Vintage Ercol Child's Chair

The slightly larger version of the classic Ercol kids 'blue spot' chair. The wood is a lovely mellow colour, evenly prescuffed and worn. It is structurally sound and has that lovely air of having survived lots of children already and ready to take on a few more. You can snap this up at Winter's Moon for £54

I warn you now though, you can loose hours browsing that site!

ps. I highly recommend Slugs & Snails and Matt's other photography... check out too!
