The Iconic Designs of Milo Baughman

Chances are you’ve seen a Milo Baughman-designed piece perhaps without even knowing it. After all, many of his mid-century modern furnishings are considered iconic of the movement and have been featured in a variety of famous settings. A circular sofa, a metal-framed leather scoop chair, a drum table – all of these 1950s – 1970s furnishings are representative of elegant Baughman style and likely to be seen on the set of Mad Men, in the homes of celebrities and gracing an upscale corporate office.

Not only are his designs iconic, they are also enduring. Baughman himself admitted toward the end of his life, “With an ongoing interest in 1950s and 1960s design, a lot of my work has been reintroduced and been very well-received. Increasingly, architects are using these mid-century classics from the pioneer producers of this period.”
