Introducing Lucian Ercolani..

Ercol Dining Set1950s Ercol Dining Table & Chairs
This iconic dining set was designed by Lucian Ercolani in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. Dating from the 50s the table is constructed from solid elm planks with rounded edges. The 4 ‘Quaker’ chairs are made from elm & beech and are supported by 6 spindles. A great example of master craftsmanship which has been built to last and is very easy on the eye. After roping my dad into ferrying these back home – I had quite a job sanding the table surface to rid it of some garish marks. I had to sand it twice after stupidly using a dirty paint brush to apply the varnish but the sores on my hands were quickly forgotten when admiring the finished product – elegant is an understatement.
