American, 1923–2003. Milo Baughman was a modern furniture designer who believed that furniture deficient of the inherent quality to positively benefit people’s lives, belonged only in museums. Baughman’s designs married functionality with affordability to create chairs, sofas and tables which were comfortable and distinctive. He started designing at a young age of 13 when he developed the architectural plans for his family home. Almost a decade later, he started his own, eponymous company. His furniture employed materials like chrome, stainless, glass and leather and could be identified with clean lines and geometric forms, displaying a forward-thinking simplicity. His iconic designs continue to be copied and reinvented in the new and secondary contemporary art markets.
