Launched in 1956, L.Ercolani’s enduring Originals Butterfly Chair gets an update with an upholstered-seat version. The iconic everyday dining seating features traditional Windsor wedge and tenon joinery, a technique in which the chair’s legs are extended through the seat, secured with a wedge, and then sanded until they lie flush with the seat. Offered in ash timber with an ash veneer steam-bent ply seat and back, this Midcentury classic comes in a range of timber finishes and innumerable complementary upholstery selections.

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.
