Featured Piece: The Fred Chaise

Classic. Timeless. Iconic. These are words that come to mind when thinking about Thayer Coggin’s line of luxury home furnishings. A fan-favorite among modern and mid-century enthusiasts, the line is home to some of the industry’s most recognizable pieces.

A true classic, the Fred Chaise was proposed to Thayer Coggin by its designer, Milo Baughman, during their initial meeting in 1953. The stunning piece impressed Thayer Coggin so greatly that it helped forge a relationship that led to an enduring partnership.

Angular and sleek, the Fred Chaise embodies the clean-lined comfort of Baughman’s iconic designs. With dramatic, tubular steel legs that support a svelte, undulating upholstery frame, this stunning piece became the foundation for a multitude of glamours pieces that were the result of the Milo Baughman/Thayer Coggin collaboration over the next 50+ years.

The Fred Chaise can be customized with any in-house curated Thayer Coggin upholstery fabric or leather, or your own material. The base is available in polished stainless steel, satin brass, brushed bronze, as well as powder coated black, grey, or white.
