Vintage Modern Rosewood & Brass Plate Wardrobe or Chifforobe by Milo Baughman Thayer Coggin

Phenomenal vintage modern rosewood & brass plate wardrobe or chifforobe by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin. Comprised of gorgeous rosewood veneer and brass plated steel bands. Beautiful 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.

NOTE: We have matching pieces including  a queen headboard, a large mirror, this wardrobe, and a pair of nightstands.  You can find them all for sale here if they are still available.

“Opening up your closet should be like arriving at a really good party where everyone you see is someone you like.” -Amy Fine Collins. Well, we can certainly say that upon opening this extraordinary wardrobe or chifforobe, you will like everything you see! And not to mention that it is designed and created by the ICONIC duo Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin?? WHAT!! Yes, you heard that correctly!! Let’s start by talking about the incredible, almost breathtaking grain in the rosewood veneer, both inside the cabinet AND outside!! The veneer on the face pieces is so beautifully matched, it just draws you in…it’s stunning to say the least!! And a beautiful brass plated steel band runs from the top of the wardrobe vertically down the center between the two front doors and two horizontal brass plated bands, one above the two lower drawers and one around the base of the cabinet. It’s a marvelous detail!! Finger grooves open the two vertical doors and reveal a top wooden shelf with storage space above, three slide out ebonized shelves, and open storage space underneath the shelves. All of this space PLUS two large lower drawers equal… SO much storage!! This wardrobe would obviously be a fabulous asset to your bedroom, but it would also be beautiful storage for linens or dishes in a dining room. Or maybe in a den or home office for books and other supplies. When eclectic partnerships 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. 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.

This is an exceptional wardrobe or chifforobe designed and created by the famed duo Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin. You don’t want to miss out on this treasure…call it yours!!
