An evolution of the classic Windsor chair form, the L.Ercolani High Back Utility Armchair embodies a more slender, taller U-shaped backrest. Effectively supporting the body, the armrests provide an added feature of cocooned comfort, creating a relaxing atmosphere when dining. Defined by smooth lines and delicate curves, the expertly crafted Ash creates a timeless dining chair that co-ordinates well with a range of interior styles.
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.
