Milo Baughman believed that good design is enduring design, and his Goodland Sofa Collection (1968) beautifully demonstrates this idea. Named for the Kansas town where he was born, Goodland reflects the style and ease for which Baughman is known. This collection began as a sofa designed for his own home – his daughter still has the original – which he later expanded upon and launched for retail customers. Goodland pieces are elegantly proportioned with comfortable cushions that have just the right give and thin arms that help maximize the seating area. Made in U.S.A.
Kiln-dried solid maple frame; matrix webbing suspension; foam seat cushions wrapped in poly-blend down; back cushions filled with trillium fibers from recycled materials; oxidized bronze-plated steel base; fabric upholstery.
"Furniture that is too obviously designed," said Milo Baughman, "is very interesting, but too often belongs only in museums." In Baughman's distinguished body of work, his vast creativity never interfered with functionality, instead he struck an ideal modernist balance. Using the consummate mid-century modern materials - like chrome, stainless, glass and leather - he created a new visual vocabulary, built on the legacy of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer, but infused with the style and ease of the American West Coast.
Born in Kansas in 1923, Baughman was raised in Long Beach, California. At age 13 he was enlisted by his parents to contribute to the design of the family home - and, thus, his path was set. He served in the Army Air Force in World War II, where he gained experience designing officers' clubs. After returning from the war he studied architectural design and in 1947, at the age of 24, he launched Milo Baughman Design, Inc. He quickly received commissions from Glenn of California - where he worked with designer Greta Magnusson Grossman - and Pacific Iron, collaborating with these Los Angeles companies to create what we now call the California Modern aesthetic.
