Milo Baughman Thayer Coggin Sofa

This is a classic Milo Baughman sofa made by Thayer Coggin in 1971. Thayer Coggin has long been known for their quality furniture and sleek modern designs. Milo Baughman had a long and fruitful relationship with Thayer Coggin. From the Thayer Coggin website:
"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 were forward-thinking and distinctive, yet unpretentious. The relaxed and timeless quality of his furniture 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 does 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. "

The sofa is free of stains and no tears or rips. There is a very small thread pulled in the fabric on one cushion. It's not noticeable at all..It's pretty clean but one should have it cleaned as I would suggest for any piece of vintage upholstery. SOLD
