Norway-born designer Lars Beller Fjetland's love of wood and fine craftsmanship finds its focus in the side table from his IO collection. With its soft, cloud-like edges and round matte surface, the overhead view resembles its namesake, the most distinct of Jupiter's monumental moons. Along with renowned artisan maker L. Ercolani, Lars has devised a spare flanged structure that's subtly intriguing and luxurious in its presence.

With its 100-year anniversary, the heritage British furniture company founded by Lucian Ercolani is rebranded as as the premium brand L. Ercolani. Embodying the classic collection he pioneered, it also encompasses new works from an international slate of designers like Norm Architects, Jonas Wagell, and Lars Beller Fjetland. Under Edward Tadros, current chairman and grandson of “the old man” as Lucien is fondly remembered, the legacy of well-built furniture continues at its headquarters in the English countryside village of Princes Risborough.
Best known for the iconic midcentury Originals that are still produced today, Ercolani developed a contemporary version of handmade British furniture initially inspired by classic Windsor styles. After surviving the Great Depression, two world wars, several recessions, and global competition, the company moves robustly into a new century buttressed by its uncompromising values and unstinting craftsmanship.
