Ercol had always put forth a country and classic flavour in its design. Very traditional and conservative, I would say. The first design from Ercol that caught my eye is the Modern Classic Butterfly Chair. But I am not going to talk about that chair today. Today’s lead is going to be a desk. This […]Read more "Treviso ~ Finger as Legs"
