Description

This stunning set of drawers captures Paul McCobb's vision for furniture that is simple, understated and elegant. The design features a sleek birch cabinet, topped with luxurious granite and raised elegantly on a brass stretcher base. It's a showcase of the high quality cabinetry and thoughtful restraint that defines McCobb's work.

Paul McCobb's designs were an important part of forming the American post war aesthetic and his work covered an extensive list of interior products, even including radios and wallpaper. Recently McCobb's designs have won over high profile fans like Paul McCartney, who holds an armchair in his personal collection.

We are pleased to be able to offer this very rare piece to a New Zealand audience.
