John Caldwell’s first break as a freelance furniture designer was in Los Angeles in the late 1950s.
One of his first designs was produced in 1957 when he was 18 and still a student.
Caldwell has designed outdoor furniture, office furniture and accessories, umbrellas, lighting,
and ceiling fans for the United States and world markets. He also has taught and lectured on design for 20 years at various California colleges, including Long Beach State, Pasadena City College and the Art Center College of Design.
He has always been interested in using the latest light-weight, durable, and easy to clean materials for his outdoor lines with aluminum being his favorite material for practicality
