Modern Line Lounge Chair, Brass

$4,667per item

About

The Modern Line Lounge chair was designed in 1949 by Greta M. Grossman. Modern Line was one of her most elegant and minimalistic designs and was praised in particular for being representative of her background in Scandinavian design. Her timeless lounge chair has a sleek, feminine and light expression that is supported with elegant slender legs, which is a true signature for Greta M. Grossman’s designs. In Grossman’s own words, the sofa was “developed out of our own preferences for living in a modern way.” Lead time: 6-8 weeks.

About Greta Magnusson-Grossman (Designer)

Designer and architect Greta Magnusson-Grossman first gained fame in her native Sweden, where she established her store and workshop and became the first woman to receive a prize for furniture design from the Swedish Society of Industrial Design. In 1940, she married jazz musician Billy Grossman and moved to Los Angeles.

Upon her arrival in Southern California, she opened the Magnusson-Grossman Studio on Rodeo Drive and rapidly became popular among the Hollywood elite, including Greta Garbo and Gracie Allen. In addition to creating iconic furniture and lighting — like the Grasshopper series for Barker Bros. or the Cobra lamp for Ralph O. Smith — Magnusson-Grossman designed 14 homes in the Los Angeles area inspired by the Case Study Houses. Combining her Scandinavian roots with laid-back West Coast style, she became a notable contributor to California modernism.
