This solid maple desk and chair is from the Planner Group Series by Paul McCobb manufactured by the Winchendon Furniture Company. This iconic set features long, tapered legs on the right, a beveled edge on the writing surface, and two deep drawers with small, spherical brass knobs. The writing surface of this piece has been refinished while all other surfaces maintain their original factory finish. The original tag is adhered to the interior of the top drawer of the desk. Although the tapered leg dates back much earlier, it was furniture designer Paul McCobb who began using the tapered leg in his designs during the Mid Century Era. His designs went on to become some of the best-selling furniture lines of the 1950s. The use of this detail helped to define the style that other designers utilized later. The chair, also designed by McCobb has an ergonomic shape and a seat height of 17.5 inches.
