Guided by a profound appreciation of wood in its most natural form, L.Ercolani is a global design company with a legacy of craftsmanship dating back to 1920.

Founded by Italian-born furniture maker, Lucian Ercolani, the company rose to prominence in post-war Britain, marking a seminal chapter in mid-century design history. Ercolani established his business in the heart of High Wycombe, a traditional furniture-making hub located in the Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire. It was there that the young designer first successfully industrialised the production of the Windsor chair, displaying a level of mechanical precision and ingenuity that was unheard of for its time. This innovative method of mass production, coupled with the innate purity and clean, architectural integrity of Ercolani’s designs, helped propel the company to nationwide success in the late 1940s.
