1970s Tubular Chrome Cane Glass Milo Baughman for Design Institute Coffee Table

About

You won't find an finer example of this splendiferous coffee table anywhere. Designed by Milo Baughman for Design Institute. The tubular chromed aluminum frame creates colossal strength while keeping weight to a minimum. The polished finish contrasts perfectly against the rich, amber honey cane top. This cane has been essentially locked under glass and is the closest thing to near perfect mint condition that you expect to find after 40 years. The original glass is also in outstanding condition. The chrome is in excellent vintage condition and has been cleaned, polished and buffed to a mirror-like finish. Purchase with confidence, we're certain this piece will look even better in person and exceed your expectations. Besides going back in time and buying one new, this is the next best thing.

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.
