Sofas, Stressless recliners, furniture, carpets, curtains by Julian Foye, Cornwall: Truro, St Austell, Wadebridge, Hayle.
In 1920 a young designer called Lucian Ercolani started his own business in High Wycombe, the chairmaking capital of England. Here he perfected the technique of steam-bending wood in large quantities to form the famous Windsor Bow, and discovered how to 'tame' elm; a beautifully grained hardwood other furniture makers considered impossible to work with.
Design and people were the cornerstones of his company. This remains true of the family owned private company that continues his beliefs in the 21st century.
The passion for innovation in design and manufacturing is as strong today as it was then. The Ercol factory combines the very latest technology with time-honoured craftsmanship to create a range of unique pieces.
The Ercol Factory at Princes Risborough is a design icon in its own right. The 160,000 square foot factory, opened in 2002, is situated in the heart of the traditional Chiltern's furniture-making area. This stunning facility has won a number of awards for its architectural design and its environmental features. It includes a showroom which features a comprehensive selection of Ercol furniture.
Ercol craftsmanship and quality of finish is second to none. There is a choice of wood finishes for most items.
