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**

Rocking Chair

1960s Parker Knoll Rocking Chair
This story started when my very generous boyfriend brought me an upholstery course for my birthday complete with a little tool box! After the initial excitment I quickly tracked down this gorgeous rocking chair in West Yorkshire and spent an intensive week replacing the tired old floral fabric with bright yellow woven upholstery Рcomplete with zip and piping and perfect for bringing a bit of sunshine into your life! Sold**
