Latest Project: Retro Parker Knoll Rocking Chair in Yellow Wool

I loved this yellow marl wool so much when I used it on a vintage armchair earlier this year, that I knew I had to use it again on something else. Along came a couple of retro Parker Knoll rocking chairs and I knew that I would use the yellow wool on one of those. 

We have completely restored this Parker Knoll rocking chair, bringing it back up to date using a UK pure new felted wool.

The original beech wood frame has been refinished to a warm walnut tone, with a slight sheen - which complements the colour of the mustard yellow wool. The wool itself has a marl effect with grey strands running through it, which tones down the overall effect.

This chair is just so comfortable and those sweeping rockers provide the ultimate rocking motion. I could easily lose a few hours in this chair to a good book, or a snooze. It's compact size makes it perfect for the lounge, bedroom or even a nursery.
