Sofa & Chair by Adrian Pearsall (Craft Associates)

Adrian Pearsall Danish Modern Sofa

This sofa is probably an Adrian Pearsall mid-century design

A beautifully streamlined, extra-long sofa of mid-century design, this beauty is most likely an Adrian Pearsall from Craft Associates. Pearsall produced wrought iron and wood furniture for department stores from the early 50s through the late 60s when the company was sold to the Lane Company. Although there is no identifying tag with this particular sofa, it bears strong similarities to his designs pictured in the family’s catalog of his work.

This unique chair is a Swedish DUX mid-century design

This chair was acquired along with the sofa, and covered in the same upholstery. The two items may have been a custom order, or perhaps purchased from Macy’s, which carried the Craft Associates furniture in the 50s and 60s.

About the Author

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →
