How you can refresh your living room this year

Ercol brings living rooms up to date for 2019 with a throwback to the fabulous fifties. The most famous name in furniture is still setting the trends.

Natural wood is good for the environment

We are leaving the eclectic cluttered look in 2018, and this year we’re all about a chic style that we call ‘biophilia’. This furniture emphasises the relationship between nature and environmental sustainability. Wood is very on-trend this year and our Ercol sideboards and lamp tables in natural and organic pale oak, have the elegance of the 1930s, with the modern requirement for today’s multipurpose lifestyle.

Modern meets vintage

The nostalgic shape of our pebble tables with tapered and rounded legs reflect this year’s fashion for curves and away from the mid-century preference for straight lines and rigid shapes. Even the chairs and sofas have rounded corners that look perfectly balanced on rounded oak legs. Soft lines and organic shapes are the embodiment of vintage and new that Ercol achieves with understated colours.

Warm colours are on-trend

Magnolia is replaced with shades of bronze, taupe, blushed rose and antique teal, that perfectly offset the Ercol classic pale oak furniture, making a small living room look bigger with its simple lines. Choose a two-door sideboard or a three door, depending on your room size, to easily store your china and cutlery, giving you more space in the kitchen cupboards.

Textures add dimension

Textures are replacing patterns this year, and the Ercol Favara range of beautifully upholstered chairs, sofas and footstools creates a textured juxtaposition between the tweed-style weave of the fabric, the smooth classic oak legs and the deep tones of an accent cushion. Personality is everything and the new Ercol range has it in bucket-loads!

Create some drama

With deep toned walls and classic furniture, you can create vibrancy and drama with a bold rug and lamps and vases. Continue adding sustainable materials by choosing your accessories in ceramic and clay materials which will provide calm and create a space where the family can relax.

Multi-Purpose Living

Today’s living room needs to be a place where every member of the family can exist in harmony, so personalisation is vital. A large sofa is a must if you have a wall-mounted TV, or someone will be sitting sideways and missing the action. A Teramo coffee table with shelving or drawers can tidy away magazines and iPads, leaving space to work on top. Spread the nest of tables out for evenings spent with a glass of Prosecco, and utilise the modern ‘high-board’ sideboard if floorspace is tight, for double the cupboard space.

Ercol furniture will take you and your family elegantly into the next decade with eco-friendly materials and natural style!
