Midcentury Burled Rosewood & Graphite Mohair by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin

$18,475Asking Price

About

This elegant and understated sofa was designed by Milo Baughman and realized by Thayer Coggin in the United States, circa 1970. It features an austere rectilinear form with two rectangular arms that provide ample space to support a drink glass (functioning also as side tables) and an apron of roughly the same proportions undergirding the seats- all in a book matched and burled rosewood. The cushions have been newly reupholstered in a stunning graphite mohair that offers a rich contrast to the visual complexity of the woodgrain. With its clean modernist lines and beautiful quality of construction, this piece would be a winning addition to any style of interior from classic Mid-Century Modern to contemporary. It has been newly reupholstered and restored to mint condition. American, circa 1970 Dimensions: 102" W 30" H x 35.5" D Seat height 18.75".

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.
