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.
During the early 80s, Matthew worked as an industrial designer for the product design company Capa in London, before setting up the Matthew Hilton Design Studio in 1985 to work with a number of renowned manufacturers and retailers – most recently including ercol. Matthew was awarded Designer of the Year at The British Design Awards 2008.
