Greta Magnusson Grossman, USA, 1948

This floor lamp designed by Greta Magnusson Grossman and sold by Barker Brothers became such a ubiquitous part of the California domestic landscape at the time that it even appeared in the popular comic strip “Mary Worth,” as part of a thoroughly modern bedroom. Grossman used this lamp in many of her interiors, and it can be seen in a sketch for the residence of Frank Sinatra, alongside the chaise longue also in this show.

Floor lamp in enameled aluminum on a chrome-plated steel base with two cone-shaped shades.
