A traditional British company, Ercol design furniture for comfort, function and beauty. Ercol was founded by Lucian Ercolani, a young designer who started his business in High Wycombe the chair-making capital of England.


Ercolani perfected the technique of steam-bending wood and how to 'tame' elm; a beautifully grained hardwood other furniture makers considered impossible to work with. Now based in Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire, Ercol’s furniture is produced by both the in house design team and also commissioned by some of the best in British design talent.
Ercol’s designs are made in their state of the art, purpose built factory in Buckinghamshire. The factory cares for the environment naturally – the energy efficient factory has a biomass boiler fuelled by the wood waste. Sustainable timber is used to make the furniture and environmentally friendly water based finishes are used.


The full range of furniture is crafted from ash, elm and oak and available in a wide range of timber finishes. The Ercol Originals range includes the classic chairmakers chair and rocker, the stunning Butterfly chair and the beautiful set of Nesting Tables. Available in seven natural timber finishes, Ercol Originals are now also finished in five bold colours for a modern, contemporary feel, bringing the classic collection up to date. These include classic Black or White or the more colourful Mandarin, Emerald and new Pinto Pebble.

Ercol Originals sit well with many interior spaces, whether that be a traditional country cottage or a modern city apartment - the flexibility of the furniture and the finishes available allow for this to work.
