Originally handcrafted in the British countryside, the classic Windsor chair was the springboard for Lucian Ercolani's modern update Utility. First adapted for production in 1943, the chair bow is steam-bent from a single straight ash rail and joins the back spindles in the classic configuration. A comfortably shaped saddle seat meets the legs with traditionally durable wedge joinery, the inset leg hand-sanded flush with the seat, and with additional strength provided by the H-underframe.

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.
