A pair of fabulous handmade sculptural easy chairs by Lucian Ercolani for Ercol UK 1957. Extremely rare in New Zealand this early blue label edition is one of only a handful of original Ercol designs by the company's founder to have been recently reissued in small runs.

A timeless classic appealing to those who appreciate distinctive, well-crafted furniture, the chairs offered here are the vintage originals (not reissues) with wonderful patina.

Ercolani is one of the foremost figures in the postwar revival of British cabinetry. His consummate craft resonates with my belief that furniture should not be designed, but made.

These stunning chairs feature broad comfortable seats supported by Pirelli webbing, traditionally fastened within a frame of solid beech, with legs which show the craftsman's hand, wedged through to create a long lasting joint. The deeply angled back with it's crescent backrest and multiple spindles is a striking counterpoint to the outrageously splayed legs and softly shaped armrests.

These chairs have been totally restored, disassembled, glued and clamped were needed, fine sanded and finished in multiple coats of Danish Oil, leaving a satin, natural surface that is very durable and easy to maintain whilst beautifully tactile and silky smooth.

Professionally re-upholstered in two textured soft Microfibre fabrics by Warwick fabrics, one with a minute herringbone pattern, over foam and tetron. Zipped and reversible and gentle machine washable.

New Pirelli webbing throughout fastened to the frame the original way, stretched then self fastening dowels inserted to hold in position.

Pick up and viewing in Drury during business hours or by appointment and I'm happy to help with transport if needed.
