Preparation Tips for Seamless Furniture Delivery

Purchasing new furniture is a milestone moment. Before settling your furniture into its new home, read through our preparation recommendations to make delivery as seamless as possible.



What We're Giving

Handmade, locally sourced gifts are a special way to show appreciation and love. Our team is excited to share our favorite Chilton accessories in this gift guide, from the soy candles we burn in our showrooms and homes to the Maine made mugs from which we drink our morning brew.


New Product Spotlight: Originally Designed Dining Furniture for the Holidays

Though there is a heavy shadow over holiday celebrations this year, at Chilton, we are finding strength by continuing to do what we love as safely as we can. We recently opened a new showroom in Portland, Maine and have continued to leverage our local designer and maker partnerships to expand our offering of original designs by introducing four new dining...


Why does wood change color?

Just as our skin is affected by sunny beach trips and drinking the recommended eight glasses of water per day, wood, too, responds to its environment. Once a living, breathing tree, natural wood furniture will continue to evolve even after the last edge is sanded and corner finished. One of the coolest phenomena is the continuing aging process of wood...



What does “Scandinavian Inspired” Mean?

At Chilton, we do not try to imitate designs born in Scandinavian countries and then call our pieces “Scandinavian style”. When I say ours are inspired by Scandinavian design, I’m referring to our appreciation of and agreement with the general philosophy of Scandinavian design. 


A New Beginning

If you’re a Mainer or long time follower of Chilton Furniture Co., you may have noticed some changes in recent years.  Almost five years ago, ownership of our two stores, located in Freeport and Scarborough, ME changed hands, and we began an evolution from a furniture store celebrating traditional styles to a design-led brand offering a selection of traditional and...




Happy New Year from Chilton Furniture

Happy New Year! Thank you for helping to make 2018 a successful year for Chilton. We experienced several important milestones in 2018, including:



Adding 'Hygge' to your Home

Chilton owners Jen and Jared Levin offer tips on how furniture can help you Hygge up your home this winter.


Conventional or Platform Bed?

All mattresses require a certain amount of underside support to ensure proper comfort and compliance with mattress manufacturer warranties. We are frequently asked about the difference between a "conventional" (requiring a box spring) or a "platform" bed frame, and whether one is better than the other.


THE SHAKER CONNECTION TO MODERN DESIGN

To come up with their fresh, modern designs, Jen and Jared Levin, of Chilton Furniture, draw inspiration from a 300-year-old religious sect.


White Glove Delivery

Chilton offers nation-wide white glove delivery service, which means that your furniture will be carefully blanket wrapped, transported to your home, carried inside, and assembled, as needed. Your charge is a flat rate based upon delivery distance from Maine, and includes an unlimited number of pieces (a particularly good value for larger orders). Delivery times can take between two and nine weeks, depending on location and distance from our Maine warehouse. For deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii, or otherwise outside of the continental US, please call our showrooms to inquire about delivery options.

We are currently offering a free or reduced delivery offer for larger orders.  Please see details below.*

Chilton Delivery Map

"The delivery service was wonderful. All the furniture was wrapped to protect it from any damage. Chris and Chad did a great job unwrapping and carefully assembled and set everything up where we wanted it ... They did a great clean up afterwards. They made sure that we were happy with the furniture and its positioning before they would leave. Thank you!" - Tom & Cathy K.
