Ercol made furniture to last using elm ash or oak and using mechanical joints which require no glue and therefore last a lifetime. The nest of tables is a versatile addition to a living room and each of these tables will bear the weight of a heavy adult without a problem if required. They look beautiful from all angles and the grain of the wood is plain to see. The Midrange is elm as is the highly figured light colour the light set is make from oak. We have three sets one light one medium and one mid range colour, We hope the images do them justice but feel free to phone to ask to see them in the shop.
