Mid Century Modern Adrian Pearsall S/6 Rosewood & Linen Dining Chairs

About

Adrian Pearsall graduated from university with a degree in architectural engineering. He left the architectural field after two years and founded “Craft Associates,” which became one of the country’s most prominent furniture design companies, in the Mid-Century “Atomic Age.” With the help of his wife Dorie, he began building furniture in the basement of their Kingston home and sold pieces from the back of their truck to prominent New York and Philadelphia department stores. Known for his daring designs which brought high style to the masses, he is credited with the creation of long and low gondola sofas, free-form walnut and glass tables, and the popularization of the venerable bean bag chair. Offered are a set of six dining chairs in new gray linen upholstery with a perfect price to allow for the purchase of fabric more fitting to the buyer's taste.

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.
