Milo Baughman Chrome Étagère, circa 1970s

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Beautiful chrome and glass étagère with a 1/2 a Greek key on the base by Milo Baughman. Four of the glass shelves are new. One has a line running through it which I believe is not original. Another shelve has minor chips on the edge that are not visible once installed. Several of the glass shelves are different thickness. To replace the glass is a nominal amount.

Overall condition: good. The chrome has some pitting but is in good condition. The shelf does have a slight rock. The shelf itself is sturdy and is structually sound though.

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.
