artisan

A modern ercol classic, simple clean lines define the Artisan dining collection.  Subtle detailing created by chamfered legs, drawer and door edges, are crafted in solid oak with a clear matt lacquer finish that emphasises the natural beauty of the wood to its best effect.

Artisan is equally at home in your living room, with its TV cabinets, coffee table, lamp table and nest of tables; or in your home-office with its stylish desk and bookcase, enabling you to build a truly coordinated look.

Artisan

Design direction

Artisan was designed for ercol by James Ryan, designer at the Edward Barnsley Workshop, one of the only remaining workshops with direct links back to the English Arts and Crafts period.  When James first came to see us, he just brought in a beautifully shaped table leg.  From there was born Artisan, with its signature curves and chamfers, made from oak, one of the timbers favoured by the Arts and Crafts movement.  The curved drawer and door fronts provide wonderfully tactile and beautiful recessed handles and the curves even flow through to the glass on the display cabinets.

James Ryan

James Ryan is designer at the Edward Barnsley Workshop, one of the only remaining workshops with direct links back to the English Arts and Crafts period.

James underwent a five year apprenticeship in fine furniture making and produces one-off craft pieces to commission. When James first came to see us, he just brought in a beautifully shaped table leg.

From this grew the Artisan range which has quickly established itself as a firm favourite.
