Three Comfortable Wrought Iron and Oak Swiveling Counter Stools by Cleo Baldon

US$5,700per set

About

Rare set of 3 original wrought iron and oak swiveling counter stools by Cleo Baldon. Ideal for comfortable counter height seating (25 in. seat height). Original blue vinyl upholstery in good condition that can be replaced with C. O. M. (1 yard per stool) at an additional cost of 400 per stool. Sold as a set. Cleo Baldon (June 1, 1927 – October 12, 2014) was an American architect, landscape architect, and furniture designer based in Los Angeles, where she contributed to many well-known structures, especially pools. She worked as the design director of Galper-Baldon Associates, headquartered in Venice, California. Baldon is credited with having a profound effect on the California furniture industry with her outdoor furniture designs. Baldon was born in Leavenworth, Washington, but her family lived in the small community of Peshastin, Washington. She came south to study interior design at Woodbury University in Burbank. Baldon took part in the birth of what we now call Mid-Century Modernism. At Woodbury, she became close friends with Robert Theron “Pete” Peters–the architect and illustrator who is widely acknowledged as the practical force in the architectural offices of Craig Ellwood, who himself had no formal training, and would collaborate with him on several design projects. Another of Baldon’s longtime friends was the photographer Julius Shulman, whose work did so much to advance the mythos of modernism. He and Baldon published a design monograph about stairways. Aside from her architectural work, Baldon designed furniture and formed the California company Terra with Galper-Baldon partner Sid Galper. The company manufactured and sold quality outdoor furniture. When she opened Terra, Baldon purchased a foundry to fabricate the metal frames, including the ones for these stools. Baldon was married to novelist, screenwriter and film director Ib Melchior, with whom she co-authored the non-fiction books Reflections on the Pool: California Designs for Swimming and Steps & Stairways. He was the son of Wagnerian tenor Lauritz Melchior.
