A Loveseat full of Pride
Ercol, the iconic furniture brand, approached us to collaborate with them on a special limited edition of their classic loveseat. They are such an incredible brand, one that has been part of our homes and lives for as long as we can remember, and we love the strong family connections that still make the heart of the business.
We wanted to make this piece for Pride, as equality is so important to us, and so we took the base idea of the rainbow and gave it our own contemporary take, pastels and electric blue and neon yellow. Our inspiration was from the pride parade itself, as if the loveseat had been to the party and come back covered in the bold colours of pride itself. All of the colours blend together where they meet.
No two will be the same, but they will each feature all of the 7 colours that make up our 2LG rainbow. .
We designed the palette of 7 rainbow colours so that each piece is unique.
Colour has become a signature of our design business and this rainbow is made up of our favourite colours.
The classic loveseat is crafted in their UK factory and we visited to see them being made by hand.
...and oversee the spraying process of our design.

We hope it is a jolt of positivity for all who see it.
The first of the pieces will be auctioned off for Pride, with a second going on display at Pride in London. We are also going to be holding an instagram auction for another of the first pieces.
We are then hoping that it will be produced in a limited run later in the year. Feel free to all send Ercol a message about how much you love it. Haha.
Fingers crossed we will be spreading more love when it goes into production 😉 x
