About the Designer

Lawrence Peabody

Lawrence “Larry” Peabody was an architect, interior designer, and furniture designer. While Peabody was an American born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, his distinctive designs were often influenced by his Scandinavian roots.

Peabody studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Denmark, and at the Rhode Island School of Design. His early career with Selig Mfg. Co. was prolific and helped put both himself and Selig on the map for modern furniture. He then started Lawrence Peabody & Associates in 1955, a design firm in Boston that included a vast client list (Sears, Roebuck & Co., Kohler, Regal Rugs, Boyd Lighting, Chapman Lamps, and Richardson Brothers).

In 1961, Peabody won a Citation for Merit for his Peabody Collection for Richardson/ Nemschoff. Winner of the 1962 International A.I.D. Design Award for his wood frame rattan cradle chair, he also received the Walnut Classic Award for his outstanding established collection of furniture executed in walnut. Craft Associates Furniture is honored to have acquired the rights to produce licensed Lawrence Peabody–designed furniture.
