Greta Magnusson Grossman, USA, 1949
This chaise longue had a short production run and was one of the last fully upholstered pieces that Grossman designed, similar to another chaise with wrought iron feet she created around the same time. There are a few photographs of this version, produced by Sherman Bertram. Its scale is unusual in comparison to other chaise longues because it is wide and short, almost like a love seat. This piece can be seen in a sketch Grossman created for the residence of Frank Sinatra, alongside the floor lamp also on this show. The present example is upholstered with “Max” fabric designed and handwoven by rruka.
Chaise lounge in ivory upholstery with button tufting and tapered wooden feet. Designed by Greta Magnusson Grossman for Sherman Bertram, USA, circa 1949.
