Pair of Milo Baughman T-Back Cube Lounge Chairs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Sensational pair of cube lounge chairs by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin. The chairs are as good a pair as we've ever seen, with their frames in mint condition. The graphic period upholstery was also so clean and incredible that we thought to give the buyer the chance to keep it if desired instead of reupholstering them, which we'd also be happy to do at the buyer's direction. These Classic chairs from Mr. Baughman are some of the most desirable of all time and to find a pair in such fine condition is rare.

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.
