Ernest Race Heritage Collection


Comfort and Form Combined

Ernest Race continued to investigate new materials with the Heron chair. The chair has loose cushions and fuses exceptional comfort with dynamic sculptural form.

The design incorporates technically challenging upholstery techniques, still in use today. The iconic look is finished with the addition of the Ottoman footstool.

Available in a range of fabrics, perfect for your home or venue. Steel rod frame and turned steel legs.

Ernest Race continued to investigate new manufacturing processes with the Flamingo and Heron chairs.
