Margaret Howell reissues classic 1950s Ernest Race Heron Chair


Apologies for the size of image, this is the best we can do right now of the Ernest Race Heron Chair, reissued with a modern twist by Margaret Howell.

The seat itself is a post-war British classic from 1955, made at a time when wood was in short supply, hence, the steel frame. The new version is faithful to the original (which hasn’t been in production since 1961), with Margaret Howell adding some modern-day touches to the upholstery and finish, but keeping that low-slung shape, which is perfect for relaxing after a hard day at work.

The chair and matching stool should be available in the coming weeks, but as yet, no price has been confirmed. We’ll keep you posted.
