Fabric Sofas & Dining Room Furniture by Ercol
At Alan Ward Furniture we stock an excellent range of fabric sofas, chairs, recliners and dining room furniture by Ercol, at great prices. In 1920 a young designer called Lucian Ercolani started his own business in High Wycombe, the chair making capital of England. Here he perfected the technique of steam-bending wood in large quantities to form the famous Windsor Bow, and discovered how to tame elm: a beautifully grained hardwood other furniture makers considered impossible to work with.
All Ercol furniture is a high quality product, designed to provide years of service and comfort before needing replacing. Upholstery can also be recovered, when the existing covers have worn out, which minimises waste. The solid wood furniture maintains its looks, even after the knocks and bangs of daily life, and can often be repaired in the event of more significant damage.
Ercol source timber solely from the forests of North America and Europe - using only elm, beech, ash, oak and walnut. The vast majority of this furniture is manufactured in the UK, so the transport miles are minimised.
Ercol furniture comes in a variety of colour finishes. These are all created using water based stains, rather than the more common use of solvents which can contribute to greenhouse warming and act as pollutants. All of our sofas, chairs, dining tables, dining chairs, sideboards, and occasional tables would blend in with Alan Ward’s range of home accessories seamlessly, irrespective of whether your home is of a traditional or contemporary décor.
