The Ercol Originals are pieces of timeless and classic design that never date or show their age. It is furniture that is as relevant and as functional now as it was when it was created in the 1950s and 1960s. This 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. Using the strength of beech and the beauty of elm he carried this definition on into a huge variety of dining, kitchen, and school chairs and then extended the idiom into the low easy chair range epitomised by the 206 armchair and the studio couch. The beauty of the colour and the grain of the elm took Lucian on to use elm for the tables and cabinets of the Originals and the following Windsor range. This classic rocking chair encompasses a double bow seat back, central slat and eight turned spindles, all features which are characteristically ercol. Upward turned armrests extending from the central bow and supported by three spindles provide added comfort. The solid ash oyster shaped seat fixes the legs into place. The rockers create a perfectly balanced smooth movement. This rocking chair is the perfect addition to any living room, of contemporary or traditional décor. The chair is available in your choice from our lacquer finishes which both protect the timber and allow the beauty of the natural grain to show through. Alternatively you can chose from our range of paint finishes to give your room a pop of colour.
