Designed by founder Lucian Ercolani, this rocker from the company’s iconic midcentury Ercol Originals reflects its origins in Britain’s classic Windsor chair. A roomy double-bow seat back and upward-turned armrests assure restful comfort while the elegant central slat, cleanly turned spindles and perfectly balanced rockers attest to the skillful craft of its UK-based production. Harmonious with either contemporary or traditional décor, the solid-ash chair is available with a protective clear lacquer finish that allows the beauty of the woodgrain to show through as well as solid accent hues and Ercol’s signature half-color styling.

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.
