New White with Gray Stripe Upholstery Paul McCobb Arm or Lounge Chair with Stool

US$6,710

About

Offered is a Mid-Century Modern newly upholstered in white with a gray pin stripe Paul McCobb arm or lounge chair with Paul McCobb stool that was not originally sold with this chair. The chair is for sale and the stool is an extra newly upholstered and refinished piece thrown in with the sale of the chair. The chair and stool were sold together as a set at auction and upon further inspection, we realized that the stool was not apart of that particular set. That being said, the Paul McCobb designed arm or lounge chair is beautifully designed and of the high standards with which McCobb manufactured his pieces. We have interpreted the piece with a more current fabric of a bouclé in a creamy white with a gray pinstripe. We suggest requesting additional detailed photographs as we are limited to 20 per listing. Please visit the MrsPK&OZ storefront on 1stdibs for our full range of seating. If you like what you see, please follow MrsPK&OZ on 1stdibs. MrsPK&OZ is located at 2303 Portsmouth Houston, Tx 77098. The dimensions of the foot stool are: 15" H x 20.5" W x 20.5" D.

About the Designer

Paul McCobb

You could call Paul McCobb a man of parts. As a furniture designer, his work combined the attributes of many of his now better-known peers. Like Bauhaus designers such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer, his furniture had purity of form and line. Like the designs of Florence Knoll and George Nelson and his associates, McCobb’s work was efficient and purposeful. And even like George Nakashima, he was adept at interpreting traditional forms, in particular those of chairs, for the 20th century. More than any other designer beside Russel Wright, with his ubiquitous ceramic tableware, McCobb was arguably responsible for the introduction of modern design into middle-class American households — if for no other reason than that he designed the 1952 set for the original Today show. McCobb also designed cohesive lines of furnishings, such as his best-known Planner Group, that gave homes an instant “look.” McCobb designed for several companies, most notably Directional, the New York firm that also produced designs by other legends, such as Paul Evans and Vladimir Kagan. The signal aesthetic attribute of McCobb designs is that he completely forsook ornament — his pieces have no flourishes. And yet, because they are honest — the chairs, desks and tables are made of solid wood, usually maple or birch, often paired with frames and legs of wrought iron; the cabinets are traditionally scaled; the seating pieces have historic antecedents such as the Windsor chair — McCobb’s mid-century modern work has warmth and presence. As you can see from the offerings on 1stDibs, Paul McCobb designs are the pin-striped suit, or the little black dress, of a décor: an essential.
