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. Part of the ercol Originals range, this compact occasional Easy chair comprises a traditional steam-bent frame, with turned spindles and a distinctive arch back. The foam seat and back cushions provide a comfortable and supportive sit. Rubberised webbing at the base of the armchair provides extra support. Wooden legs taper down from the frame in keeping with the Windsor style of this chair. This furniture can be selected in a range of colours and finishes and bespoke colouration is available on project orders over a certain quantity.
