An interesting account of the Ercol company including copious photographs of the various pieces. Majors on the lighter furniture rather than the dark (old colonial etc) items. Includes listings but far from comprehensive, and does tend to skit around a bit. It is therefore history and not a catalogue. Soft back and well produced if you are interested in historical background of english furniture or companies this is well worth a read.

Long awaited tome on a very British iconic furniture manufacturer. What was once every day and graced many a home has now become ' mid 20th century' collectable . Rediscovered or now just better appreciated in the flat pack world that dominates most domestic furniture these days. A wonderful book about design, skilled workers , appreciative owners and real wood. And , still around having adapted to the 21st Century.

It was such a treat to open the pages of this book. As a woodworker myself, Ercol has long held a position of high respect from me, for the quality of it's products and ideals. To discover what made the company what it is today was well worth the money. Long live this great British firm

An over-size softback which has been beautifully designed, and is a pleasure to scan.
As the owner of quite a few Ercol pieces, several of their historical catalogues, and Lucian Ercolani's biography, I feel that this is a worthwhile addition to my library.
Only four stars though as the book lacks an index - a pity - and has a glaring misuse of the word"complimentary" (in text describing picture on page 137) when "complementary" was meant.
