SET OF 4 MAPLE "PASCOE" CHAIRS
One of the most distinctive and effective examples of an American mid-century chair, the "Pascoe" chair debuted in 1951.
Designed by Clifford Pascoe the chair is often mis-attributed (to much better known designer) Paul McCobb.
McCobb did design a very similar chair for Directional (a furniture showroom that would have great success with Paul Evans) yet this example was only in production for 2 years. Its main distinction was its wooden saddle seat.
Pascoe's version had an upholstered seat was priced far more competitively. It was also included the MoMA's Good Design Show of 1952.
For all of these reasons it became commercially successful and had a long production run.
The chair remains a paradigm of American mid-century design for its simplicity, unfussy form and its sculptural stack laminate back rest.
