Ercol

 

Ercol is a furniture brand that was founded in 1920 by Lucian Ercolani, an Italian furniture designer who had immigrated to England. Ercol initially started as a small workshop in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, where Ercolani began designing and producing high-quality, handcrafted furniture.

In the early years, Ercolani focused on producing chairs, using traditional woodworking techniques to create elegant and functional designs. However, as the company grew, he began to expand the range of furniture that they produced, incorporating new materials and styles to create a wider range of products.

During the 1950s and 1960s, Ercol became known for its innovative designs and commitment to quality craftsmanship. The company began to produce a range of new furniture styles, including the iconic Windsor chair, which featured a distinctive curved backrest and spindle legs.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Ercol continued to expand its product range, incorporating new materials such as plastic and metal into its designs. The company also began to focus on more contemporary styles, reflecting the changing tastes and trends of the time.

In recent years, Ercol has continued to evolve, combining its heritage of traditional craftsmanship with modern design techniques and sustainable materials. Today, Ercol is recognized as one of the leading furniture brands in the UK, with a reputation for producing high-quality, stylish furniture that is built to last.
