About

This stunning set of six mid century modern dining chairs were realized by the legendary American designer Milo Baughman, circa 1970. Baughman was a pioneer "California Modernism", a cross disciplinary movement inspired by the environment of Southern California, especially its strong Mediterranean light that produces crisp, hard edged shadows. This inspiration is also evident in the rigid geometries contained the modernist buildings of Baughman's contemporaries, including Richard Neutra and Charles & Ray Eames in architecture and John McLaughlin and Frederick Hammersley in painting. 

This set of six dining chairs (two with arms, and four without) encapsulates Baughman's forward thinking and distinctive, yet unpretentious approach to design. The arms, legs and base of the arm chairs are composed of flat beams in lustrous chrome that connect at right angles. The back is formed from two angled supports (also in chrome) that meet at an obtuse angle. They create an elongated rectangular in the back of the chair that is repeated by a concentric rectangular within of smaller dimensions. Aside from the obvious, the four chairs without arms have a nearly identical composition, except that the legs are positioned under the base of the chair, as opposed to outside of the perimeter. 

With their clean lines and modern materials, these chairs are incredibly versatile. They would be a winning addition in virtually any style of interior from classic Mid Century Modern to contemporary. Additionally, they would be perfect as dining chairs, or split up as occasional chairs. All six chairs are in excellent condition and have been newly reupholstered in stunning platinum velvet.
