Milo Baughman was a renowned American furniture designer. A consistent innovator, Baughman designed for many leading manufacturers, but is most well known for his work with Thayer Coggin, for which he served as design director from 1953 until his death in 2003. Known as a cutting edge designer, Baughman redefined American furniture, designing furniture that broke the mold while maintaining appeal in American homes for over sixty years. In addition to designing, Baughman was also an educator, teaching at Brigham Young University. His furniture is in several permanent museum collections.
A protégé of Thayer Coggin’s original design director Milo Baughman, Guy Hill currently serves as the furniture company’s design director. In addition to adding modern updates to Baughman’s iconic designs, Hill has designed several furniture series that build off of the legacy of the company’s midcentury modern designs, while fitting into current homes. His line of furniture spans chairs, sofas, and sectionals.
