|Furniture and Lamp designed by Greta Magnusson Gross|
Field Trip Friday. On Friday, Larry and I ventured out to the Pasadena Museum of California Art to see an exhibit of the furniture and accessories by Greta Magnusson Grossman. Greta was a Swedish designer who moved to Los Angeles in 1940. Her work is beautiful, simple and accessible. Her lamps are sleek...the Cobra Lamp being my favorite. This was a small exhibit, including drawings, furniture, lamps, textiles and architectural models. I hadn't realized that she also designed homes.

An added plus at the small museum was an exhibit by our acquaintance, Guillermo Bert and his Encoded Textiles. His pieces are very clever and modern with an ancient Chilean twist.
It was a beautiful day in Pasadena. We had to stop and take a photo of the Pasadena City Hall, surrounded by perfect puffy clouds.

We stopped at Daisy Mint for a wonderful Thai lunch. I just love the decor of this eclectic place.

I have a couple more days of vacation left and hope to take more field trips!
