Originals | Chairmakers Chair

Armchairs from L.Ercolani, Designed by Lucian R. Ercolani

Product description

Since the beginning of time, designers and craftsmen have experienced a profound, oftentimes intuitive connection to wood as a building material. Lucian Ercolani echoed this affinity in 1956 with the construction of the CHAIRMAKERS CHAIR, a stirring ode to the historic profession of chairmaking, suffused with thoughtful, crafted details and raw materiality.

A paradigmatic example of classic Windsor craftsmanship, the CHAIRMAKERS CHAIR features a traditional spindle backrest with eight, finely-tuned spindles, curved to accommodate the body’s natural contours and provide a supportive, comfortable seat.

Manufactured in solid ash, the CHAIRMAKERS CHAIR is offered in nine bespoke finishes

60cm (w) x 63cm (d) x 111cm (h)
23.5 (w) x 24.75” (d) x 43.75” (h)
Seat height: 42cm/16.5”


L.ERCOLANI, known as ercol Originals, are pieces of timeless and classic design that never date or show their age. It is furniture that is as relevant and as functional now as it was when it was created in the 1950s and 1960s. This furniture was designed by ercol’s founder, Lucian Ercolani, who drew for his inspiration on the time proven local design and craft in the Chiltern Hills around where he lived and built his first factory in 1920 in High Wycombe.

Some of these pieces have never been out of production since their introduction nearly 60 years ago. Other favourite pieces we have brought back into production - in 2002, ercol began a successful collaboration with the fashion designer Margaret Howell and reissued a selection of archetypal ercol pieces from our back catalogue, based on the classic Windsor chair. Starting with the Butterfly and Stacking Chair, this selection has grown into the L.ERCOLANI collection of today. These pieces are as appropriate to today's living as they were when they were originally issued.
