This pattern was inspired by Rocaille, an 18th-century style that is often found in architecture and home decor. This style is characterized by extravagant flourishes and often details inspired by nature. Extremely detail-oriented, this style is often the image that comes to mind when we think of elegance, royalty, and formal occasions from the 18th century. The Rocaille style became popular during the early reign of Louis XV of France when Baroque and Rococo were becoming the dominant artistic styles in France and all over Europe.

Ercuis was founded in 1867 by Adrien Celeste Pillon, a priest from Ercuis in the French department of Oise, north of Paris. In 1880 Ercuis opened their first shop in Paris. Simultaneously they moved away from religious works and towards decorative and artistic flatware and hollowware, which they became renowned for. With evolving styles and trends Ercuis made a transition to more modern styles in 1969, introducing sleek designs to their expert level craftsmanship. Ercuis became an exclusive luxury French brand in 1978. Their products can be seen in multiple luxury hotels in Paris and in parts of northern and southern France including the Royal Monceau Raffles, the Shangri-La Hotel, and the Four Seasons George V. The growing luxury hotel industry on the international and local scale has secured Ercuis as a leading name in the world of luxury.
