Milo Ray Baughman, Jr. (1923-2003) was one of the leading modern furniture designers of the twentieth century. His uniquely American designs were forward-thinking and distinctive, yet unpretentious and affordable. His highly influential works continue to be copied, reinvented, and revived by contemporary furniture designers and dealers alike.
Throughout his career, Baughman designed for a number of furniture companies including Mode Furniture, Glenn of California, The Inco Company, Pacific Iron, Murray Furniture of Winchendon, Arch Gordon, Design Institute America, George Kovacs, Directional, Henredon, and Drexel. He is most famous for his fifty-year association with Thayer Coggin, Inc. of High Point, North Carolina.
