Furniture Design by Milo Baughman

Furniture Design by Milo Baughman

Mr Baughman’s designs are obviously built on the legacy of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer, but the use of modern-day materials, colors and American West Coast style make do for functional furniture which appealed, and was available, to a large public. We, at Mimi Berlin, like his dramatic designs very much and could easily live the rest of our lives with the pink sectional sofa with steel bottom.

Which piece is your favorite?

Mr Baughman designed for numerous American companies but is most famous work with Thayer Coggin Inc., (manufacturers from North Carolina that still produces Milo Baughman furniture today) which began in 1953 and lasted until his death in 2003. According to this company “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.” (read more at thayercoggin.com)
