From Ercol’s Originals collection, a midcentury range designed by founder Lucian Ercolani, comes this beautifully made and supremely functional chair. Handcrafted to this day, All-Purpose Chair is made using the highest quality solid elm and beech hardwoods in the company’s British workshops. The turned wood backrest references Windsor furniture while the seat features subtle indentation along the top with visible hammer-shaft joints joined to turned legs.

Marking the 100-year anniversary of Ercol in 2020, the company reorganized under the moniker of its founder Lucian Ercolani as a premium brand that embodies the classic collection he pioneered as well as 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.
