Designer: Milo Baughman, 1923 - 2003
From: United States - Born in Kansas, Moved to Long Beach, California as a baby
Milo Baughman is one of our favorite 20th century furniture designers. His work is both distinctive and influential and while representative of its time, it always strikes us as part of a very personal vision and style. A Baughman piece always seems far more "Baughman" than just "sixties" or "seventies"...
Quote: Furniture that is too obviously designed is very interesting, but too often belongs only in museums.
Attended: Art Center School, now called California Institute of the Arts
