You cannot place a new order from your country. Erard


The company

Imagining new uses

Imagining furniture on which you can place your TV, preferring a system to hang it, finding new solutions, anticipating your questions and come up with answers...

Dream of revolutionary wall mounts and produce them, think up ways to hide cables, look for locations for kids’ consoles, and invent a connection system reachable without contorting...

That’s the thinking that drives ERARD, a specialist of TV furniture and accessories, since 1961.

A major player both in consumer and commercial audiovisual sectors, ERARD’s R&D focuses on user-friendliness and so, a half-century after its creation, continues to develop, manufacture and commercialize furniture, floor stands and wall mounts, that can accept any type of high-tech device (boxes, mobile devices, TVs, peripherals,…).

An innovation capability aimed at offering the most comprehensive integration products on the market, for inside and outside applications. As ERARD is also the leading French manufacturer of mounting hardware for antennas and satellite dishes.

Global know-how, from roof to living room, and connections to peripherals now all under one brand : ERARD®

Making history

Remember the early 60s...? The arrival of cathode-tube television overturned French habits and Henri Erard was among the first to develop furniture specially designed for TVs. In 1961 he launched his first range of furniture under the ERARD brand. And what had he created? A wooden table and a drinks cabinet.

In 1973, ERARD launched the first universal metal TV floor stand along with a TV ad with a catchy slogan: "ERARD, c’est le pied !" (ERARD is THE stand!, somewhat lost in translation).

Due to technological advances ERARD gradually adapted its collections and in 1985 the company started to offer products permitting to integrate Canal+ modems and later VHS recorders... Over the years, modular glass tables, swiveling floor stands and the first TV wall mounts began to round out the range.
