Ercol the furniture manufacturer has been one of the iconic names in British furniture for nearly 100 years. Founded in High Wycombe in 1920 by Lucian Ercolani (1888-1976) it was primarily known for it's low cost Windsor chairs in it's early years. However in 1951 designs were produced to great critical acclaim for the Festival of Britain. Exhibiting an awareness for practical furniture but with an element of style. This leapfrogged the company above many manufacturers making the utilitarian furniture synonymous with the post war period.
