A celebrated classic, the Utility High Back Chair encapsulates the pared-back simplicity of Lucian Ercolani’s formative work, inspired by the purity of Windsor-style furniture. Equally well-received today as it was in 1945, the welcoming form of the Utility High Back Chair has the power to elevate the atmosphere and occasion of everyday dining rituals.

Meticulously crafted and honed to minimalistic perfection, the Utility High Back Chair boasts a classic Windsor backrest with six, finely-carved spindles. Carved into a tall arc, a steam-bent ash bow encases the spindle structure, uniting the chair’s elements in a grand, sweeping curve.

Additional Info

Hammer-shaft joints and gently tapered, outturned legs provide a supple yet dependable profile — allowing the Utility High Back Chair's lithe form to shine through its honest build. Lastly, traditional wedge and tenon joinery combined with a supportive H-frame inserted underneath the Utility High Back Chair's saddle seat enhance the overall strength and durability of the chair’s construction.

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.
