Ercol’s legacy of wood craftsmanship informs the functional appeal of this 3-legged oak stool. Repeating the circular motif of companion pieces from the Svelto collection, the seat has a nearly imperceptible concave surface for comfort, with the under-frame joining it in a graceful detail. A matte finish both protects and shows off the wood’s natural beauty. And, when not in use, the stools form a handsome geometric stack, each rotated slightly from the last.

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.
