The Wychwood suite which consisted also of a three (721/3) and two seat (721/2) sofa was one of Ercol's 'The Soft Touch' ranges of fully-upholstered living room furniture. It boasted a strong frame of 'Solid English Elm'. The term 'zip-off' is used for a removable cover in Ercol Furniture' 79 brochure.
