In a week of coincidences, we have another repeat client with an "Ercol" suite. Not only that, but this client selected exactly the same fabric as a repeat client chose for their "Ercol" suite last week.
With the thousands of designs that we have to choose from, this is a staggering coincidence. Even allowing for the ebb and flow of popularity and fashion in the choice of fabrics, we were still surprised. In over 25 years of upholstering, we have only known this to happen once before, and that was only just a month ago.
The fabric in question is a best quality, flame-retardant, self coloured flatweave, with a boldly sized, yet subtly coloured floral pattern. This complements the dark wood and cane frame beautifully. This style of fabric is very "on trend" currently, as is the use of co-ordinating fabrics on the same piece of furniture. Part of the reason for the popularity of this fabric is its ability to keep looking good for many years, and being very easy to keep clean.
We also replaced existing seat cushion interiors with best quality flame retardant "Reflex" interiors, which carry a ten-year guarantee. They were wrapped in a secondary casing, comprising Dacron and stockinette, to prolong cushion life. We also replaced existing back cushions with best quality flame retardant "Fibre-fill" interiors. The combination of "Reflex" and "Fibre-fill" ensures maximum comfort, quality and durability.
All three pieces were completely stripped back to the frames and all interiors replaced with best quality flame retardant interiors to ensure the suite was restored to "as new".
Lastly, both seat and back cushions were finished with rope cord seven scatter cushions completed the look.
Our clients also chose to have a "Guardsman" fabric protection treatment applied to all three pieces.
Once again, our clients loved their "new" furniture said it was "brand new". We look forward to seeing them again when they next require our services!
