About

Fabulous vintage modern large mirror by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin. Comprised of gorgeous rosewood veneer and mirror glass with beveled edges. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. The glass has a few age-related scratches, and a bit of the silvering is worn. There are a few chips, nicks, or dings in the wood veneer. The smaller veneer flaws were filled while larger pieces were replaced for restoration, and it looks beautiful. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1970’s. NOTE: We have matching pieces including  a queen headboard, this large mirror, a wardrobe, and a pair of nightstands.  You can find them all for sale here if they are still available. It’s been said that “Life is like a mirror; we get the best results when we smile!” and boy do we have a BIG reason for you to smile…Look again at this magnificent rectangular large sized vintage modern mirror designed and created by the ICONIC duo Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin?? WHAT!! Yes…Let’s start by talking about the incredible, almost breathtaking grain in the rosewood veneer… The veneer on the face pieces is so beautifully matched, it just draws you in…it’s stunning to say the least!! The mirror itself has beautiful, beveled edges and some age patina on the surface that we think is lovely. This marvelous mirror could be hung horizontally or vertically but it’s also large enough to lean against a wall and stand on its own. It would be beautiful in a bedroom either over a dresser or in your dressing room. Possibilities are limitless. When eclectic partnerships such as Milo Baughman and Thayer Coggin come together and create, it results in furniture with style and presence that is simply unmatchable and highly sought after. Versatility, exemplary presence, and magnificent mid-century modern style…how can you go wrong? One of the most remarkable partnerships in the mid-century modern to modern design world was the phenomenal furniture making duo of Milo Baughman and Thayer Coggin. Milo Baughman, a 20th Century genius of design, was born in Western Kansas in 1923 but was moved a year later by his family to Long Beach, California. He created Milo Baughman Design Inc. in 1947 and began designing interiors and furniture. Thayer Coggin was born in 1922 in Denton, North Carolina. Twelve years later his family moved 25 miles north to High Point where he grew up surrounded by furniture manufacturing. Thayer’s first love was furniture and Milo’s was design. So, together in 1953, after the two met, history was made in American furniture making by one of the greatest collaborations in the industry. During his career and before his death in 2003, Milo did design for several other companies as well as his own, but it is his collaboration with Thayer Coggin that is most impressive and sought-after today. Thayer Coggin, Inc. is still in business today even after its namesake’s death and is still offering classic selections from the late Baughman’s designs. Remember…Life is only a reflection of what we allow ourselves to see… And can’t you just SEE yourself in the reflection of this fabulous mirror designed and created by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin?? Make it yours!!

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, such as chairs, sofas and benches. He had 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. He 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 seating 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 for the likes of Drexel Furniture, Glenn of California and — for five decades — Thayer Coggin are ably employed as either the heart of a décor or its focal point.
