1958 Paul McCobb lounge chairs - Restoration by Greene Furniture


I recently completed the restoration of these rare lounge chairs by Paul McCobb, which included ebonizing the natural walnut. The chairs are owned by interior designer, Robert Fodor, and are currently on display at Highland Park, a SOHO design store located at 175 West Broadway. *Special thanks to Sol Ovidia at Prestige Furniture & Design in Woodside Queens for the upholstery on these chairs.

Paul McCobb Predictor Linear lounge chairs manufactured in 1958 for the O'Hearn Furniture Company of Gardner, MA. Made of walnut wood and ebonized (not lacquered). The chairs have been reupholstered with two sets of cushions. One set in new Maharam Melange Tweed "Inca" upholstery fabric; and one set in original vintage 1955 Alexander Girard "Jacob's Coat" stripe upholstery fabric. Both sets are included."
