Rare Adrian Pearsall 1828 C Chaise Lounge Chair Restored in Ivory Cowhide

About

This is a very rare Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates 1828-C chaise lounge. Adrian Pearsall began his career as an architect but dabbled in furniture design, quickly becoming a leader in the modernist furniture movement. The chaise was completely restored down to the wooden frame with new foam and cushioning. And we upholstered the chaise lounge in our stunning ivory-hued Brazilian cowhides. From our unparalleled collection of ivory cowhides, we found two of the biggest hides - one draped perfectly for the top and the other completely covered the bottom. Look at the zoomed in photos of the cowhide - the hair is so silky and long and soft! We love how the beautiful cowhide pairs perfectly with the fluid lines of the chaise. It's so comfortable too. This is a showpiece and is destined for an amazing room. Measure: 40" W x 60" D x 32" H.

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.
