Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates, ‘platform’ curved sofa, fabric, walnut, United States, 1960s
This beautifully shaped sofa designed by Adrian Pearsall is characterized by a solid construction, featuring clear lines and a striking curved shape. The sofa rests on a wooden platform executed in walnut that creates a floating appearance, and together with the elongated curved shape of the seating, brings a more open and inviting look to the quite solid design. Adrian Pearsall was more often inspired by boats for his designs, which makes it no surprise that he pursued a career in yachts after he left the design world in the 1970s. The upholstery of this sofa features a vibrant blue fabric, but this can of course be adjusted to your own preferences by our experienced craftsman in our own in-house restoration atelier. The sofa can be placed in the middle of the room or away from the wall, providing the room a lively ambiance.
Adrian Pearsall (1925-2011), trained as an architectural engineer, was a sailor and interior designer. In 1952, Pearsall opened his own furniture company ‘Craft Associates’. Pearsall designed some of the most sensuous, gracious midcentury design pieces around, sharing many of the design aesthetics by Vladimir Kagan. His pieces are characterized by flamboyant curves, upswept shapes and stretched proportions.
