romana

Romana is a modern dining and living-room furniture collection with soft curves and sophisticated craftsmanship that emphasises ercol’s skill in working with solid timber.  Romana is made from pale oak and finished in a clear matt lacquer to both protect the timber and show off its beauty.

Design direction

Romana’s style is modern, including cabinets and sideboards with a low contemporary outline; but with subtle detailing and soft shapes the range remains understated.  Detailing includes shaped legs, whose easy organic lines belie the complexity of manufacture. The shaped edge to the top panels echoes the softness of ercol’s vintage mid-century designs, but cut into the carcass it gives a streamlined feel to the silhouette.

A high level of craftsmanship is used in creating the organic shapes in the range.  Complex construction is further evidenced in flush, sculpted curves across joints and in the close fit of the curved tops into the recessed tops of the cabinet carcasses.

Design

Design is central to ercol – design for comfort, design for function, design for looks.  The ercol design studio is a strong in-house pool of design talent whilst we also commission both well-renowned and upcoming external designers to work with us on projects, bringing their flavours to the ercol style.  Our in-house designers are complemented by a team of draughtsmen who convert the designs into the detailed technical component drawings necessary to make the furniture, programmers for our CNC machines and the highly skilled craftsmen of our prototype team, who hand-craft the first samples of each design.
