Ercol Armchairs in Melin Trefriw Wool

A pair of Ercol Armchairs reupholstered in Welsh wool from Melin Trefriw.

As we often do, we replaced the back cushions with bespoke feather cushions to show off the spindles on the chairs a bit more. It was great to work with cloth from Melin Trefriw - it's not really an upholstery fabric in that it isn't treated and doesn't have a rub test figure so we don't often get the chance to use it but as far as I'm concerned it's better than a good deal of 'proper' upholstery fabric on the market.

But it's such a great traditional Welsh tapestry design that even though it doesn't have the required cigarette test certificate for upholstery I think we'll take the risk that it wont spontaneously combust. And who smokes now anyway? And have you ever tried burning a Welsh blanket? No chance mate.
