ORIGINALS BUTTERFLY CHAIR

The 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. Using the strength of beech and the beauty of elm he carried this definition on into a huge variety of dining, kitchen, and school chairs and then extended the idiom into the low easy chair range epitomised by the 206 armchair and the studio couch. The beauty of the colour and the grain of the elm took Lucian on to use elm for the tables and cabinets of the Originals and the following Windsor range. The voluptuous curves on this design create an intrinsically eye-catching chair. The inherent springiness in the bent plies of the seat and back and the sculpted recessed shape, as well as the moulded wing shaped back, provide a comfortable seat. The Butterfly chair seat can be selected in a choice of our painted finishes, which protects the timber as well as fitting in with your style and decor. A feature of this dining chair is the classic Windsor wedge joint, where the leg of the chair goes right through the seat; a wedge is then inserted into a cut in the leg, forming a remarkably strong joint. Sanded off flush with the seat, the joint then provides a beautiful design element. First launched in 1958 the Butterfly chair is as fresh today. With its distinctive curved bent plies, reminiscent of the profile of a butterfly’s wings, the butterfly chair is one of Ercol’s most iconic designs. The chair goes wonderfully with the 382 Plank table. To celebrate our 100th anniversary this chair, designed by Ercol’s founder, Lucian Ercolani, will feature an exclusive centenary logo during our anniversary year 2020.
