Description

One of a kind, custom-made original by Lee David Interiors, David Eberhart & Design Associates. New textured orange fabric beautifully outfits this long midcentury Asian modern inspired Adrian Pearsall style sofa. We’ve never seen a gondola design as elegant as this. Solid walnut arcs outline and frame the entire front and back to create an architecturally beautiful and solid construction. Masterfully crafted from concept to completion both now and when originally imagined in the early 1960s. Such daring design. An absolute one-of-a-kind showstopper.

Internal support structure is all new, rebuilt with new webbing and decking. Freshly reupholstered in period appropriate fabric that has the touch and look of suede. Copied by our upholsterer to match the original look. The closest thing to a new vintage sofa that you can get.

Adrian Pearsall designed some of the most exuberant and expressive American furniture of the 1950s and ’60s. For verve and vivacity of form, he surpasses even Vladimir Kagan — whose work is the emblem of swinging, sexy mid-20th century modernism. Pearsall gave his imagination free rein, and his flamboyant, eye-catching styles are icons of what has become known as “Atomic Age” design. He studied architectural engineering at the University of Illinois before opening his Pennsylvania furniture company, Craft Associates, in 1952, and that training shows in many designs. A Pearsall trademark, for example, is a lounge chair with an exceptionally tall, trapezoidal back, which give the pieces a skyscraper-like silhouette. Pearsall also had a talent for so-called “gondola” sofas — long, low-slung pieces with upswept ends. Many of his sofas and chairs are supported not by legs, but on gently arced walnut skids. He also had a gift for tables, in particular glass-topped side and coffee tables with frames that have the look of an Alexander Calder stabile. His work adds an attention-getting, sculptural exclamation point to any décor.
