About Pearson

Some 80 years ago, the Clyde Pearson company was founded and has been in continuous operation ever since, producing premium upholstered furniture for designers and their clients nationwide. Today Pearson is a collection of Hickory Chair. The Hickory Chair workroom became the home to the Pearson collection in 2014. With the move to the historic Hickory, North Carolina workroom, the talented artisans and craftsmen of Hickory Chair welcomed and embraced the Pearson product line and immediately made enhancements to the offering. Beginning with the launch of a monogram program, designers and retail sales associates were then delighted with the ability to utilize both Hickory Chair and Pearson’s fabrics, leathers and trims without incurring up-charges, and in late 2020, the ability to select from the assortment of finishes between the lines further simplified the selection process. The Pearson collection is made up of more than 500 styles, ranging from traditional to contemporary, dressy to casual, and is created by our own design staff. In 2018, two distinctive licensed collections, the Kim Scodro Collection and the Tony Duquette Collection, were introduced to bring fresh new perspectives to Pearson.

In June 2021, a distinctive array of occasional wood pieces were introduced. The signature launch includes cocktail tables, end tables, spot tables and chests with a large launch of additional pieces planned for fall 2021. Each piece stands on its own and is perfectly scaled to complement the Pearson collection's vast upholstered offerings. The Pearson Occasional collection is stocked in a standard finish with the ability for quick shipment and is also available in Pearson and Hickory Chair finishes to allow personalization for your room.

As Pearson upholstery is made to order, one may select from a nearly endless selection of options to allow you to personalize your piece. Among our selection of stylish fabrics, trims and leathers are exclusive looks from the finest resources in this country and abroad. From this you may find the right combination for your home or you may wish to send us your own fabric. The substantial frame, the coil spring arrangement with our trademarked Salem Rod® support system, and the cushioning can stand up to daily use and offer remarkable comfort for years to come.

We take pride in having a close working relationship with our many established dealers, trade showrooms and interior designers across the country. This cooperation provides personalized service before, during and after sale. Customer satisfaction is, without question, our top priority.
