Description We are in love with this classic modern sofa here at the shop. It is considered a tuxedo style having its arm height the same as its back and was designed by one of the most currently sought-after designers, Milo Baughman. In addition, it was produced by high-end, high-quality furniture maker Thayer Coggin, Inc. Its low-slung silhouette makes it seem longer than its three cushions are; so, that, along with its simple lines, make it the perfect sofa for your mid-century modern esthetic. It is wearing its original white linen-like fabric which we have had professionally cleaned; however, it will need recovered because…you know…white! It also looks to me to be a great napping couch!

Here is a little bit of info for you about 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.

If you want an iconic sofa to last you a lifetime you need look no farther. Make this one yours!

Handsome modern tuxedo style sofa designed by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin. This is from an unspecified collection from the 1980s. It is in good vintage condition. The structure is solid but even though we have had it professionally cleaned it has staining and it will need to be recovered. It is priced accordingly. Please see photos. Circa 1986.
