Greta Magnusson Grossman, USA, 1947
In 1948, Greta Magnusson Grossman stated that to create furniture that could blend all periods. Her solution was not to mix different styles but to develop a unique look. Such is the case with this very rare armchair that Grossman designed for Barker Brothers in 1947, the year they opened Modern Shop. The armchair does combine the typical Scandinavian arm “swoop” with the ease of the California coast, but it is conceived as a new and innovative design. The piece was part of the Multi-Unit Pacific Line, created by Grossman for Barker in Ash wood with a “Palomino” stain finish, which gives the wood a golden sheen.
"Palimino" lounge chair with original hand-woven upholstery on a wood frame.
