Designed by Matthew Hilton, the Rho upholstery collection follow his ethos of designing furniture to be practical, functional and aesthetically beautiful. A refined combination of the graphic solid oak frame balanced with deep, soft cushions and a curvaceous upholstered back rest make this series a warm and inviting living room addition. The series includes an armchair as well as a medium and large sofa (large shown in main image).

During the early 80s, Matthew worked as an industrial designer for Capa in London before setting up the Matthew Hilton Design Studio in 1985 to work with a number of notable manufacturers and retailers.

Ercol Page Logo

In 1920, young designer Lucian Ercolani started his own business in High Wycombe, the chair making capital of England. Here he perfected the technique of steam-bending wood  to form the famous Windsor Bow and discovered how to "tame" elm; a beautifully grained hardwood other furniture makers considered impossible to work with.

Design and people were the cornerstones of his company and this remains true of the family-owned company today, which is currently headed by Lucian's grandsone, Edward Tadros. 

Ercol's passion for innovation in design and manufacturing is as strong today as it was then. Its 160,000-square-foot factory combines the latest technology with time-honored craftsmanship to create a unique range of pieces designed by Ercol's in-house team alongside design luminaries including Matthew Hilton, Sir Terence Conran and Russel Pinch.
