A wonderful daybed designed by KEM Weber for Lloyd Manufacturing in 1935. Four gently curved tubular chrome legs support the simply styled seat. The legs show some minor pitting and wear. The fabric is excellent, it is vintage though probably not original.
Designer K.E.M. (Karl Emanuel Martin) Weber (1889-1963) was active in the formative years of the California modern design community. Weber was born in Berlin and trained as a cabinetmaker under Eduard Schultz, a Royal Cabinetmaker. In the late 1920s Weber opened his own industrial design studio in Hollywood, and would continue to freelance in several different fields for the rest of his career. Weber took on the rounded corners of the streamlined style, almost obliterating any right angles in his work. From 1931-1941 Weber was a teacher at the influential Pasadena Art Center School. In 1945 he moved back to Santa Barbara where he designed private homes for the next decade.
