The Baughman designs on display from Thayer Coggin are extraordinary. Never before have we had a show with such depth in a particular period of American furniture.

Though the designs were made as long as 63 years ago, they feel so fresh and exciting, no wonder its so broadly collected today.

It’s interesting to note that if you bought one of these pieces from Cabana Home new today, which are still being made by Thayer Coggin the original manufacture, you would pay almost 50% less than if you purchased a broken down vintage Milo Baughman design.

The Milo Baughman show shares the showroom with the abstract oil paintings of California painter, Brian Hollister. Hollister’s abstract imagery is born out of a desire to evoke the majesty found in nature.

Suggesting the stratigraphy of earthen forms, Hollister creates works with strong horizontal bands of color which shift between field and ground. Hollister’s work is exhibited regularly in Santa Fe and Los Angeles, and now at Cabana Home Santa Barbara through April 28th, 2016.

This show is made possible by Thayer Coggin, the original manufacture of the Milo Baughman Collection, and the Edward Cella Gallery in Los Angeles.

Please stop by and see Art + Form show at Cabana Home while its still on the central coast, we would love to see you.


Goodnight moon.
