About

Extremely comfortable and increasingly rare, this large two piece sectional by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin, 1960s, features a curved semi-circle design on Rosewood plinth base. This example has been reupholstered in recent years in a teal colored textured velvet fabric. Signed underneath with Thayer Coggin label. This rare sofa is extremely comfortable. The cushions are plush down filled and deep. The fabric is soft and cozy. So much space to stretch out and relax. Interior designers - this sofa is what you need for your client and this example is a fantastic authentic option that you can use with its existing fabric or reupholster to a new one. The current upholstery is in very good condition and has only received a few light years of use to it. We can steam clean prior to shipping for a fresh clean start in its new home. Fantastic option to use in a conversation pit along with a round coffee table and pair of lounge chairs. Consider using a Philip and Kelvin LaVerne round coffee table such as a Chan or Eternal Forest series, contact us for our current stock. This Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggins sectional sofa would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office.

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.
