Mid Century Vintage Furniture

Ercol Suite

I recently revamped an Ercol Wychwood suite.  I have touched on the importance of the furniture frame before in my blog, but with this suite, as with many Ercol models, the frame is visible and showcases craftsmanship at its best. The British Elm wood grain is beautiful and the solid frame is so well made and well designed that this furniture is well worth the expense of  re-upholstering. A good upholsterer should be able to create the foam insert when the  foam eventually perishes. If the foam is in good condition and the cover only is worn, then replacement covers are also worthwhile investing in. Replacement buttons can be made providing you have spare fabric of course, and are very easy to attach using a long buttoning needle and forming a slip knot through the plastic button at the back, and then pulled to the required depth.

Bespoke furniture in the mid-century style can be made to compliment your originals as with small chair .. more examples of mid century style upholstered furniture coming soon....
