Few forms embody the legacy of L.Ercolani as consummately as that of the Butterfly Chair. This iconic everyday dining chair designed by Lucian Ercolani was launched in 1956.
The subtle curves and sculptural refinement of the 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. Finished in ash timber with an ash veneer steam-bent ply seat and back, it is an attractive and eye-catching accompaniment to the heartening ritual of dining with loved ones. The chair is available in many finishes, including a natural finish and the new Modern Tones series by Christian Møller Andersen. This beautiful version comes with a seat pad for extra comfort available in a range of stunning fabrics, perfect for the home office or around a dining table.
