Paul McCobb Chair

It's easy enough to find an excellent reproduction of a Wenger or Eames chair at Design Within Reach, or Room and Board. But some of those designs have become cliches.

Now here's a chair you won't see every day:

It's the Planner Group Occasional Chair by Paul McCobb. McCobb was a contemporary of George Nelson and he helped introduce Americans to modular furniture. He became a household name in the 1950's, earning himself the nickname "America's Decorator".

The chair is for sale now on CraigsList. Link will expire.

Thanks LostCityArts
