100 years of ercol
Lucian R Ercolani founded ercol in 1920 in the heartland of English furniture making. He was intent on designing and producing beautiful and honest furniture, both design and people were the cornerstones of his company from the very beginning. This remains true of the family owned, private company that continues his beliefs in the 21st Century.
Our designs constantly evolve to reflect how we live today. Along with our talented in-house design team we also have collaborations with external UK and international designers to create unique pieces which are made with integrity and fit for purpose.
We are proud that this year, 2020, is the 100th anniversary of ercol furniture and along with brand stamping our centenary logo on a selection of Originals we will also be introducing a couple of new pieces of furniture to celebrate this significant occasion. To commemorate this very special year the first piece of furniture is the reissue of our 467 Windsor cabinet.
The 467 cabinet was first launched in 1962 as part of our Windsor range, designed by Lucian Ercolani, the collection defined the post-war era for ercol, setting the brand apart in the domestic furniture market. It’s also the perfect example of how we’ve always looked forward creating new and original designs, this piece in particular has transcended style and stood the test of time and can sit with our classic Windsor collection as well as our more contemporary furniture in a modern home.
This Anniversary Cabinet, along with a selection of pieces from our Originals Collection will be brand stamped in 2020 with our centenary logo to mark 100 years of furniture making for ercol furniture. The logo incorporates the ercol lion which was on our branding from the 1920’s.
