First launched in 1956, the Stacking Chair embraces the mid-century modern ideals of function and form with its humble, linear construction. The chair’s intentional, detail-oriented architecture reflects L.Ercolani’s long-standing commitment to utility — providing a simple yet gracious seat that effortlessly lends itself to any number of occasions and settings.
Purpose-built for convenience, the outward-facing legs of the Stacking Chair allow the chairs to be stacked vertically when not in use. This, coupled with the chair’s ergonomic design, make the chair a versatile offering that complements urban workspaces, intimate dining environments and private residences alike.
Available in a range of stains and coloured finishes

Additionally, the Stacking Chair features traditional woodworking elements, including the iconic Windsor wedge and tenon joint — a trademark detail found in many of Lucian Ercolani’s early works. In this classic technique, 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 an incredibly durable, reinforced base, built to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.
The Maker /
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 /
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.
