Pair of Oval Swivel Lounge Chairs with Walnut Swivel Bases by Milo Baughman


A handsome and super comfortable pair of oval lounge chairs with figured Walnut veneer swivel bases by Milo Baughman. The attached tufted back cushions make these chairs a versatile choice for TV watching, reading, or just lounging in supreme comfort. The bases have been refinished in medium dark brown lacquer, showing off their beautiful grain and the chairs have been upholstered in the highest quality, luxurious heavyweight Charcoal Grey Mohair-like velvet. You won't find a more stylish, comfortable, or versatile chair anywhere and the reduced depth makes this amply scaled chair work in several settings, where only a larger chair would normally work. Construction includes traditional eight-way hand tied springs for added comfort.

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.
