ABOUT: MILO BAUGHMAN (1923-2003), was a pioneer in modern design and one of the leading modern furniture designers of the second half of the 20th century. Baughman was brought east from his native California by Thayer Coggin in the 1950s to design the first lines for his collection of related upholstered groups.
Baughman’s uniquely American designs are forward-thinking and distinctive, yet unpretentious.The relaxed and timeless quality of his furniture has created a ready and consistent response, and his highly influential work continues to be collected and reinvented and revived by designers around the world.
Paramount to Baughman’s design philosophy was that good design is enduring design. Baughman’s characteristic restraint did not permit the look of mere novelty to enter in. Rather, he achieved a look that is uncompromisingly modern, but which never violates the timeless standards of classic good taste. Baughman’s work was included in “High Styles: Twentieth Century American Design” at the Whitney Museum of American Art. In 1987, he was inducted in the the Furniture Hall of Fame.
Design Institute of America and and Milo Baughman collaborated on designs, engineering and manufacturing techniques that came to define the mid-century modern era of American residential furniture. Thayer Coggin, Inc. and the estate of Milo Baughman have entered into a lifetime licensing agreement, so that the design classics of Mlio Baughman would forever be appropriately built by Thayer Coggin according to their original specifications.
