Ercol is the book that post-war design enthusiasts have been waiting for. It tells the fascinating story of Ercol, one of Britain's best-loved and most successful furniture companies. Founded in 1920 at High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire by Italian-born Lucian Ercolani (1888-1976), who came to Britain at the age of 10, Ercol is still going strong today and the company is still family-owned and run.
The book focuses on the Windsor Range, his supreme creation, a coordinated collection of domestic furniture inspired by the traditional English Windsor chair. Initially developed towards the end of the Second World War as part of the government's Utility scheme, Ercol's Windsor Contemporary Furniture Family was launched at the Festival of Britain in 1951.
