ercol studio couch collaboration with Bluebellgray
By ercol on 26 June 2017
This Summer we have joined forces with Scottish textile designer, Bluebellgray by launching a special edition Studio Couch. Our elm and beech frame with its steam bent arms have been finished in one of our more contemporary finishes; Oceanic. This complements the fresh & vibrant ‘Treslaig’ fabric beautifully.
The versatile Studio Couch is one of our Original pieces which was first introduced in the 1950’s designed by ercol’s founder, Lucian Ercolani and is now part of our ercol Originals collection. The design came from a desire to create a striking sofa that was also comfortable and functional for use as either a large sofa or an occasional single bed for guests to sleep on.
Bluebellgray’s Treslaig design is a large-scale, directional abstract pattern which features a bold colour palette of hand painted-watercolours of bright pinks and blues with dynamic yellow accents. The studio couch has become an iconic piece of furniture and the design has stood the test of time, it is been reinvigorated by Bluebellgray’s contemporary design.
"I grew up in a house full of ercol furniture and the love of the design and brand has stayed with me ever since. Working with a company with quality and design integrity running through everything they do, made it a dream collaboration."
Fiona Douglas, Creative Director and Founder Bluebellgray
