Vintage Ercol dining chairs for sale at Vinterior

Ercol dining chairs are elegant enough to work well with many types of dining table, as well as those they’re matched to. Additionally, a well-chosen chair can fit in perfectly as a one-off in a different part of your home. Chalk-painted in clean pastel shades, or stripped back to the wood itself, position them in the bathroom, hallway, or bedroom as a place to sling clothes, bags and books. One of the simplest second-hand Ercol dining chairs is Model 391, a design that dates from the 1960s. Featuring four spindles to form their backs and with gently moulded seats for comfort, these chairs work well in small spaces, thanks to their very pared-back design. More well-known is the Windsor dining chair. This is a bent-wood piece that gained massive popularity through the 1950s as Ercol fine-tuned its steam-bending technique to enable large batches of elm to be bent and shaped. There are various versions of the Windsor; it’s been sold over the years as a fireside chair, a rocking chair, and more.

Why choose a vintage Ercol dining chair?

One great thing about opting for preowned, or antique items, is that nobody else will have quite the same pieces as you. It may be that your particular set of six Windsor dining chairs has been upcycled for a modern look and has paint-dipped legs or perhaps the beautiful wood has been sanded right back to really reveal its grain, and the lightest of waxes has been applied. Whatever has happened on the chairs’ journey to your home over the years, they’ll be unique to you. Shopping sustainably while sourcing your dream Ercol-style dining chairs means your home becomes more characterful and unique.
