Exacting English craftsmanship including dovetail joints and a subtle matte-wax lacquer finish are hallmarks of heritage Brit brand L. Ercolani, which manufacturers this stunning desk designed by Matthew Hilton in its facilities outside London. Matthew's design is a nod to the clean lines of Mid-Century forms, but the update is in the scale and functional details such as the cable management outlet. Available in walnut or American oak, sourced from sustainable forestry resources. In the images featured here, paired with the Butterfly Chair by L. Ercolani.

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.
