From the timeless Ercol Originals range, this high-back dining chair by founder Lucian Ercolani was inspired by the local craft tradition in the Chiltern Hills where he lived and built his first factory. Quaker complements both traditional and contemporary decor with its spindle back and comfortable oval seat based on the vaunted Windsor original.
The chair bow is steam-bent from a single straight ash rail and then sanded and shaped to give its elegant profile. Traditional wedge joints—where the legs come right through the seat and then are hand-sanded flush with the surface—make for a signature design detail as well as a very strong joint, with further strength provided by the H-underframe.

- Seat height: 17.75" (45cm)

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.
