Mid Century Ercol rocking chair in light elm. This rocking chair was designed in the 1960s by the furniture designer Lucian Ercolani for the manufacturer Ercol.
The shape and functionality make it an iconic design that continues to influence design and manufacture to this day.
This Ercol rocking chair is an old example of how elm was used. Nowadays, the new editions are heavier and made in Oak, Ash or Beech.
Ercol was established 101 years ago in 1920 by Italian designer Lucian R Ercolani in High Wycombe, the centre of English furniture making.
Although he intended to design and produce relevant and honest furniture, design and people were the cornerstones of his company from the very beginning. This remains true of the company today as it remains family-owned with Lucian’s grandson and great-grandson both in the business to continue his beliefs today. Design has always been at the heart of Ercol and has influenced a whole generation of designers worldwide.
