Mid-Century Sofa | Designer: Adrian Pearsall
Adrian Pearsall (1925 – 2011) was an architectural engineer and furniture designer who created some of the most influential styles of the 1950s and 60s.
After training as an architect, he established the company Craft Associates in 1952 and produced a highly popular line of affordable designer furniture in the American mid-century ‘Atomic’ style.
The company found huge success due to Pearsall’s unique but affordable designs, and was eventually sold to the Lane Company in 1969. He continued to design for the company until it ceased production in the 1970s, and later founded the new company Comfort Designs with John Graham.
Pearsall spent the later years of his life restoring and racing old yachts, whilst offering his time and services to numerous charitable causes. In 2008 he was nominated for induction into the Furniture Hall of Fame.
