Glenn of California was a furniture company based in Arcadia, California, that was at the forefront of the California Modernist design movement in the 1940s and 1950s. The most significant influence on the development of the company was the California Modern collection by Milo Baughman and Greta Magnusson Grossman. Using walnut, iron and Formica, they created a distinctive Los Angeles style.
Other well-known designers who created furniture for Glenn of California were Paul Laszlo, John Kapel, Robert Baron, Stanley Young and Kipp Stewart.
