Description This is the epitome of luxury and distinguished furniture. It’s not often you come across such sought-after items, even one piece, by the famed Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin…but to find an ENTIRE BEDROOM SET??? Are you serious? Yes, we are!! We are excited to offer you a phenomenal bedroom set comprised of a dresser, which could also be used as a credenza or a buffet, a large mirror, a magnificent pair of nightstands which could also be used as end tables, a queen-sized headboard, a wardrobe which could double as a cabinet for linens or dishes, and a fabulous pair of lamps. And, although we would love to keep this amazing set together, we are also selling the pieces individually. Each individual piece has a description with full details here if they are still available. Let’s start by talking about the incredible, almost breathtaking grain in the rosewood veneer, both outside the pieces AND inside!! GORGEOUS!! The veneer on the face pieces is so beautifully matched, it just draws you in…it’s stunning to say the least!! Beautiful brass plated steel bands adorn the dresser, the nightstands, the headboard, the wardrobe, and the pair of lamps. It’s a marvelous detail!! 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.

The opportunity to own an extraordinary bedroom set such as this doesn’t come along very often, AND especially by an ICONIC duo such as Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin!! Don’t let this pass you by…make it yours!!

Exemplary vintage modern bedroom set including a dresser or credenza, a large mirror, a pair of nightstands, a queen-sized headboard, a wardrobe or chifforobe, and a pair of lamps. Gorgeous 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. The glass on the mirror has a few age-related scratches, and a bit of the silvering is worn. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1970’s.

NOTE: We are selling these pieces as a set or individually. You can find them all for sale here if they are still available. If one item sells separately, we will pull the listing for the full set; however, we would entertain combining pieces if you are interested.
