Milo Baughman Scalloped-Back Sectional Sofa

About

Large 1970s sectional sofa consists of three corner sections and three interior sections. Each section has a curved back and, as a result, the sofa reads like individual chairs placed together a striking and unusual design. Structurally sound; original upholstery needs to be replaced. Signed with Thayer-Coggin tags. Each piece is 25-1/2" H to top of back, with cushions extending an additional 4". The seats are about 17-1/2" H. All pieces have a uniform depth of approximately 33". The corner pieces measure 33" W x 33" D. The interior pieces measure 29" W x 33" D. As pictured together in the first photo, approximately 124" W x 95" D x 29-1/2" H. This sectional is in our Chicago warehouse.

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.
