One of the leading modern furniture designers of the 20th century, Milo Baughman is a name to remember. A pioneer in modern design, Baughman’s design philosophy was that good design will endure. In 1953, Baughman began collaborating with Thayer Coggin and maintained this relationship up until his death in 2003. Over the years his work has been reinvented and revived which shows the influence of his relaxed and timeless designs. Uniquely American and very forward-thinking, here are some of the collections classic pieces that are availabe at Sklar.
Design Classic 1092 Chair
Seemingly sleek and what appears to be simple in design, make no mistake, immense attention was poured into every detail of the 1092 chair. Its unconventional styling is what attracts attention from discerning buyers, while its top-quality construction demands respect. Chairs like this are not created with mass-production in mind. Each piece sets the standard of what’s considered good taste.
