Ever since coming across our first pieces of Ercol furniture – a vintage set that had been passed down through two generations – we have been endlessly impressed with the British furniture maker. This vintage set was for us, a true testament to Ercol’s time-honoured commitment to quality materials and exquisite craftsmanship.
