Rare Ercol Windsor single bed, model 358. Alternative to studio couch/day bed
Rare mid century Ercol Model 358 beech Windsor single bed with bow-shaped head and foot ends. Dimensions: width 3ft; length overall 7ft; mattress length 6ft 2. Height at headboard: approx 89cm; and at footboard 60cm. This is a slightly wider and taller - and rarer and less pricey! - alternative to Ercol's studio couch/day bed. Sadly though I'm having to resell as it won't fit up the narrow stairs in my home - so please note the width and the height at the headboard. The webbing is in very good condition (the previous owner told me it had been replaced in 2020). The mattress is in good useable condition - with webbing lines showing on the reverse side. Ercol specialists Safefoam still make mattresses for the Model 358 bed, and I'm told that's where this mattress came from. There are two metal stretcher bars along the width of the bed on the underside - you can see them in picture 6. The legs on the higher end of the bed have at some point had the wedges chiselled out of the mortise and tenon joints (see pic), presumably to allow them to be removed, and the gap filled with wax (see the last pic , which also shows the Ercol'358' stamp). The previous owner reported using the bed as is.
I'm told by a furniture maker that if you wanted to do this, new wedges could be added and the joints then re-glued. Other than this the frame looks to be in great condition. Pics of the wrapped bed show it now, ready for collection. The item "Rare Ercol Windsor single bed, model 358.
