British Colonial Style is the adaptation of colonial style furniture as the British expanded their empire into Asia and the tropics. Solid, wood construction meets island elements like bamboo, rattan and plantation shutters in furniture which is beautiful yet functional, and suited for the new lands that became a part of the British Empire.

The Bridgetown Sink Chest by Cole & Co. is a perfect example of British Colonial style. The heavy chest of drawers vanity is embellished with bamboo detailing and brass palm tree key hole accents. See it at
