This turned out to be a very busy week in the workshop, with a five piece "Ercol" suite being re-upholstered as well. The suite comprises a two seater sofa, three armchairs and a footstool. Once again, the choice was for a flatweave tapestry fabric in an abstract, lightly textured pattern that really enhanced the classic lines of this lovely furniture.
The seat cushion interiors and arm cushion interiors were showing signs of use, so they were re-filled with best quality flame retardant "Reflex" interiors. This interior filling is used to ensure maximum comfort, quality and durability. It also carries a ten-year guarantee. The cushions were also wrapped in a secondary casing, comprising Dacron and stockinette, to prolong cushion life. The existing back cushion interiors were in good order and therefore did not need to be replaced. They were, however, re-worked to restore them to "as new" and wrapped in a secondary casing, as detailed above, to prolong cushion life. Lastly, we completely re-sprung the armchairs and footstool with best quality flame retardant "Pirelli" rubber webbing to ensure they are all restored to "as new", both in terms of their look and their feel.
Our clients said they were really chuffed at how well it came out.
