About

Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin large silver leaf over embossed crocodile leather mirror.



Milo Baughman (1925- 2003): American furniture designer, born Kansas, and active California and Utah. Baughman’s family moved to Long Beach, California in the mid 1920s. A highly creative child, he was given carte blanche at age 13 to design the new family home. Baughman served in the Air Force during World War II, and also designed officer's clubs. After the war, he studied architecture and product design at the Art Center School of Los Angeles, and the California School of the Arts.



His training complete, Baughman took a job with the Frank Brothers department store, an emporium noted for its design focus. He worked as a salesman and a window dresser; on the side, he became involved with the influential publication Furniture Forum. His growing reputation soon attracted furniture manufacturer Glenn of California, which hired Baughman to design a new collection. Working mainly with walnut, Formica and wrought iron, Baughman created simple, understated pieces; many were conceived as space dividers, functioning admirably in the open plan interiors characteristic of the California Modern style.
