Pair of 1970s Flat Bar Milo Baughman Chairs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

You are viewing a sharp and distinctive pair of flat bar milo chairs. The seats were finished to Fritz and Hollanders specifications in a soft Italian leather, new foam with a tufted design. To say the least, they are very comfortable. The gold-plated flat bars on both chairs have some faint wear to the edges and faint scratches throughout (no gouges) which should be expected for 47 year old chairs. The wear does not take away from the strong character of the chairs and a matter of fact enhances their fine age. We must point out the low and wide profile which we love so much. Please view all the photos.

About Milo Baughman (Designer)

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 these pages, Milo Baughman’s designs are ably employed as either the heart of a décor or its focal point.
