Ercol Originals Love Seat

You will find vintage Ercol furniture throughout our Houses and the Ercol Originals range includes many of these Mid Century pieces, made in the same way as when they were first designed. The Love Seat was designed by Lucian Ercolani in 1943 when he was tasked by the Board of Trade to develop a production-friendly version of the classic Windsor chair. It is still made by hand in England from sustainably sourced elm and beech.

Ercol Love Seat


These days steam bending is largely an artisan technique – Ercol is one of a very few companies ones doing it on a larger scale. Pieces of wood are steamed in a kiln that works just like a kettle, then bent into shape in one of three methods, by hand using a strap, machine bent using a forma or with a radio frequency machine, before being dried overnight in a kiln.


Ercol Love Seat Method


Ercol furniture is made from high quality hard woods such as ash, elm, beech, oak and walnut which are sustainably sourced from around the world. Because it’s a natural material, every piece of wood will react to the steam bending process differently, which is why it is such a skilled craft.
