Description This Planner Group credenza is a mid-century modern design marvel! Made by Winchendon furniture makers from 1949 till 1964 it was designed by internationally known and revered designer Paul McCobb. It is comprised of a maple cabinet fitted with fabric covered sliding doors in white which close over interior drawers and shelves. We believe this cabinet to have its original walnut finish. It is model #1514 which features attached tapered legs. The Planner Group in its time was considered one of America’s foremost coordinated groups of contemporary furniture. It obtained widespread acclaim and honors. It was praised by designers and architects for its simplicity, scale, refined lines and its variety. It still is today.

Paul McCobb (1917-1969), is a 20th Century design genius. He wanted to be an artist from childhood and studied drawing and painting for a time but left his studies to enlist in the Army in 1942. Only serving a short time and was medically discharged in 1943. McCobb’s design genius was first noticed while working as a design and decorating consultant for Martin Feinman’s Modernage Furniture in New York City in 1948. While there he met B.G. Mesberg who later became his business partner in the Planner and Directional furniture lines. He won many awards and is represented in museums around the world. His other well-known furniture lines are Predictor, Calvin Group, Directional, Irwin Group, and Connoisseur Collection. Paul McCobb’s trend-making designs were an influence in all facets of the home furnishing field during the mid-century modern era. They proved to be classics and are widely sought after by collectors today.

Whether you call this mid-century modern design classic piece of furniture a buffet, credenza, server, sideboard, or just a cabinet…you need to call it yours!
