ercol was established in 1920 by a young Italian immigrant, Lucian Ercolani, whose outright goal was to produce furniture that was well designed and made in a good working environment by craftsmen who really took pride in their jobs.
Design has always been at the core of ercol - design for function, design for comfort, design for beauty. As well as our dedicated in-house design team based in Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire, we appoint some of the best in British design talent, to bring you some exceptional furniture. Our designs constantly develop to reflect how you live today, whilst continually reflecting ercol's quality and craftsmanship. Practicality as well as appearance, be it in the ample storage of our sideboards and bedroom furniture, our ranges of occasional furniture catering for the provision of today's electronics and lifestyles, the flexibility of our extending dining tables, along with the comfort of our upholstery, or the smooth sophisticated movement of our recliners.
Our elm and ash ranges are available in a selection of timber finishes with a choice of over 100 different upholstery fabrics, however if preferred, we can even make your suite using your own fabric. Alternatively you can choose from one of our oak ranges finished soley with a protective clear lacquer, to show off this beautiful timber.
A great British company, ercol's designs are finished in our state of the art, purpose built factory in Buckinghamshire and by ercol's manufacturing partners around the world.
Caring for the environment comes instinctively to ercol, with our energy efficient factory, with its biomass boiler that is fuelled by our wood waste, and our avoidance of solvent based finishes, in favour of more environmentally friendly water based finishes, and of course in the use of sustainable timber to create our furniture.
