Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin Shelter Sofa with Treasure Chest Ottomans

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This seldom seen vintage Thayer Coggin Shelter Sofa designed by Milo Baughman still retains its original Jack Lenor Larsen velvet upholstery and includes the original throw pillows and treasure chest ottomans. The ottomans are large enough to serve as benches and could flank a coffee table when not in use and be moved back in front of the sofa on movie night. Mister Thayer Coggin himself loved this sofa so much he put one in his own home next to the fire place. The height of the back really encapsulates you. It is the ultimate in comfort and coziness and is large enough for overnight guests or naughty husbands to sleep on. This sofa comes from a one owner, pet free, smoke free home and was gently used. There is some fading to the fabric but it is not worn. Could easily be recovered in the textile of your choice.

The seat of the sofa is removable to simplify transport.

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.
