bedroom Furniture Collection
The Jamestown bedroom furniture collection is a colonial style of furniture, available in maple, oak, and cherry with various wood finishes. The wood stains used enhance the grain and beautiful patterns of natural wood. The range is made up of eight pieces, of which two are the panel bed and the wrought iron bed, the difference being in the headboards.
The panel bed’s 60-inch-high headboard consists of a top rail above three small panels, with two large panels below them. The alternative has a beautiful wrought iron scroll in place of the top panels. You really must see this to appreciate it. Each bed is available in Queen, King, and California King sizes. Running boards measure 24 inches tall.
Also included are a dresser with a 42-inch square mirror and a dresser with a 59-inch L x 25-inch H mirror. The dresser consists of six half-width drawers, while the dresser also has 6 drawers plus three narrower drawers above it.
There are also two 56-inch-tall chests: a 26-inch-wide lingerie chest and a 38-inch-wide regular chest. Add a nightstand and nightstand and you have the complete ensemble. The design is traditional colonial and this set would look great in any style of bedroom.
The Pacific Collection
For this review, we looked at the Dover Pacific Canal Collection in maple with a distressed white soapstone finish and oak with satin black paint. It was the striking black and white contrast that caught our eye. Your children will surely prefer it to the Colonial collection. Generally, the drawers are white and the frame is black.
The bed is a loft bed, again in Queen, King, and California King sizes. The platform is 10 inches tall and the four optional flat rectangular headers measure between 46 and 52 inches tall, starting from ground level.
The 7-drawer lingerie chest is 54 inches tall, and a regular 6-drawer 48-inch chest is also an option. Add to that a black and white 6 drawer dresser and a uniquely styled nightstand, and you have here an attractive bedroom furniture set that will suit mostly younger elements and those who prefer to stray away from wood finishes. traditional.
Other bedroom collections
Once you see these two Canal Dover bedroom furniture collections, you can imagine the other collections that lie in between, such as the wonderful Shaker and the beautiful Brooklyn collections. In case you can’t see something online or in the showroom that catches your eye, you can choose from several wood finishes. Often the only difference between vintage and modern bedroom furniture is the difference in wood finish and paint color.
Dover Canal Furniture Construction
Like most handcrafted furniture, Canal Dover furniture is made using high quality sustainable wood and traditional carpentry techniques. Most rail joints are made with mortise and tenon joints, while cabinet and drawer front, back and sides are joined with strong dovetails. The catalytic varnishes used provide a very resistant surface that resists shock and heat more than normal varnishes. Seven-step catalyzed curing varnishes are the longest lasting varnishes used in the industry.

The choice is huge and the quality is amazing – you can see it just by looking at it and touching it. Those in the know can tell quality by feel – all Canal Dover furniture has that feel, and it’s 100% Made in America!
