Corso Tables + Benches

for Ercol

Benches are also available with a fixed upholstered pad. Manufactured in solid ash or solid walnut

Mia Tables + Cabinets

for Ercol

The collection is quiet and simple, allowing the pieces to sit comfortably in a wide range of domestic and hospitality settings. This family of new products and the reissued 333 chair were launched by Ercol in 2021. Manufactured in solid oak
