Adrian Pearsall chair & Flexsteel ‘gondola-style’ sofa

A Flexsteel sofa that bears a  striking resemblance to an Adrian Pearsall gondola sofa paired with an actual Adrian Pearsall/Craft Associates 2406C chair – both purchased new in 1965 and upholstered in the same colorful fabric.

purple chair & labelAt home in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the owner called to ask me about re-upholstery, and said they needed some minor wood repair. I haven’t heard what she ultimately did with these – I’m guessing she kept them in the family, along with all the precious memories associated with them.
