Who Was Adrian Pearsall?
Adrian Pearsall (born 1925, Trumansburg, New York) was an American architect and furniture designer.
Adrian Pearsall founded Craft Associates in Pennsylvania in 1952 to manufacture his own designs. By the late 1950's his designs incorporating walnut became hugely popular and cemented Pearsall as a Designer to be reckoned with. He had great flair as a designer and was brave and modern in his approach. No doubt his Architectural background influenced this. His designs were considered to be part of the 'Atomic Age' design at the time and are now icons of this design period.
Adrian's name and designs are currently licensed to Restoration Hardware by his children.
