Pale Gray Paul McCobb Chest - SOLD
This is a classic, mid-century modern, designer chest of drawers that has been salvaged, repaired, and refinished. It is one-of-a kind, and it is stunning in person. The chest was originally designed by the Massachusetts born, legendary modern furniture designer Paul McCobb. It was part of the Planner Group collection, which was manufactured by the Winchendon (Massachusetts) Furniture Company, and was among the best selling contemporary furniture lines of the 1950s. The new finish is two hand-painted coats of Benjamin Moore Advance (a premium semi-gloss paint) over two coats of BIN primer. The paint color is a very pale blue gray. The chest is constructed with solid maple. The drawers are clean and deep. Sadly, the chest did not come to us with its original hardware. However, the polished chrome peg knobs that we chose for the drawers are period-authentic reproductions, and we think they suit the piece quite nicely. This piece measures: 36"W x 19"D x 42"H.
