Product Story

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 chair is available in nine statement-making finishes, including a natural finish and the new Modern Tones series by Christian Møller Andersen.

Designed Lucian Ercolani

Born 1888 in Italy, Lucian Ercolani moved to London with his family in the 1890s before studying design and furniture making. Having worked within the design teams for what would later become Parker Knoll and G-Plan, in 1920 Ercolani founded Ercol and began producing the company's characteristic blend of contemporary design and traditional British craft.
