Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish and well crafted. One of my favourites. The Chiltern Bench is a great looking piece that updates the classic 1950's Ercol design for a new generation. A stylish, well crafted and comfortable alternative to dining chairs that functions equally as well as an stand alone item that would look terrific in an alcove or hallway. 02 December 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Stylish design and good service A very stylish design BUT: A manufacturing fault meant that there was insufficient glue on the transverse tie holding the two sets of legs together - therefore one set collapsed, fortunately without injury to the person sitting on it at the time. Peter Jones replaced the item without question. I think I might tie the two sets of legs together with rope to prevent a reoccurrence! 03 December 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely design Really nice, light piece of furniture - only gripe is that it is shipped with all four legs screwed to a frame, which means that when these screws are taken out you have holes in each of the legs. 21 May 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by nice seat this is a good seat,quality is ok,perhaps not quite up there with the original ercol, but good value, elegant design and nice to sit on. 29 February 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I know it to be useful and I believe it to be beautiful.. paraphrase William Morris. Well made and well packaged. Although the original Ercol were, I think Elm (pre Dutch Elm disease), this one looks good in natural Oak. A great addition to the entrance hall. 19 October 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent quality and design Ercol have once again produced a future classic with craftsmanship and design I would expect from this heritage company. Neat, stylish and perfectly proportioned. 19 June 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A classic I bought this to fill a gap in our recently renovated kitchen. I am a fan of mid-century design, owing a fair few pieces of original Ercol and Heals so this fits in well here. This is a beautiful piece and superbly made. It's surprisingly comfortable to sit on, although we use it more as a 'collection point'. The wood has character, grain that gives softening pattern. I love it. If I have a gripe it is the legs don't have pads on the bottoms, but that's a very minor fault. Well done John Lewis and Ercol, English furniture of this quality at this price is rare! It arrived in perfect condition, on time too! If you hankering after this item it will not disappoint! 10 June 2011
