Restored Adrian Pearsall 950-C Armed Side Chair

About

Handsome Adrian Pearsall 950-C armed side chair that has been completely restored. It is in fabulous condition and ready to use with new geometric upholstery in gray and taupe and black. The frame has been restored not refinished. So, still may have a couple nicks or dings. Please see photos. Circa 1960s. We are so in love with this restored chair here at the shop. Going to be hard to say good-bye to this one! Designed by the renowned Adrian Pearsall at the height of his career circa 1960s for his company Craft Associates. The chair is comprised of a slender walnut frame with four round tapered legs which taper in both directions. The flat boomerang shaped arms are one continuous piece which curves around creating the support for the small slender oval lumbar back cushion. The seat is slender as well and perches atop the flat crossbars which hold the legs together. Simple and exquisite. We have chosen a fabric that although new resembles a vintage look that Pearsall may have chosen himself. It is in tones of gray, taupe, and black which plays off the warm walnut of the frame beautifully. Pearsall has become one of the most sought after Mid-Century Modern furniture designers. His pieces with their Atomic Age look are very indicative of that flamboyant time with its futuristic vision and sultry and sexy interiors. Pearsall graduated in 1950 from the University of Illinois with an Architectural Engineering degree and in 1952 founded Craft Associates to manufacture his own designs, which trumpeted in the Atomic Age and have now become Mid-Century Modern design icons. This is the perfect Mid-Century Modern chair for a little extra seating. Plus, it will be a showstopper wherever you place it. Make it yours!

About Adrian Pearsall (Designer)

Adrian Pearsall designed some of the most exuberant and expressive American furniture of the 1950s and ’60s. For verve and vivacity of form, he surpasses even Vladimir Kagan — whose work is the emblem of swinging, sexy mid-20th century modernism. Pearsall gave his imagination free rein, and his flamboyant, eye-catching styles are icons of what has become known as “Atomic Age” design.

     Pearsall studied architectural engineering at the University of Illinois before opening his Pennsylvania furniture company, Craft Associates, in 1952, and that training shows in many designs. A Pearsall trademark, for example, is a lounge chair with an exceptionally tall, trapezoidal back, which give the pieces a skyscraper-like silhouette. Pearsall also had a talent for so-called “gondola” sofas — long, low-slung pieces with upswept ends. Many of Pearsall’s sofas and chairs are supported not by legs, but on gently arced walnut skids.

     Pearsall also had a gift for tables, in particular glass-topped side and coffee tables with frames that have the look of an Alexander Calder stabile. As you will see from the offerings on these pages, Adrian Pearsall had flair, and his work adds an attention-getting, sculptural exclamation point to any décor.
