Rosewood and Leather Case Sofa by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin, circa 1960


Handsome early production rosewood and white leather case sofa from Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin, circa 1960. The casing is fabricated from solid rosewood with stunning grain, enveloping the white leather upholstery on three sides. Baughman's design allows for the sofa to appear as though it is levitating, elevating itself on four cylindrical wood legs. This highly coveted sofa with mix of high end materials would compliment various locations such as a living room, den, games room, office space or bedroom. Interior design styles it would optimize are, Minimalistic, eclectic, contemporary or Mid-Century Modern. It would also be great in a hospitality or corporate location, such as, a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office, or in a luxe clothing emporium. Very good condition with minor wear commensurate with age and use. Ready to be used immediately. Measurements: 24.5" H x 84" W x 34" D.

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.
