WIN A HERDWICK STOOLby Niamh McCooey
As London Design Fair opens its doors to traders today, we at Selvedge are delighted to finally open our collaborative installation to the public, made with Ercol and Solidwool. You’ll find our playful installation at the Selvedge stand (PS1) all weekend where our collection of bespoke, limited edition Herdwick stools go back to their woollen roots with a special tongue in cheek twist.
Championing sustainability and natural products, we have created 30 stools that combine Ercol’s solid oak under-frame and legs of the award-winning Svelto stool, with Solidwool tops made by combining resin with the wool of the Lake District’s Herdwick sheep. Visitors to the fair are invited to learn about this ingenious new material at our whimsical sheep pen keeping all of our precious stools intact throughout the fair. Visitors can even purchase the stools throughout the show, and if you can't make it you can learn more about them on our own website here.
For those feeling a little lucky, you can also be in with a chance to win one of five of these limited edition Herdwick stools worth £250. To enter you just need to do three things. First, post a photo of the stools on Instagram. Second, use the hastag #HerdwickStool and third, tag @ercol_uk, @solidwool and @selvedgemagazine in your post. Each of the winners will be announced on the 27th of September 2017 via Instagram. Good luck, and we look forward to seeing you all at London Design Fair over the weekend!
