Has anyone here made a replica of Del Boy Trotters apartment to live in?

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

Cheers lanz, I'll give that guy a shout. out of interest what are the key features that give it away as not being Danish?

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.
