Few forms embody the legacy of L.Ercolani as consummately as that of the modest Butterfly Chair - the iconic everyday dining chair designed by Lucian Ercolani. Launched in 1956, the subtle curves and sculptural refinement of the Butterfly Chair helped transform the chair into a beloved mid-century classic.
The Butterfly Chair features the traditional Windsor wedge and tenon joinery, a technique in which the chair’s legs are extended through the seat and secured with a wedge. These joints are then sanded until they lie flush with the seat to create a strong and durable base, built to withstand the demands of daily life. Offered in ash timber with an ash veneer steam-bent ply seat and back, the Butterfly Chair is an attractive and eye-catching accompaniment to the heartening ritual of dining with loved ones.
The iconic yet ergonomic shape of the Butterfly Chair ensures a comfortable sit for hours.
Expert joinery work infuses strength with design expertise.
Tapered legs offer a sturdy yet elegant base.
