Milo Ray Baughman, Jr., a World War II veteran turned interior designer turned furniture designer, is one of the most influential furniture designers of the latter part of the 20th Century.  Long before it was commonplace for interior designers to receive lucrative licensing deals with large furniture companies, Mr. Baughman created a collection for Drexel Heritage.  It was however, his fifty year collaboration with Thayer Coggin Inc. that produced some of his most iconic designs.

1st Dibs is obviously a great resource for his pieces that have become hot commodities with Interior Designers.  Scour your local antique and vintage shops as well for his pieces or pieces influenced by his work.

Here is a sampling of my favorite pieces…

Simply gorgeous.

A more affordable pair.

Now that’s a “recliner” I could get behind!

Simple but beautiful.

Looks like a good time.

I leave you with a pair of hot pink chairs for your consideration.  I need pink in my house and it hasn’t happened yet.  Well my office IS peachy-pink so that’s pretty close.   Have a great weekend!
