Vintage Ercol Model 459 Windsor Plank Coffee Table
An iconic piece of British midcentury design from Lucian Ercolani, this Windsor coffee table is in cracking restored condition (apart from one area of note – see our photos and condition report) and ready to add instant style and kudos to any modern interior. It has a blond elm top with the most beautiful grain and beech splayed legs, and underneath is a slatted magazine shelf for your periodicals. This Ercol coffee table is characterised by its softly tapered, elm table top that gently slopes off. There is no hard edge or angle, the design flows. Set in front of the family couch, place it by a favourite lounge chair or let it take centre stage in the middle of your living room, wherever this piece goes it’s practical and unobtrusive. A classic piece of furniture that’s instantly recognisable and will never go out of fashion.

This is an original piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in overall very good, used condition, apart from one specific and rather quirky issue to flag. It’s been sawn into at some point, probably when someone has used the table as a support stand. (Not us, we should add!) As part of our restoration of this piece, we have filled this gap to help disguise it but as it’s still visible and this damage is reflected in our price. That said, the rest of the table as been fully and beautifully restored. The original finish has been removed, it’s then been lightly sanded, oiled, waxed and polished to give a durable, hardwearing finish that retains the original colour and grain. The table is solid and sturdy with no wobbles or signs of repair. Sadly the blue Ercol sticker is no longer in place but this is a well documented piece that we have sold many times over so we’re 100% confident of this attribution. This particular model was made from 1961 onwards but we can’t give a specific date. Please browse our photos for an accurate sense of the overall superb condition and the damage we have called out.
