If you find yourself short on surface space in your living room but don’t want to compromise on style, look no further than an Ercol nest of tables. A design classic, these tables come typically in sets of three, with one neatly stacked under the next, providing an excellent and flexible solution in smaller living rooms. Available in a range of finishes and crafted from British wood, they slot beautifully into the corner of any sitting room, providing great support when visitors arrive, when they can quickly be distributed around to hold cups of tea and trays of biscuits. Although they make excellent occasional tables, they can just as easily work as everyday coffee tables because with their simplicity and strength, there are many reasons why you should consider buying an Ercol set of tables rather than a mass-market option from your local high street.

Why choose an Ercol nest of tables?

There are a couple of signature styles available to you when it comes to buying an Ercol table nest. The first of these is the classic, pebble shaped nest of tables from the mid 20th century designed by Ercol founder Lucian Ercolani himself. It features a smooth, rounded tabletop with the gently splayed wooden legs that are synonymous with mid-century design. Another popular style you may wish to look out for is the Chantry style, which features a rectangular tabletop with more ornate carvings on the legs – again, instantly recognisable as an Ercol design.

Whichever style you opt for, you know that every item of vintage Ercol furniture here at Vinterior carries the same assurance of exceptional quality and British craftsmanship that over the years has turned the brand into a household name.

Italian furniture designer Ercolani set up the Ercol brand in Britain in the early 20th century and his dedication to creating brilliant, unfussy interior classics quickly turned him into a revered designer. He took inspiration from centuries of the traditional British craft of furniture making and this ethos underpins every piece of Ercol furniture. The British Board of Trade commissioned Ercolani to design production-friendly items of furniture after the Second World War, cementing his position as one of the most important designers of the era. Suffice to say, when you buy an Ercol nest of tables, you also buy into the history of a brand that has shaped British furniture design for the best part of a century.

These are items that, no matter what happens, do not date, and look equally as at home in slick, modern settings or more rustic, traditional interiors. There’s a reason why the Ercol nest of tables has never gone out of style – they are incredibly hardworking items of furniture and can be used in virtually any room in the house, together or separately, as bedside tables, coffee tables or plant stands.

Vintage Nests of Tables by Ercol

Table nests can seamlessly blend into the background or act as an accent piece when you decorate them with lamps, vases and picture frames to draw attention to their sleek lines and impeccable shape. Stack them with fashion magazines or rest a glass of wine on them while you watch TV in the evening – they are useful and beautiful in equal measure.

When buying vintage Ercol tables at Vinterior, you buy furniture that you will want to cherish for the long term. Looked after properly, these items can last for many generations and so your stylish nest may even become a family heirloom over time.
