Milo Baughman

American, 1923-2003

Milo Baughman was one of the most agile and adept modern American furniture designers of the late 20th century. A prolific lecturer and writer on the benefits of good design — he taught for years at Brigham Young University — Baughman (whose often-scrambled surname is pronounced BAWF-man) focused almost exclusively on residential furnishings, having a particular talent for lounge chairs, perhaps the most sociable piece of furniture.

Like his fellow adoptive Californians Charles and Ray Eames, Baughman’s furniture has a relaxed and breezy air. Baughman was famously opposed to ostentatious and idiosyncratic designs that were made to excite attention. While many of his chair designs are enlivened by such effects as tufted upholstery, Baughman tended to let his materials carry the aesthetic weight, most often relying on chair and table frames made of sturdy and sleek flat-bar chromed metal, and chairs, tables and cabinets finished with highly-figured wood veneers.

Like his colleagues Karl Springer and the multifarious Pierre Cardin, Baughman’s designs are emblematic of the 1970s: sleek, sure and scintillating. As you will see from the furniture presented on 1stDibs, Milo Baughman’s designs are ably employed as either the heart of a décor or its focal point.

Questions About Milo Baughman

    A half couch is also called a chaise lounge. It is an upholstered sofa in the shape of a chair that is long enough to support the legs. They are more compact and work beautifully when styled with a footstool or accent armchair in a larger space, but look equally stylish standing on their own. 1stDibs sells different types of half couches ranging from antique and vintage to new and contemporary.
