This love seat was designed by Ercol in 1954 using its steam-bent wood technique. It has been re-launched for 2009.
Both practical and affordable, linoleum flooring was at the height of its popularity during the fifties and is still in production today in a huge range of colours and finishes.
To steal the 1950s style, accessorise with chintzy floral fabrics.
