Following is an excerpt I copy and pasted on the life ofAdrian Pearsall:

Born September 18, 1925, in Trumansburg NY, Adrian was the son of Adrian and Emma Pearsall and brother of Richard Lewis Pearsall of Dallas, PA and the late Katherine Pearsall Berg of Newark, DE, and brother Ralph Pearsall who died in early childhood.He met his wife Dorie in 1942 while aboard a train from Ithaca NY to Wilkes-Barre PA, en route to serve in the US Navy at the age of 17, promising Dorie he would return to see her following the war. The promise was kept, and they were married October, 1950, living in Forty Fort, PA, where the Pearsall family still maintains a home.

Following the war, Adrian graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in architectural engineering, class of 1950. He left the architectural field after two years to found Craft Associates, becoming one of the country's most prominent furniture designers during the mid-century “Atomic Age.”With the help of his wife Dorie he began building furniture in the basement of their Kingston, PA home, and selling pieces from the back of their truck to Macy’s, Wanamaker’s, and other prominent New York and Philadelphia department stores. Joined by his brother Richard, Craft Associates went on to become one of Wilkes Barre’s top employers in the 1950's and 1960's. Known for his daring designs which brought high style to the masses, he is credited with the creation of long and low gondola sofas, free-form walnut and glass tables, and the popularization of the venerable bean bag chair. As an industry testament to his achievements, Adrian was nominated for inclusion into the American Furniture Hall of Fame in 2008.

After launching a new company, Comfort Designs, in the 1970’s with business partner John Graham, Adrian eventually left the furniture business, but never really retired. His passion for preservation and meticulous craftsmanship led him to the hobby of sailing and classic yacht restoration. Spending many summers in his historically rebuilt cottage, “Uneeda Rest” in Groton Long Point CT, he enjoyed sailing and maintaining the many treasured vessels he rescued and personally restored over the years, including the now famous 1905, 44ft Herreshoff NY-30, AMORITA; the 50', 1913 P-Class Sloop CHIPS; and the 1924 Herreshoff Watch Hill 15, EMMA. Most notably, he was solely responsible for the rescue and re-build of the long time Fastnet Race record holder, the 72', 1926 William Fife designed HALLOWE'EN, which was completely restored over a four year period in a shed behind the Museum of Yachting, in Newport, RI.
