Organization: Internet Archive

These crawls are part of an effort to archive pages as they are created and archive the pages that they refer to. That way, as the pages that are referenced are changed or taken from the web, a link to the version that was live when the page was written will be preserved.

Then the Internet Archive hopes that references to these archived pages will be put in place of a link that would be otherwise be broken, or a companion link to allow people to see what was originally intended by a page's authors.

The goal is to fix all broken links on the web. Crawls of supported "No More 404" sites.

Thank you for showing your interest in the life and designs of Adrian Pearsall, a leader in early modern furniture design. Over the past few years, there has been renewed interest in Adrian Pearsall's designs and on an almost daily basis we are contacted about the origin of a piece of furniture that a consumer may own or want to purchase. Adrian Pearsall was prolific with his designs and even at the height of production, allowed for custom work, making it very difficult to archive all of the interesting designs that were distributed throughout the world. We have worked hard to catalog and identify as much as possible, all of Adrian Pearsall's designs throughout his career. Just imagine taking fifty years of work and trying to catalog it. This work is being done by the children of Adrian Pearsall.

In order to protect you, the discriminating collector, we now certify the authenticity of Adrian Pearsall and Craft Associates & Comfort Designs furniture as a paid service. The fee we are charging for this service is used for the legal protection of Adrian Pearsall’s designs and intellectual property. This process will also protect the consumer and current owners assuring you that you own authentic Adrian Pearsall designs. We encourage all lovers of Adrian Pearsall designs to express your discontent to any and all sellers who misrepresent their products as authentic or authorized in any way as Adrian Pearsall / Craft Associates/Comfort Designs furniture designs.

The certification process is fairly simple. The Pearsall family has a full catalog of Adrian Pearsall’s designs to reference. For a fee of $125.00, your submission will be researched. If the item you submitted is in the catalog, we will make a copy of the catalog sheet and email it to you along with a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity. If the item is not in the catalog, we will not attribute it to another manufacturer or designer. We will however, try to furnish copies of catalog sheets of similarly designed pieces that may have led a person to think they have an Adrian Pearsall piece. In addition, links will be provided to online videos, web casts and interviews about Adrian Pearsall.  Submissions that are not authentic are charged $75.00. At least four photographs should be submitted for each piece from underneath, above, front and back. We may need to ask for additional photos. If you are considering purchasing a piece of furniture, ask your dealer to provide certification. If they are honest and legitimate, they should have no problem honoring your request. We will invoice through PayPal after we have provided you with our report. Requests for certification should be emailed to jpearsall1482@gmail.com

Adrian Pearsall Certification

Certification is performed by Adrian “James” Pearsall, son of Adrian M. Pearsall (deceased) and Doris K. Pearsall (deceased). Jim Pearsall was employed by Craft Associates (founded and owned by Adrian Pearsall) beginning at age twelve, during his summer vacation from school. Mr. Pearsall travelled extensively with his parents to furniture markets throughout the United States, including New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, High Point, NC and Los Angeles. After graduation from Cornell University and a career in the hospitality business, Jim joined Comfort Designs Furniture (founded by John Graham and in partnership with Adrian Pearsall) as their manufacturer’s representative for South Florida and Bermuda. Mr. Pearsall has full access to complete sets of catalogs dating from the first designs and manufactured in 1950 in the basement of his parent’s home through the last pieces manufactured at Comfort Designs. Mr. Pearsall can be relied upon to give an honest and accurate account of your furniture submissions thought to be original Adrian Pearsall designs and confirm authentication with photocopies taken from the existing catalogs. Valuation is NOT part of this service. The ultimate goal of this service is to assist and protect the collector from fraudulent representation of furniture, artwork and intellectual property for sale by individuals, manufacturers, designers as well as dealers who claim to sell furniture designed or inspired by Adrian Pearsall or manufactured by his companies.



Submissions that are found not to be authentic Adrian Pearsall designs will be charged a fee of $75.00. When a submitted request for certification cannot be certified, supporting evidence would include copies of photographs of an original Adrian Pearsall design that most likely resembles the submitted photo(s).


Submissions that can be successfully certified will be charged $150. This fee applies to individual, unrelated items. For example, if you submit a photograph of a sofa sectional and want to know if the cocktail table that you have is also authentic, the fee is an additional $150.00 (or if it is determined that is not authentic, $75.00).



Payment is expected when service is rendered via delivery of the documents to a drop box account provided by the service. Invoices are issued via PayPal and can be paid with a variety of major credit cards via PayPal. Clients will be sent a link to the drop box containing all of the related documents to your submission(s). Clients are urged to download all documents to their own computers and print copies for their own use. Drop box accounts will be deleted from our server after six months have passed from initial delivery. Documents are not retrievable and cannot be reprinted without recertification at current pricing.


Submission Process

If you own the furniture, please take photographs of the entire piece from the front, back, sides and underneath. Close-up photographs are rarely useful, but if needed, you will be contacted. If you are requesting a certification for you have seen online, you may send us a link to that item, but understand that we may require additional photographs. Please include your email address. Submit your certification request to jpearsall1482@gmail.com. Include the photographs and any other details that you think may be helpful in determining the authenticity of the design. Feel free to divide your email into several emails if your email server does not allow you email large files.
