Last year, just before my birthday, Paul did something so spectacularly cheeky that he’s blotted it from his memory. He phoned our friend Artur to ask if he would sell his Ercol daybed to him for my birthday present! Artur said no, but I was pretty impressed with just the idea (and the chutzpah!).
This year, Artur phoned us just before my birthday to say that actually, he had decided to sell his daybed, and did we want it? Well, of course we did, and now, even though it wasn’t officially my birthday present, I’ll always think of it like that.
There’s a bit of work to do on it, so it’s in Paul’s studio (with some legs on it). Can’t wait to get it home though.
Check out a little eBay slideshow of another Ercol daybed here. I’m still in a daze that we actually have one of our own!
