Greta Magnusson Grossman (1906-1999)

Born in Helsingborg, Sweden Greta Grossman was an architect and furniture designer also know for interior design. She was among the first female architectural designers. During WWII (1940) Greta moved to California and opened the Rodeo Drive Magnussen Grossman Studio in Los Angeles. Amazingly Greta was the only woodworking apprentice in Helsingborg, Sweden and from a Swedish cabinet making family. She was the first woman recognized for her work in furniture design. In the early 1930’s she opened her Studio at the Stureplan public square in Stockholm. From 1957-1963 Greta taught furniture design at UCLA.
