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.


The BUTTERFLY CHAIR features the traditional Windsor wedge and tenon joinery, a technique in which 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 a strong and durable base, built to withstand the demands of daily life.


Offered in ash timber with an ash veneer steam-bent ply seat and back, the BUTTERFLY CHAIR is an attractive and eye-catching accompaniment to the heartening ritual of dining with loved ones.


The chair is available in nine statement-making finishes and is now available with an upholstered seat, in a variety of harmonious textiles and colour-palettes.

Size: h82 x w51 x d46 / seat height 47 / seat depth 32 cm
