Ercol’s timeless Evergreen, a midcentury classic from founder Lucian Ercolani, has been in constant production ever since its introduction. Handmade in the firm’s Chiltern workshops, the easy chair is fashioned using the traditional technique of steam-bending wood, a signature of Ercol’s woodcraft finesse. Seat cushions lend additional comfort to the ergonomic support for the high back and lumbar area, with molded arm cushions for further ease.

Marking the 100-year anniversary of Ercol in 2020, the company reorganized under the moniker of its founder Lucian Ercolani as a premium brand that embodies the classic collection he pioneered as well as new works from an international slate of designers like Norm Architects, Jonas Wagell, and Lars Beller Fjetland. Under Edward Tadros, current chairman and grandson of “the old man” as Lucien is fondly remembered, the legacy of well-built furniture continues at its headquarters in the English countryside village of Princes Risborough
Best known for the iconic midcentury Originals that are still produced today, Ercolani developed a contemporary version of handmade British furniture initially inspired by classic Windsor styles. After surviving the Great Depression, two world wars, several recessions, and global competition, the company moves robustly into a new century buttressed by its uncompromising values and unstinting craftsmanship.
