"Ercole was founded in 1986 when Ornella Pisano had the vision to create pieces of mosaic furniture and décor which would be, in themselves, works of art. Ornella came to see she was producing objects that could bring particular meaning to homes, where function, form and beauty would combine to create lasting works of expression and warmth as well as utility.
Ercole’s product line is unique. Every collection is designed and directed by Ornella, and each piece is hand made in New York, in a studio principally staffed by women artisans. Ercole’s work has been emulated throughout the world, but we have always maintained our market leadership through artistic innovation and continually evolving the design of our collections."
