For wonderful craftsmanship and striking design, it’s hard to match the beautiful wood furniture of British brand Ercol. Since the 1950s, Ercol has created timeless pieces that adhere to its ethos of design for beauty and design for use. Much of what Ercol creates today is based on its classic designs of the 1950s and 1960s and offers mid-century flair for contemporary homes. But plenty of collections – like the Monza dining range – showcase a more modern look and include elements of popular industrial style.
Utility is an integral part of Ercol furniture. While pieces are undoubtedly beautiful, practicality and functionality is also a key consideration. Look out for ergonomic shelf arrangements, roomy alcoves and soft-closing doors and drawers. Ranges often include taller as well as wider storage pieces, as furniture with a smaller footprint tends to fit more easily into compact spaces. Dining tables extend, chairs stack, and shelves are adjustable.
The beauty of Ercol furniture is often the wood itself. Take the look to the next level by highlighting every gorgeous knot and grain with subtle statement lighting, and balance smooth polished wood surfaces with softly textured rugs and cushions.
