Milo Baughman Storage Room Divider for Glenn of California

About

Divider or storage unit designed by Milo Baughman for Glenn of California, and produced, circa 1950. An early Baughman design suited to the purpose of dividing open-plan space. The case has doors that open on either side, with an adjustable shelf in each bay, and round finger pulls. The floating shelves can be used to store books or display objects. The absence of ornament or pulls emphasizes the strong architectural elements the flat planes supported by rounded posts and the graining of the walnut and red birch. Cleaned and polished but otherwise in fine vintage condition. Ref: Hennessey, Modern Furnishings for the Home, p. 159.

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.
