—01. Vintage advertisement for the Planner Group series.
US born Paul McCobb as been a household name since the Planner Group series came to prominence in the 1950s. I learned about him recently when I asked Kyle Garner about some of his favorite designers, and the chairs in this series came up. My curiosity combined with an increasing interest in furniture lead me to some reading and the rest of the Planner Group series. It's a beautiful selection of pieces from the chairs to the storage units. The angles and round shapes he used makes them just as appealing today as they were 61 years ago when they came out. While they do go for a decent price, you can still find reasonable deals in bigger cities and even through eBay.—Selection of McCobb's designs
