1960s Ercol Grandfather Rocker

This is Ercol rocking chair is super sized for super comfort. Made using solid elm planks & beech wood spindles it really is quite splendid! The seat pad is low & very generous allowing you to tuck right into it – perfect for rocking in front of the fire on a cold winter night. I managed to pick up two of these old relic’s in a nearby junkshop, and even got a discount for buying both! Getting them home in our little car was a bit eventful – we stuffed one in the back & the other took up my spot in the passenger seat leaving me to walk home in the snow! Sold**


Teak Freak!

teak Lounge Chair
1960s Teak Lounge Chair
Made by British manufacturer ‘Centa’ this lounge chair has a striking shape and the curved arm rests show the quality of the craftsmanship. Made expertly from my favourite wood – teak, it boasts simplistic clean lines & perfect proportions. Bringing it back to its former glory required lots of teak oil, polish and good old fashioned elbow grease. The pirelli webbing had also perished so I tried my hand at that too with great results! This one came to me as part of a pair from Worcester.¬†Sold**
