Ercol

contemporary british furniture since 1920

Ercol was founded in England in 1920 by a young Italian, Lucian Ercolani. His simple goal was to make furniture that was well designed and made in a good working environment by craftsmen who took real pride in their jobs. Design has always been at the heart of Ercol’s rich history – design for comfort, design for function and design for beauty.

Today, Ercol remains a family owned company committed to protecting and sharing its highly celebrated legacy. This is achieved through a time-honoured commitment to innovation in manufacturing and design. The company has worked closely with some of the best contemporary designers to produce modern furniture, beautifully crafted from sustainable timbers.
