Reupholstery Before and After – Ercol Day Bed Style
Christianna’s London home is graced by a lovely Ercol day bed reupholstered with charming Designers Guild fabrics, which are a pretty respite from its original tan color (cleverly disguised in the “before” photo with a turquoise throw). Blessed with a capable friend who kindly reupholstered the vintage 1960s piece, Christianna opted to replace the stiff back cushions with comfortable, relaxing bedroom pillows — smartly covered with removable (and reversible) covers. With a flick of her wrist and a change of her mood, Christianna can revamp the look of her vintage Ercol day bed by flipping over her pillows. Paired with matching Ercol armchairs, this set is perhaps one of the best charity shop finds in all of London!
May this New Year bring inspiration to revamp, repurpose, and reupholster! Happy 2009!
