Designed by Matthew Hilton, this armchair from British furniture makers Ercol features a curvaceous upholstered profile with deep upholstered cushions. A solid-oak frame in a choice of finishes acts as a graphic counterpoint. As with the companion Rho sofas, Hilton’s upholstery collection follows his ethos of designing furniture to be practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing.

“I am lucky enough to remember Lucian as a very benign grandfather who gave me my first bicycle and, later, taught me the pleasure of drinking Chianti,” says Edward Tadros, current chairman and grandson of Ercol’s founder. “But he was also absolutely instrumental in creating my interest and curiosity in art and design.” He’s speaking of Lucian Ercolani, the icon of British modernism, who founded the company in 1920 after having moved to London from his native Italy. 

Best known for its midcentury Originals that are still produced today, Ercol sought to offer a contemporary version of handmade British furniture. Initially, the collection was inspired by classic Windsor styles, a nod to the heritage of Chiltern Hills near the first factory. The “old man” as he is referred to in company lore had made his first piece of furniture in 1907. From that auspicious start, Ercol continues to stand for timeless contemporary design and a continuity of craft.
