Ercol is a British furniture manufacturer founded in 1920 by Lucian Ercolani in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.
In 2002 Ercol moved to a new purpose-built facility in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire, where it produces furniture made from North American elm and European ash, beech, oak and walnut from naturally regenerative forests. This factory has won a number of awards for its architecture, design and environmental features.
Ercol sources its fabrics from mills in Italy and Belgium and offers a choice of over 100 different fabrics on its upholstery.
The Originals collection including the Butterfly and Stacking Chairs, Studio Couch, Nest of Tables and Windsor Dining Table, reflected a break from the heavy, ornate pre-war styles towards a new clean-lined, simple elegance. They were first launched in the late 1950s and are now being reissued.
‘Design has always been at the heart of Ercol – design for comfort, design for function, design for beauty.’
