While researching some chairs we acquired that were purported to be Paul McCobb-designed, I stumbled across several information resources about the celebrated mid-century designer. McCobb’s designs are sought after and thoroughly modern even 60 years later. He’s worth knowing about, so here are some resources for diving in:
- Paul McCobb blog Planner, Perimeter, Predictor, Paul McCobb
- Paul McCobb blog post on Mid-Centuria
- Paul McCobb Facebook page
By the way, it turns out that the chairs ARE Paul McCobb — and rare ones at that from his Predictor line of furniture. We’re in the process of restoring them and hope to have them in the store this spring. Here’s what we’re aiming for after restoration. Just the chairs, mind you, but wouldn’t we love to find that desk!
