About

There can hardly be a more emblematic Mid-Century Modern sofa than the Milo Baughman semi-circular sectional sofa circa 1970s made by Thayer Coggin. The most well known and admired of all circular sofas, it instantly creates an intimate conversation pit in any setting, be it a traditional living room or an open floor plan layout. It brings people together effortlessly in a more familiar and cozy way contrasting traditional seating layouts where guests face one another in a more distant and formal way. This beautiful sofa has been professionally reupholstered in a breathable woven Jonathan Adler Sea Glass fabric for Kravet - a contract grade fabric with a high durability rating. The color reads light aqua or turquoise. Having designed for Thayer Coggin for almost 50 years through 2003, Milo Baughman's circular sofa is an iconic example of his Minimalist aesthetic that sacrifices neither comfort nor function. This circular sofa has been featured in several interior design books and other publications including Architectural Digest (several times over the decades). Exceptional and rare, fun and functional, this sofa is a show stopper that you won't see in many other living rooms. A true gem. Want to see more beautiful things?

About the Designer

Milo Baughman

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.
