Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and stylish. Bought by my 90 year old mother-in-law as they were light and matched a TV unit she had already purchased! 16 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Update This is an update on the review I did in July 2011 The leg on one of the chairs has now broken off.These chairs really are not worth the money. 06 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great chair An extremely stylish chair that is comfortable too. Beautifully made as well - sturdy and yet looks lightweight. 10 February 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beautiful - but short lived! Lovely looking chairs, but one of the four of mine has snapped on the underside of the crossed area between the 4 legs. I've had them for just over a year, but they were in a dining room and not used very often. 25 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor craftmanship I should have taken notice of other reviews. These chairs are well designed but poorly put together. two of mine have broken legs. 12 September 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great retro design but surprisingly disappointing craftmanship Love these chairs and bought them to match the dining table. However whilst aesthetically they look great, the craftmanship is not that which you might expect, especially for the price of the chair. There is a lot of excess glue where the legs are attached and I have had to get a replacement for one, as one of the legs snapped. I would recommend these chairs but be aware that you are paying a premium for the Ercol name as it is very much en vogue again, and they do not necessarily live up to the standard you would expect from either Ercol or John Lewis. 23 April 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic design! One of the classic 50s design which compliment our Chiltern table. Very understated, comfortable, solid and easy to move around. Very pleased with my purchase. 30 November 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing On two of the three chairs I ordered the spokes have come out of the seat (one on delivery and the other within a few months) and have had to be replaced. 22 July 2011
