Mid Century Ercol 477 Chair ( A Pair Available)


Highly prized and a vintage lover’s dream, capturing the key elements of the MCM look, this style of chair continues to be in high demand by aficionados, as demonstrated across social media. Mid Century furniture looks so at home in any property and the dark stain on this chair gives it a real edge. Don’t dismiss the dark, bold, colouring - this is a prime way to bring depth and warmth to any light, airy, contemporary living space.

Ercol was founded in 1920 by a young Italian immigrant, Lucian Ercolani, whose simple goal was to make furniture that was well designed and made in a good working environment by craftsmen who really took pride in their jobs. Design has always been at the heart of Ercol - design for comfort, design for function, design for beauty, combining practicality with looks.

Boasting the distinctive Ercol silhouette and quality workmanship associated with the famed factory in High Wycombe, this chair has only needed minimal restoration; just cleaned and degreased before re-oiling then waxed and buffed. The double bend back with its curved and moulded foam-filled cushions gives the same comfort as the tall back 478.

There are only a few marks visible on the beech frame commensurate with the age and use of this classic, yet contemporary, chair, as shown in the photos. There is no evidence of any repairs and the chair is solid and sturdy, all joints are good. The original fabric vintage cushions are in great condition, no rips or holes, buttons all intact and fully functional zips, these have been gently steam cleaned to freshen. The webbing underneath is in good condition. The Ercol badge is still present on the back of the chair and the model No 477 is stamped on the inside of the frame.

If you would prefer new fabric on these cushions we are able to offer a reupholstery service for an additional cost, just message us!

This chair was acquired at the same time with a matching other 477 chair, both have the same fabric covering. We have included a photo of the two together as they were for many years. These two chairs have been in the same room for over 60 years and are in fabulous condition.
Happy to give a discount if both are purchased together. We also have in stock a matching footstool.
