Crafted from Ash wood, the elegant Drop Leaf dining table is fitting for interior styles both classic and contemporary due to its minimalist, subtle design. Able to be fixed into three different positions, the rounded tabletop creates an intimate, connected dining experience, the dropped leaves allowing for the table to adjust to different sized spaces and numbers of people. A truly adaptable piece, the L.Ercolani Originals Drop Leaf Table has a highly practical design, representing the subtle beauty and functionality of working with natural wood in design.
Lucian R Ercolani, or the "Old Man" as he is affectionately known in the company, founded Ercol in 1920. Born in Italy in 1888, Lucian's family moved to London in the 1890s. There he went to night school at the Shoreditch Technical Institute where he studied drawing, design and the theory and construction of furniture.
Between 1910 to 1920, The Old Man worked in the design teams for what would later become Parker Knoll and G-Plan, before founding Ercol in 1920.
