Starting in 1953, pioneering furniture designer Milo Baughman (1923-2003) began a long, storied and fruitful collaboration with Thayer Coggin. Often imitated but never quite equaled, Milo Baughman's classics are timeless staples of the American design vocabulary. Milo Baughman's fresh version of form meets function resulted in highly influential works with restrained, refined modern silhouettes that are not only approachable but supremely comfortable.
The prescient Baughman observed, "I believe there is a substantial new market emerging for good modern design. It is comprised of people who have had enough of timid, conforming ways, who are no longer unsure of their status and who are willing to experiment. And which dispels the idea that you have to be an architect or intellectual to live with it."
Thayer Coggin and the Baughman estate have entered into a lifetime licensing agreement, so the design classics of Milo Baughman can continue to be authentically built by Thayer Coggin according to original specifications with each piece upholstered by a single master craftsperson. Today, we are proud to reintroduce the following Milo Baughman design classics to our catalog of American-made, custom upholstered furniture.
Roxy Swivel-Tilt Tub Chairs
Designed by Milo Baughman
The last few years have seen a resurgence of interest in the swivel chair, and no one did it better than Milo Baughman. Roxy's timeless looks never fade from fashion. Born in 1965, with a steam-bent plywood upholstery shell, she looks as fashion forward as ever. A built-in lumbar support and swivel-and-tilt mechanism make lounging around with Roxy some of the best days of your life.
Now Roxy is available with more options. Roxy-O comes with a metal base in either polished stainless, brushed bronze or satin brass - the perfect touch of jewelry for a lady of style and grace like Roxy.
Roxy Coat-On puts on the glam. With a stainless steel or satin brass wrap, Roxy Coat-On is ready to entertain and seduce. Conceived by Baughman in 1974, RoxyCoat-On will be your new feel-good lounge chair.
