Camira Zap fabric is modern and exciting.
Here's is what they say about it....

In just one word Zap describes this upholstery fabric. It packs a real punch thanks to its vibrant, clean, saturated, comic book, jelly bean colours. Zap has the softness of young wool, the toughness of a steel watch spring. Zap is incomparable wherever super-wear is desired with colour impact, excitement, interest. Zap is a now and future fabric.

There are 18 shades available, ask Camira for samples then ask us for a quote. Make sure you are sitting down!

We were delighted when the Queen's Hall asked us to quote for replacement cushions in their 200 year old building. The old curved pews are protected items of historical interest.
There are 50 different cushions, not any two the same, & each needing a separate pattern. Some were as small as approx 2.5 metres in length, the ones at the back as long as at least 5 metres.
We used Vitafoam CM50 foam and our all wool Pillar Blue. All went well!
Our driver & driver's mate also made the patterns!

Cornwall Week!


A customer from Truro had the fabric sent straight to us from Style Library.
This Scion Neo Candy Pop fabric is right on trend. Our Izzy says that it's lovely to sew. In November we had the same fabric, but different mix of colours.
I hope to get pictures in situ from the customer.

A favourite Ercol 427 in a sophisticated Moon Deepdale Dove 100% wool fabric bought from the Abraham Moon Mill Shop in York.

We really like this fabric, and something different too is the fact that our customer didn't want the flap on the back. It exposes the webbing, but so what?

We added the piping, as requested, to enhance it all.

Looking good Georgi, thanks for coming to us with your work.

Joynston Holland Rocker


Joynston Holland Rocker

We just made the cushions for a customer. It's not an Ercol but it is one made on the same Ercol principles. It's got steam bent timber & spindles & was originally made by a company called Joynston Holland which sadly went bust in 2009 leaving 70 people out of work.
It is possible that some of the workers went to Ercol, since the company was in High Wycombe as were Ercol up to 2002, before they moved down the road to Princess Risborough.
This painted frame looks good with our light grey stitch covered cushions.

Our drivers delivered to Ratho Parish Church. It's well worth a visit. Google it before you go, it has very old parts to it & like all good churches it's always in a state of flux.

The Minister Rev Wells was there to greet the drivers & seemed well pleased.

Today we heard from Tricia who made the purchase on behalf of the congregation.

Good morning Keri

Just wanted to let you know that our congregation are delighted with the new pew cushions.

They are very comfortable and brighten up the church.

Thank you

Seen here first on a 252 then on a 203. We had enough fabric, hence the little added extra that our Helen likes to do.
This pattern cheered us all on this Winter like day.

One of the pictures shows a small sample back cushion for the congregation to try. They definately now have new comfort for the seats and hopefully they will return for the small back cushions.

It's Manhattan Ellis from Camira Fabrics. I borrowed the description below from the Camira website.

Manhattan is a dobby weave fabric with a modern, geometric texture mimicking the architectural grid system within an urban landscape. Made from 100% recycled polyester, the fabric has in-built stretch for easy upholstery. The global colour palette follows the colour blocking and modular fashion trend.

Every credit to whoever wrote that! I've google 20 times & I'm still not sure of what it means!
Anyway it's on its way to Bromley & it's looking good.

Honeycomb is a colour woven polyester fabric inspired by architectural structures found in nature and copied by man. The hexagonal shapes of the beehive have long been imitated for their strength and uniformity. Natural engineering at its best.

Honeycomb is available in 9 colour mixes. The bolder shades of the pattern outline are softened with a stria of coloured threads.


Yes well meanwhile it's on its way to Bromley, & it looks great.

For comfort, style and exclusivity, these will be the real deals of all real deals. Brexit or no Brexit, choosing Safefoam will be the right decision, & you don't need politicians to decide for you. Otherwise it might take 2 or 3 years & we want you to buy now.

Top Quality Foam Seat and Back Cushion for extra comfort and style.

This is true stylish leather & we think it looks great on the Ercol 203. To ask for samples you can go the the Futura Leather website and look at the Birch Range. Choose a colour & ask Futura to send it to you.

This is a fabulous fabric from a good new customer.
We've used it before on an Ercol Daybed, this time on an Ercol 203 3 seater.

The original Ercol design for this model is to have 3 seat cushions and 3 backs. Trying to keep all 6 cushions looking tidy is almost a full time job! Best way to keep them looking good is to never sit on the settee!
Or why not do it our way? One mattress looking a bit like the Daybed & just two backs. This way they rarely go out of place.
The fabric was sent straight to us from Style Library on our customer's behalf.

Mrs Stevens sent us the picture above of one of the cane furniture cushions we made for her. She supplied her own fabric. In a note she wrote with her order she flattered us by saying,

I was so pleased with the replacement Ercol seats you did for me earlier in the year, I'm sure these will be excellent.


In June we made her 4 Ercol Dining Seat Pads fixed with Velcro, again in her own fabric.

The Charcoal with Orange Piping, Ercol Daybed Mattress, well on trend

 

 

June  2018

 

We have made so many Ercol dining seat cushions and covers, I think our cutters and sewers can do them with their eyes shut tight!

Really though, we take great pride in hand cutting every Ercol cushion cover so that it will be exactly matching the next one.

Our foam however is cut by computer so that every single piece is the same. Here below is another set of Dining Seat cushions for a lady in Edinburgh, with a big table!

 

The fabric is 100% wool, the tartan pattern will be a memory for the family who are emigrating to Canada.

 

 

February  2018

 

 

 

Mrs Hunt ordered these Ercol Dining Seats in Green. (one of our current in stock fabrics, I think we have about 10 different greens available). Ercol Diners are available in two sizes. This size is bigger than our chair!

However the picture shows the quality of work, the poppers and tapes all ready to press stud on to the chair.

 

 

 

 

 

Mrs Greenhalgh from Durham chose this fantastic Camira Hazy Blue fabric for her Ercol Single Bed Mattress & asked for 3 matching scatters. If there's anyone in doubt about whether they have an Ercol Daybed

or an Ercol Single bed the answer is here for all to see. The length is the same, the daybed is 28 inches wide & the single bed is 36 inches wide.

 

 

 

 

Mrs Neil from Essex chose this Covertex Oleandro 1414 Orange for her Ercol ensemble. We did 2 of the 203 chairs.

 

 

 

New Venture!

 

 

 

Mrs Shaw from Watford bought the fantastic Ercol daybed cushions and also 2 x seats and backs Ercol 335 cushions in this our brilliant 100% pure wool fabric. We hope she likes them both.

 

 

 

This version of the Ercol 203 2 seater settee is becoming popular. The fewer the cushions, the less the fuss! This customer's choice.

We are happy to do them any way.

Ercol's designer preferred 4 cushions, we started off with 4, then preferred one seat with two backs, we do that also on the 3 seater. Making for a bigger mattress, a wannabee daybed!

Coruisk Memorial Hut

Hi Keri,

 

That's payment made! The mattresses have now been fitted, tested and approved - a huge improvement over the old bunks.

Can you point me towards some fire safety data please since I now need to update our Risk Assessment for the hut.

I've attached a couple of photos, one looking out from Elgol jetty in the direction of the hut (it really is out there, just right of centre hiding behind an outcrop) and one of the old -v- new bunks.

A pleasure doing business with you.

Regards,

Iain

 

We were pleased to be given this opportunity to make mattresses and memory foam pillows for this unique mountain hut.................

We recently delivered to this small church in a tiny village, Llanegryn, in Gwynedd, North Wales.

The current population of the village is only 400. Our driver took this picture of the church and the village

war memorial. We thought it fitting as a tribute to all who lost their lives in the Great War that we should

put the picture here at this poignant time. From such a small village there was a huge loss of life. Carved in the stone is,

"In loving memory of the boys from this village who lost their lives in the Great War". There were indeed

14 poor young men who died.
