Inspired by the historic Le Marias district of Paris, France, we proudly introduced a new collection at the recent International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, North Carolina. Known for its trendy restaurants, art galleries and museums, shopping and architecture, the Le Marias district is a cultural mecca for visitors and residents.
Each piece of the Le Marias Collection was designed as if it were custom made for an apartment in this historic area. The talented artisans and craftsmen that craft each piece of Pearson in Hickory, the home of Pearson's workroom, carefully made luxuriously comfortable upholstery and for the first time in its 74-year history, domestically crafted wood products. Distinctive accent pieces from craftsmen around the world complete the inaugural launch of the collection.
The Camille is a luxuriously comfortable sofa, chair and ottoman that sits upon graceful round tapered legs. Camille's elegant tight back extends upward to create an elegant rolled back framed with tailored pleats.
The Etienne Lounge Chair is a curvaceous hand-carved mahogany chair inspired by an antique found in a Parisian flea market. Shown in a shimmering pink snakeskin patterned chenille fabric and silvery Vermeil finish.
The lovely Evelynn Sofa fuses both masculine and feminine forms with the stern chamfered arms and inset upholstery detail combined with the soft curvature of the front and inset legs allowing the sofa to “float”. Sleek, sophisticated, and comfortable, Evelynn is a highly transitional piece that will fit any lifestyle.
The 6840-00 Lamarr Dining Table is crafted from American Maple in our Hickory, North Carolina workroom. Inspired by the gracefulness of Parisian forms and iconic 20th century décor, the Lamarr pays homage to simplistic architecture, that of suspension and joinery between wood and metal. The maple top rests on four, double sloped, solid maple tapered legs, with a Parisian nickel finish on the hardware. The hardware makes this piece distinctive in its subtle ornateness. As it made in Hickory, you can choose from any of our upholstery finishes and have it made in just a few weeks from order.
The Baird Bar was inspired by the prolific 20th Century Italian designer Paola Buffa; specifically his work done in the 1930’s. He was recognized for his “simple furniture resting on simple supports”. The bar is faced with leathers treated to look like parchment and the interior is lined with clear mirror giving it depth. The bar floats on slender mahogany legs creating a visual lift to any space. Elegant in look and feel, the Baird will fit an array of lifestyles.
