The versatile dining table is a reintroduction of one of the 1950s designs from Ercol founder Lucien Ercolani. Now known as the Originals collection, it’s based on elements of the traditional Windsor chair as seen in the table’s splayed, tapered beech legs. With a solid-elm tabletop and drop leaves on either side for when the table is not in use, it’s a beautiful rendition of a modern small-space classic. When fully opened, Drop Table seats 4 persons easily or even a convivial 6.

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.
