what I've always liked about it is the light wood panelling, built in bookshelves and claustrophobic kitchen. It's a very warm apartment, I hate ultra modern sleek white and bling bling places. Frasiers is warm yet extremely cool. The view is cool but I'm going to build a model view like the set of the Late Show with David Letterman.

Also note how you can tell it's a quality effort because it hasn't really dated since the mid 90s when it was designed as a set. Look at the set of Friends that was designed at around the same time, I always hated it but it looks even worse now, incredibly horrible, that shabby chic fad shit that my mum liked then. That's my aim also to have a timeless space. Already started getting some timeless furniture just need a house to put it in.

Grand Designs house was cool, only thing I didn't like was lack of bathroom doors in bedroom.

Frasier's apartment has aged extremely well, that's the beauty of being eclectic Ubercool

You'll need to re-cushion and reupholster it. So you've have to factor in that price. Are you still in Bristol? There's a guy on North Street who's pretty reasonable. I'd say given you need to re-upholster it's maybe a couple hundred over asking. IMO.

Actually I'm not looking to buy, I've got one. I've just no idea what to ask for it! Mine needs some of the webbing repaired but I've since made some new cushions for it and re-upholstered. Otherwise it's in great nick. knew it was worth a bit but got excited when I saw that one up for so much!

I'd say not Nick. I don't know Guy Rogers & although it looks reasonably well made its certainly not Danish & i'm guessing it's a company that made scandi looking furniture perhaps with an unknown designer paid to ape that style.If you're paying that kind of money you'd be better investing in something well made like a france & son made piece from grete Jalk peter hvidt or ole wanscher

edit - Sorry Nick just seen your comment above.I'm not sure how much you'd get for it but that price looks a bit of a try on. There's a dealer on here - NickMSM - who will be able to give you a good idea on how much you'd expect to get for it

He's pushing it hard with that price. Picked up a perfect condition old daybed (probably german/austrian rather than danish mind) for 400ish the other day. Can get danish reupholstered jobs for the kind of price he's asking.

No offence but I would say it not actually being danish is the key feature that "gives it away"., also the "made in england" is a slight hint. Denmark is a country not a trademark/manufacturer/designer. Just because it's made out of teak or whatever and looks abit sleek and midcentury don't make it danish.
