Original Vintage Ercol Model 477 Armchair with Orange Cushions
Immediately recognisable as Ercol, this Model 477 armchair in light blond wood is the perfect easy chair. Its open wooden frame looks handsome from all sides and make it less bulky and cumbersome than more traditional lounge chairs. We love its wide, welcoming stance and its upturned arms. It’s in overall great order, well made and sturdy with fitted cushions and taut webbing (so often not). And those cushions are a crowd-pleasing, lightly textured, velvet orange, specifically designed and contoured for this chair model. The colour is neutral enough to mix well with other palettes. These chairs work in any room in the modern home, from bedroom to conservatory to family space to lounge.
This is an original, used chair that is ‘sold as seen’. This armchair has been well looked after and is in good – very good, vintage condition. We have cleaned, oiled and polished the wooden frame. There are signs of wear and tear to the original finish, most notably on the arms which always bear the brunt of use. We’ve opted to leave this along as we feel it’s in line with the chair’s age and part of its character. If you wished to refinish and varnish this, you could as it’s solid wood. Browse our photos for a good sense of the frame’s condition. The Pirelli webbing is in very good order, taut and sag-free. The two upholstered cushions in a textured orange velvet are in very good order too with plump inner foams, working zips and no marks. It’s worth noting that if the fabric isn’t to your taste, these bespoke cushions could be recovered, a significant time and cost saving. If you research ‘Ercol cushions’ you will see these alone command a high price. It also comes with two accompanying down-filled, square scatter cushions. Sadly blue Ercol sticker is no affixed to the back of the chair but we attribute it with 100% confidence and we date it to the 1970s. Please refer to our photos for an accurate sense of its condition. If you have any questions or would like to view this chair, please do get in touch.
