Mid Century Modern Credenza by Milo Baughman for Arch Gordon

$6,000

About

Beautiful and rare credenza designed by Milo Baughman for Arch Gordon. An absolute classic design hitting all the great points and materials the era has to offer. Sleek tapered black metal legs. A solid travertine top. Solid wood drawer fronts that alternate between walnut and teak. Cane sliding doors framed in solid wood. Veneered side panels and a finished back. This piece is offered in original condition. Instead of a full refinish the piece was just deep cleaned. The drawer pulls are the only non original piece on the credenza. There is some wear with some finish loss on the cane. Which has offered some beautiful coloring to the front. A small veneer chip on the top of the left side panel that is hidden by the travertine top. And finally some extremely minor chips on the top. We felt it was best to keep it as is in its original condition because it has aged beautifully, Authentic mid Century Modern design but would look great in any modern, minimalist, natural, or contemporary designed home.

About the Designer

Milo Baughman

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, such as chairs, sofas and benches. He had 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. He 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 seating 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 1stDibs, Milo Baughman’s designs for the likes of Drexel Furniture, Glenn of California and — for five decades — Thayer Coggin are ably employed as either the heart of a décor or its focal point.
