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. So just sit back and relax!
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.
This vintage armchair (we think is Model No 352 ) with round stick backs is made of dark solid elm. 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 with a dark coloured oil (this helps blend any chips, scratches and scuffed areas) then waxed and buffed. The arms on this chair has lost most of the original lacquer but the coloured oil and wax have helped blend and buff to a good shine and colour as well as offering future protection.
There are 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 cushions are in good condition and still plump, the fabric has at some point been replaced in a mid grey linen type fabric, these do show signs of use, some bobbling on the top cushion and the also on the base cushion at the front, the zips are all in good order and the webbing underneath is in excellent condition, again this has probably been replaced. We have steam cleaned the cushions to freshen.
We have a matching pair of these chairs, happy to discount if bought together, just message us!
