BREATHTAKING!!! Just look at this magnificent modern pair of Parson’s style accent chairs by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin!! Gorgeous ORIGINAL tribal print upholstering in beautiful colors of brown, beige, mustard, and red. It is a little worn as you would expect with a vintage piece with normal use and wear, but we think it just adds to the overall beauty of them plus, they are very comfortable and inviting to sit in. They have a solid and sturdy build with a Parsons’ block style square base and stretcher. They have a wide rectangle backrest and square loose seat cushion and it’s ALL wrapped in this stunning original tribal print. Again…did we mention these are by the ICONIC duo Milo Baughman and Thayer Coggin?? The epitome of an excellent design team! They would be wonderful used as accent chairs in your living room, bedroom, or sitting area but they would be FABULOUS as host and hostess chairs at your dining table! When eclectic designers such as Milo Baughman and Thayer Coggin come together and create, it results in furniture with style and presence that is simply unmatchable and highly sought after.
One of the most remarkable partnerships in the mid-century modern to modern design world was the phenomenal furniture making duo of Milo Baughman and Thayer Coggin. Milo Baughman, a 20th Century genius of design, was born in Western Kansas in 1923 but was moved a year later by his family to Long Beach, California. He created Milo Baughman Design Inc. in 1947 and began designing interiors and furniture. Thayer Coggin was born in 1922 in Denton, North Carolina. Twelve years later his family moved 25 miles north to High Point where he grew up surrounded by furniture manufacturing. Thayer’s first love was furniture and Milo’s was design. So, together in 1953, after the two met, history was made in American furniture making by one of the greatest collaborations in the industry. During his career and before his death in 2003, Milo did design for several other companies as well as his own, but it is his collaboration with Thayer Coggin that is most impressive and sought-after today. Thayer Coggin, Inc. is still in business today even after its namesake’s death and is still offering classic selections from the late Baughman’s designs.
We ADORE this pair of chairs and are sure you do too…you need to make them yours!! (BEFORE WE CHANGE OUR MINDS!!)
