Made of solid ash, this exceptionally sturdy barstool was originally intended for placement in contract settings such as cafes, bars and hotels. Lara’s clean silhouette owes to maker Ercol’s masterful woodcraft combined with a modern slant that fits in anywhere. Sturdily constructed and finished in a tough clear lacquer, it’s available in either a natural woodgrain finish or graphic minimalist black.

“I am lucky enough to remember Lucian as a very benign grandfather who gave me my first bicycle and, later, taught me the pleasure of drinking Chianti,” says Edward Tadros, current chairman and grandson of Ercol’s founder. “But he was also absolutely instrumental in creating my interest and curiosity in art and design.” He’s speaking of Lucian Ercolani, the icon of British modernism, who founded the company in 1920 after having moved to London from his native Italy. 

Best known for its midcentury Originals that are still produced today, Ercol sought to offer a contemporary version of handmade British furniture. Initially, the collection was inspired by classic Windsor styles, a nod to the heritage of Chiltern Hills near the first factory. The “old man” as he is referred to in company lore had made his first piece of furniture in 1907. From that auspicious start, Ercol continues to stand for timeless contemporary design and a continuity of craft.
