You may remember me making the purchase of a lifetime a few months back (http://itsonlyvintagebutilikeit.com/home/its-only-ercol-but-i-like-it/). I had hankered after one of these vintage Ercol sofas for years and finally nabbed one for a reasonable price on eBay.

This is where it lives now and how I’ve accessorised it. I went for a mess of big bold cushions and its nestled in a corner of my dining room. I was worried it might not be comfortable but the sprung base makes it very comfy, and the replaced elasticated weave underneath means it doesn’t sag either. Lots of overstuffed cushions mean you can recline with ease too.

I’ve added some of my favourite Nikki McWilliams (http://www.nikkimcwilliams.com) biscuit cushions. I’ve been buying Nikki’s stuff for years now and this Christmas the Dr treated me to a dark chocolate Tunnocks Caramel Wafer which blends in perfectly.

It is with a place to recline and relax I say:

It’s only vintage but I like it!
