Is it a nightstand? YES! Is it an end or side table? It certainly could be… YES!! Either way, isn’t it FABULOUS? We sure think so!! This is a stunning vintage mid-century modern nightstand or end table designed by Glenn of California. It is comprised of GORGEOUS rosewood top and drawer fronts bordered by an aluminum strip, grooved handle pulls on the sides of the two drawers, cased with black painted sides, and the top drawer is slightly smaller than the bottom. It will be fantastic beside your bed used as a nightstand, but it would be equally as wonderful in a sitting room or family room next to a lounge chair hosting a lovely table lamp, sculpture, or foliage. It is versatile, made with impeccable quality, and it is a phenomenal piece of mid-century modern excellence.
Glenn of California was owned by father and son team Isaac and Robert Baron and based in Arcadia California and has been credited for being at the forefront of the West Coast modernist design movement in the 1940’s and 1950’s. The company made a name for itself when it hired Milo Baughman. They would go on to hire Swedish architect and designer Greta Magnusson-Grossman, the first woman to receive an award from the Swedish Society of Industrial Design. The significant furniture line she and Baughman designed called the California Modern Collection became known for its laid-back Los Angeles style and integration of walnut, iron, and Formica. Glenn of California collaborated with many notable designers including Kipp Stweart, Paul Laslo, John Kapel, & Stanley Young. Although Glenn of California is no longer in business, their high-end vintage furniture is sought after today.
