Ercol Windsor armchairs, a pair, newly upholstered, 1950`s ca, English.
Both vintage armchairs have been beautifully restored; newly reupholstered and the wooden arms & legs re-polished.
This pair of 1950`s armchairs attributed to Lucian Ercolani for Ercol are bang up-to-date with new upholstery in a clever combination of velvet & cotton fabric with an oversized paisley print. These fabrics highlight the form and lovely spoked wooden arms. The use of light elm wood keeps the design ‘honest’ alongside the elegant indigo blue velvet.
These chairs are ideal for a range of design schemes such as Art Deco, Modernist, Country or Contemporary. The size is well suited for an urban home, bedroom or conservatory.
At the focal point is the spoked arms of elm wood, part of which is upholstered. This fabric is repeated on the front side of the back-rest while the reverse side is in indigo blue to match the seat. The tapered & splayed legs are also of elm wood keeping the design `light`.
The wooden frames have been completely restored with added satin finish. Both frames are in excellent condition; the sprung bases and backs are sound and make these chairs very comfortable. The chairs have been fully re-upholstered in new pure cotton and velvet fabrics.
The chairs are for sale as a pair and this price is for the pair.
Seat height is: 47 cm.
Seat depth is: 47 cm.
For safe transport these armchairs would be packed free of charge. Each would be wrapped in two layers of bubble wrap with a final layer of stretch wrap. They could be boxed individually if needed.
Ercol Furniture History - Lucian Ercolani:
Ercol Furniture was established by Lucian Ercolani (1888–1976) in High Wycombe, England in 1920.
In 1944, Ercol was contracted by the government to produce 100,000 Windsor chairs, a traditionally local chair with bentwood frame and an arched back supporting delicate spindles. Ercol had perfected the steam-bending of wood in large quantities and for this contract the company selected English elm, a wood previously thought impossible to bend because it distorted. Ercol’s innovation meant the chair could be assembled from fourteen pre-formed components.
In 1946, Ercol exhibited its bentwood furniture at the `Britain Can Make It` Exhibition, held at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The first production-line of Ercol’s ‘Windsor’ chairs went on sale the following year. Ercol`s furniture found a ready market in Post-War Britain, which demanded smaller pieces with simpler lines than their chunky Pre-War counterparts. Ercol furniture was exhibited at the 1951 `Festival of Britain`, which showcased the latest Modernist style and fashion in furniture design & manufacture.
Ercol Company is very much in business today; their vintage pieces are very fashionable and sought after. At the 2009 London Design Festiva Ercol partnered with Wallpaper magazine to produced a modern interpretation of the Chair Arch. This design has been given pride of place in the Central Courtyard of the Victoria & Albert Museum Museum.
