Today Pearson is a collection of Hickory Chair. The Hickory Chair workroom became the home to the Pearson collection in 2014.

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.
