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 has 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.
We restore Ercol Bentwood Chairs and sofas including restoration of the wood frame. We clean down, check joints and re-wax. This keeps the originality but protects the wood better, brings out the lustre and keeps them solid for daily use.
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?
This is a stunning classic style of sofa in a modern style and fabric
About Knole Sofa
A Knole Sofa was made in the 17th century. It is housed at Knole in Kent, a house owned by the Sackville-Wests since 1605 but now in the care of the National Trust. It was originally used not as comfortable sofa but as a formal throne on which the monarch would have sat to receive visitors. It features adjustable side arms and considerable depth of seating, it usually has exposed wooden finials at the rear corner tops, and some exposed wood may be present on the otherwise arms. The arms, more correctly sides, are of the same height. The side arms are tied to the sofa back by means of heavy decorative braid, often with an elaborate tassel.
A customer chose a really fresh choice of fabric colour-way with a matching braid. These classics look beautiful in any home setting, modern or traditional. Not only beautifully made but they are surprisingly heavy. Try picking one up, you’ll get a bit of a shock! Oh and i love the colours!
