MCM Furniture Designers & Makers
(A work in progress...)
The iconic British furniture brand 'Ercol' is not only notorious for its blend of quality craftsmanship but for their stylish designs also. Since 1920, this family business has produced hand-crafted furniture that has certainly stood the test of time, and has become more than just a household name. Ercol is one of the few leading British post-war furniture manufacturers still in operation today. Renowned for their innovation Ercol have been continually celebrated for their pioneering approach to furniture making and were market leaders for many of their most famous features and materials. This lovely rocking chair with larger exaggerated dimensions features the famous Windsor shaped back, and low down seat. With a solid elm seat and solid beech frames, the rocker skids have been specially designed to avoid tipping over backwards.
Ercol furniture was designed by Ercol’s founder, Lucian Ercolani, who drew for his inspiration on the time proven local design and craft in the Chiltern Hills around where he lived and built his first factory in 1920 in High Wycombe.
