Ercol Archives

October 18, 2016

“Design for comfort, design for function, design for beauty” has been the philosophy of Ercol since its founding in 1920. Ever since then, Ercol has been recognized and respected for their simple, timeless designs crafted and constructed by craftsmen with a passion for the creation of furniture pieces. We recently came across catalogues dating back to the 1920’s, and with an appreciation for the heritage embedded in furniture items it was inspiring to see designs from their originals collection unchanged up to this day. Tonic Design are the sole agents for Ercol in South Africa, for more information about the company please contact our showroom in Kramerville, or come past to view selected pieces on display in our showroom.
