This fine example of an Ercol Chair.
Always a pleasure to work with. Our customer chose a plaid shade to coordinate with the bentwood English elm, a perfect fresh look.
A little about Ercol
Since 1944 Ercol have was produced chairs with a bentwood frame and an arched back supporting delicate spindles. The wood selected was English elm – a wood previously thought impossible to bend because it distorted.
Really ‘on-trend’ Retro Furniture
Some chairs just have ‘IT’ and this sweet 1960’s easy chair I love.
Really neat so it fits in our modern homes. A delicate colour chosen by our customer in a beautiful to the touch wool mix by Linwood. Very fashionable at the moment, will always be a classic and very comfortable too.
The word retro signifies looking backward. When designers, manufacturers and customers speak about retro furniture, we are referring to a style of furniture that looks back with nostalgia and pays homage to styles that were popular in the past. Currently furniture designers are inspired by 60s and 70s – this one is the genuine item.
Namely, retro furniture was popular in the decades of 1950s, 1960s, 1970s. Recently, the industry has added the 80s to the list, which personally I am shocked at. I love 1960’s like this chair but the 80s?
