Dining Table and Chairs by Milo Baughman for Directional, 1960s

US$9,500per set

About

A beautiful Mid-Century Modern dining table and chair set designed by Milo Baughman for Directional. The table is made of gorgeous teak, rosewood, and walnut and opens up to 112 inches long. A great set for family gatherings and holidays. The set consists of eight beautifully caned chairs and a table with two leaves. Some minor cup rings on the table surface when viewed at an angle, but overall not distracting. The table is labeled "Directional" and the chairs are labeled "Johnson". The black linen upholstery is vintage but overall good. In the manner of Harvey Probber and other Mid-Century American Modern makers. Would look great in any interior. Dimensions: Arm chairs: 44.5" H x 21.88" W x 22.75" D Side chairs: 44.5" H x 18" W x 22.5" D Table (without leaves): 29.5" H x 72" W x 39" D Table (with leaves): 29.5" H x 112" W x 39" D Each leaf: 20" W.

About the Designer

Milo Baughman

Milo Baughman was one of the most agile and adept modern American furniture designers of the late 20th century. A prolific lecturer and writer on the benefits of good design — he taught for years at Brigham Young University — Baughman (whose often-scrambled surname is pronounced BAWF-man) focused almost exclusively on residential furnishings, having a particular talent for lounge chairs, perhaps the most sociable piece of furniture.Like his fellow adoptive Californians Charles and Ray Eames, Baughman’s furniture has a relaxed and breezy air. Baughman was famously opposed to ostentatious and idiosyncratic designs that were made to excite attention. While many of his chair designs are enlivened by such effects as tufted upholstery, Baughman tended to let his materials carry the aesthetic weight, most often relying on chair and table frames made of sturdy and sleek flat-bar chromed metal, and chairs, tables and cabinets finished with highly-figured wood veneers.Like his colleagues Karl Springer and the multifarious Pierre Cardin, Baughman’s designs are emblematic of the 1970s: sleek, sure and scintillating. As you will see from the furniture presented on 1stDibs, Milo Baughman’s designs are ably employed as either the heart of a décor or its focal point.
