Take another look at this awesome queen headboard designed and created by the ICONIC duo Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin! WHAT!! Yes, you heard that right… Let’s start by talking about the incredible, almost breathtaking grain in the rosewood veneer. The veneer on the face pieces is so beautifully matched, it just draws you in…it’s stunning to say the least!! It features two beautiful brass plated steel bands on the front of the headboard… it’s a marvelous detail!! It is sure to be a superb addition to any bedroom! And just a fun suggestion… my mom says if she were using this headboard, she would have a hanging mechanism or wall cleat made so that you can attach it to the wall and lift it a little higher, use a platform rather than a Hollywood frame, and toss out the box springs. Voila! Maximum exposure of the headboard! If that sounds like something you would be interested in, we would be happy to provide a wall cleat upon purchase of the headboard.

Versatility, exemplary presence, and magnificent mid-century modern style…how can you go wrong?

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.

There’s nothing quite as luxurious as a beautiful bed! Don’t let this phenomenal headboard by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin pass you by… make it yours!!

the details

Beautiful vintage modern queen headboard by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin. Comprised of gorgeous rosewood veneer and brass plated steel bands. Gorgeous condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. There are a few chips, nicks, or dings in the wood veneer and some rust spots on the brass plated steel bands. The smaller veneer flaws were filled while larger pieces were replaced for restoration, and it looks beautiful. The bands have been professionally cleaned and we left them with their small scratches, rust spots, and age marks as we did not want to change the authenticity of the piece and honestly, we love the look of a little age patina. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1970’s.
