Milo Baughman Mid Century Reclining Lounge

Ah, what a find. I happened across this beautiful lounge chair on Craigslist about 10 minutes after it was posted.  I was the first to call and therefore the lucky new owner.  I called Deann and told her I was on my way!  I threw on a hat and head toward the beach to get it.  

 Turns out its an original Milo Baughman for James, Inc.! He did some of his early work for James before Thayer Coggin.

The walnut frame is in excellent condition with wear only on the arm rests.  The original caramel-colored velvet upholstery is in amazing condition.  It fully reclines and is quite comfortable.

I had a black leather recliner in a very similar style and sold it. I might just keep this one...

Check out similar chairs.... I just love this style!

What a find! It's absolutely beautiful. I've located a black one in a CL ad, but it's in the middle of a warehouse full of things, so the seller didn't give individual prices. When I called him, he was out of town "picking," and won't be home till the middle of next week. I'm on pins and needles till he gets home.

I have one of the 1950's versions of this recliner! I got it back in 2005 for FREE!!!!! It needs new upholstery. I love this chair! It is the most comfortable recliner I have ever sat in, napped in, chilled in, etc.

I have a gold one, not sure of the year. It was sitting in my brother's garage collecting dust and he gave it to me. It's the chair everyone wants to sit in!
