Designed to function as a large couch and as an occasional single bed for guests, this distinctive sofa is both eye catching and wonderfully flexible. The seat and back cushions are made of foam and offer a comfortable sit. Rubberised webbing at the base of the settee provides extra support. The couch will be covered in your choice from a range of ercol fabrics, to suit the style and decor of your home.

The studio couch frame will be finished in your choice of a selection of lacquer finishes or in a choice of our painted colour finishes, which protects the timber as well as fitting in with your style and decor.

The ercol Originals are pieces of timeless and classic design that never date or show their age. It is furniture that is as relevant and as functional now as it was when it was created in the 1950s and 1960s.

This furniture was designed by ercol's founder, Lucian Ercolani, who drew for his inspiration on the time proven local design and craft in the Chiltern Hills around where he lived and built his first factory in 1920 in High Wycombe.

The chairs are simple evolutions of the classic Windsor chair. Lucian Ercolani was responding to a Board of Trade contract in 1943 when he first worked on adapting the country Windsor chair into a production friendly design. The simple definition of a Windsor chair is that the back and legs are attached to the seat. This definition gives the designer great room to select different themes and create huge variety. These dining chairs were made in the countryside by "bodgers" for many centuries before Lucian took on the idea in the middle of the 20th century.

Using the strength of beech and the beauty of elm he carried this definition on into a huge variety of dining, kitchen, and school chairs and then extended the idiom into the low easy chair range epitomised by the 206 armchair and the studio couch. Lucian was prolific in putting his mind to huge variety. The soft curves of the bows were the inspiration for the soft curves of the table tops with their softly thumb-moulded edges.

The beauty of the colour and the grain of the elm took Lucian on to use elm for the tables and cabinets of the Originals and the following Windsor range.

The Originals are achieving a position in the pantheon of classic designs of the 20th century, designs still relevant and new to those who meet them for the first time in the 21st century. They have become a much sought after British classic.

“Easy order made by phone, good contact re progression of order and delivery. Delivery made on time and staff very helpful. Would order from this company again”

Gill Evans

“The service was excellent, as I was moving home I did not have any internet until today (hence not leaving feedback sooner) so I did not get my updates but I rang up and they advised me of the delivery date which was very quick and they rang when on their way. Unfortunately they could not find us so it took several calls & then my husband drove out to meet them but they took it in good faith. Would definitely recommend cfs for service and price as I had seen the mattress more expensive in the shops and would use again”

“Delivery guys were great - had been up since 0400 (on a Bank Holiday weekend Sunday, no less) and were polite and efficient. Wish I'd told them to stop just for 5 minutes for a cuppa, but they were already onto the next job. Well done chaps.”
