Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin Walnut Bench or Coffee Table

About

This rare Monumental Milo Baughman table is from his earliest collaboration with Thayer Coggin and retains the original paper label. The sleek, long and low design in the bookmatched walnut is not only visually stunning but also quite versatile. It can be used as a bench with or without an added cushion or as an oversized coffee table. It would also be interesting as a low media console to accommodate stereo equipment or a television. Could also be used to visually anchor a large piece of artwork. Completely refinished with no damage. Excellent condition.

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.
