Midcentury Blue Velvet Milo Baughman Style Parsons Open Arm Club Chairs

About

Pair of midcentury blue velvet Milo Baughman style armchairs. Newly upholstered in a buttery soft blue velvet fabric. (Jewel tones are all the rage in 2018) The back cushions on the chair are cut into accommodate the side arms, and are removable. The feet of the chairs features metal discs for ease in moving. The width on each chair is slightly different. Measuring is as follows: Chair one: Width 26.25" Height 29" Seat height 17" Depth 35". Chair two Width 28.25" Height 29" Seat height 17" Depth 35". These would make a statement in a living room, dining room (used as host and hostess chairs) a bedroom (in my opinion, Every bedroom needs at least one chair.) or in an entry way. I would consider selling these individually if interested in only one.

About Milo Baughman (Maker)

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.
