Ercol furniture was founded in England by Lucian R Ercolani in 1920s. Lucian immigrated to London and settled in Shoreditch at the end of 19th century working as a messenger boy and playing in the Salvation Army Brass Band. He then attended the Furniture Design course in Shoreditch Technical Institute and was selected by an established furniture designer, Parker-Knoll, to join their production in High Wycombe which was the place for some of the most established furniture craftsmen in Europe.

In the 1920s Ercol furniture manufacture was born. It's ergonomic forms, light and natural designs embrace organic forms and celebrate comfort in minimalistic ways. Ercol manufacture is still in existence carrying on the legacy of Lucian's designs. However something is to be said about the original designs being more appealing to the eye and very robust compared to the modern ones.

The original creations crafted during Luciano's time are becoming increasingly difficult to find and this sofa is in excellent condition and comes with original cushions. The frame's design reflects on the well-known Ercol Loveseat piece featuring bottom leather supports and comfortable neat forms in a light and thought through fashion. The original cushions embrace the organic forms in a natural and artistic sense.

With its amazing lower back support, weighted incline and unbelievably light frame (the whole frame can literally be singlehandedly picked up and moved around the house) this Ercol sofa is a timeless piece of design history.
