Rare Swivel Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin

About

This is undoubtedly the coolest and rarest chair ever produced by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin. We have only seen one other of these chairs in all our years in the Design Trade. There was no expense spared in the restoration of this fabulous and collectible chair and ottoman. It was found in good original condition but we pulled out all the stops and did a ground up restoration which included rebuilding the most important element of the chair’s structure, its seat. The seat is a complex, multi-level plywood creation that was the weak link of the design, and prone to delamination. We re-engineered it with a sheet metal sandwich, keeping all the original dimensions but added strength and rigidity so that the seat cannot fail or delaminate and making it the perfect and strong foundation for the seatback. The bases were both professionally re-polished and are virtually as-new. It's also been reupholstered in the finest quality Italian leather....a perfect match for the original. The Walnut plywood shell was refinished in an open-grain satin sheen and the swivel plates were replaced with new. All in all, the chair is much better than it was new. It’s ready for another fifty years of life. With all that, the chair is super comfortable as well as good looking. Eames Lounge chairs are nice, but everyone’s got one. There’s no chance that you’ll ever run into another one of these.

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.
