ercol updates 1950's originals with on-trend millennial pink

created in the 1950’s and 1960’s, the ercol classics are pieces of timeless design that never date or show their age. designed by lucian ercolani — founder of the company — the furniture is still as relevant and functional as it was more than fifty years ago. for the spring edition of maison & objet, ercol has updated the originals with a new tone – the half-rose.

honing in on the trend for dynamic, eye-catching color palettes, the half-rose loveseat and butterfly chair feature a striking dip-dye effect that accentuates the crafted design of these two iconic pieces by ercol. the loveseat showcases a moulded elm seat and bent beech bows for an attractive shape reminiscent of the 1950’s signature design. on the other hand, the butterfly chair in half-rose is a contemporary nod towards the company’s mid-century design heritage, with its soft silhouette and striking sculpted back.

  • Cute, but really unfortunate ergonomics. That curved chair bottom is guaranteed to be painful to sit in for more than 30 seconds.
