High/Low: The Two-Seater Windsor-Style Bench

September 4, 2020

I love the mid-century lines and simple Shaker-esque simplicity of the Originals Loveseat Bench, designed by Lucian Ercolani in 1956, founder of the British furniture company Ercol. Made in the UK, it’s sold today at some of our favorite stores like Design Within Reach and Lekker Home, but at a premium. Recently, I noticed a couple of lookalikes, for significantly less. Let’s investigate.

The back rail is steam bent, and the large outward shaped seat is carved for comfort.&#8\2\2\1; It comes in natural ash, black ash, and walnut (pictured); from \$\1,495.
