Clifford Pascoe dining chairs

These 50s dining chairs by Clifford Pascoe are often attributed to Paul McCobb but they just look similar to a design of his.

The original seat covering always seems to be an ivory vinyl and it’s always kind of bunchy at the corners.  But they’re nice chairs!


The owner of this pair chose Eames “Small Dot” fabric in gray.  Such an improvement.


The original seats were hard and I just assumed there was no padding under the vinyl.  It looked like wood…sort of.


But then I looked more closely and saw that there was a thin layer of very compressed foam, like only 1/16″ thick, over the whole surface of the seat.  It was easy to scrape off and underneath was nice clean plywood.
