Pair of Mid Century Swivel Chairs on Ebonized Walnut Bases by Milo Baughman

About

This elegant pair of Mid-Century Modern swivel chairs were realized by Milo Baughman, circa 1970. They feature gently curved backs with angled sides, resting on circular bases in ebonized walnut. They have been newly reupholstered in chambray and sapphire blue woven linen in a large houndstooth pattern. With their clean modernist lines, these chairs are as timeless as they are aesthetically compelling, blending perfectly with any style of interior from classic Mid-Century Modern to contemporary. Mint restored condition. American, circa 1970. Dimensions: 24" H X 31.5" W X 28" 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.
