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.

A purposeful study in simplicity, the clean form of the Butterfly Chair reflects Lucian Ercolani’s signature design ethos and heartfelt commitment to traditional craftsmanship. Gently rounded to hug the body’s natural contours, the steam-bent curves of the Butterfly Chair invites users to sit and enjoy a moment of comfort and repose.

Lucian Ercolani

The Maker / 

Ercol

Ercol was founded in England in 1920 by a young Italian, Lucian Ercolani. His simple goal was to make furniture that was well designed and made in a good working environment by craftsmen who took real pride in their jobs. Today, Ercol remains a family owned company committed to protecting and sharing its highly celebrated legacy.

The Designer / 

Lucian Ercolani

The son of an Italian picture frame maker at the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Lucian Ercolani moved with his family from Tuscany to London in the 1890s. After earning his credentials as a furniture designer, Lucian went on to launch his own company in 1920, which later became known as Ercol.
